According to Production Weekly's twitter feed, Lionsgate studios is developing a remake of the 1987 film "Dirty Dancing," based on a new script by "Uptown Girl" scribe Julia Dahl.
John from Cinematical had the same questions that first popped into my head:
How can you outdo the Swayze and Jennifer Grey in one of the best scenes ever? How can you ever top Jerry Orbach as the gruff daddy? Why does this even need a remake?But alas, the only info we have is the tweet from PW about the news. We are sure to hear more news later, but for now its just a lot of speculation from people who think they know.
