Lionsgate boss confirms new ‘Dirty Dancing’ movie with Jennifer Grey


Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer has confirmed “one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood” – Jennifer Grey is starring in and executive producing a new Dirty Dancing movie.

Jonathan Levine has been attached to oversee the film, which Feltheimer tells Deadline will be just like the 1987 original, which raked in almost $220 million at the global box office.

“It will be exactly the kind of romantic, nostalgic movie that the franchise’s fans have been waiting for and that have made it the biggest-selling library title in the company’s history,” the CEO said.
Grey signed on last month (July 2020).
