What was once a rumour, has now been confirmed – a new ‘Dirty Dancing’ is currently in the works.

 

 

Jennifer Grey, who played ‘Baby’ in the 1987 original film, will star and executive produce the upcoming reboot.

 

 

 

Back in 2016 during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer confessed she was asked to take part in ABC’s TV movie remake, but declined the offer, “I was flattered, because I always want to be asked, because it’s nice to want to be included. But for me, it would be sacrosanct for me to do it, because it didn’t feel appropriate to me.  It feels like if you’re going to do your own thing, do your own thing.”

 

 

Although Jennifer has yet to reveal which role she will take on in the reboot, she says, “I am always interested in any iteration of something where they feel there’s more to be gotten, and I would love to see what it is that they come up with.  I think they’ve got wonderful actors in it. I’m going to be watching it and I’m excited…I’m only flattered and excited for people who are excited enough to put their stamp on it and see what they make of it and how they make it their own.”

 

 

The original film starred Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze.  No other details are available at this time.
