Social media success of NBC’s live musicals (not to mention the actual success of The Wiz) already goaded FOX into Grease and Rocky Horror remakes, and now ABC has its own baby no one’s putting in a corner. Dirty Dancing will get the three-hour musical treatment, starring Scream Queens alum Abigail Breslin to boot.
Dirty Dancing,' the classic '80s film starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey (aka Ferris Bueller's party-pooping sister), turned 25 years old on Tuesday and there's a lot to be thankful for.
Not only did it mark one of the best on screen appearances of Swayze's pecs and abs, it also marked the moment when acting all sexy while trying to ballroom dance was considered a legitimate way to woo women. Too bad the movie didn't come with a "Please Do Not Try This At Home" warning.
Apparently we're going to have the time of our lives once again since Lionsgate is planning to remake 'Dirty Dancing.' They already have Kenny Ortega, choreographer turned filmmaker, on board the production but now they have another musical-friendly person on board with hopes to make it like something you're already familiar with.
