‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake on the Way

Movie bosses are bringing Dirty Dancing back to the big screen — a remake of the 1987 classic is in the pipeline.

The film — starring Patrick Swayze as a dance instructor — took in a massive $213 million at the worldwide box office and propelled the actor to international superstardom.

A sequel, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, starring Diego Luna, was released in 2004 and a theater production has been wowing audiences on Broadway and in London’s West End.

And now film executives are keen to cash in on the continuing popularity of the movie, with a new version of the original picture.

Bosses at Lionsgate productions are currently developing a script with Uptown Girls writer Julia Dahl, according to Production Weekly.
