Dirty Dancing Set For Remake - Can It Be As Good As Patrick Swayze And Jennifer Grey In The 1987 Original?
PRESS ASSOCIATION -- Dirty Dancing is coming back to the big screen.
Lionsgate said it is remaking the 1987 film that starred Jennifer Grey as a naive dance student and Patrick Swayze as her teacher and lover.
The studio said High School Musical creator Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the original film, will direct the remake.
Ortega said he is eager to discover and cast "the next breakout triple-threats" to define dancing for a generation, the way Swayze did in the original Dirty Dancing.
