ABC has ordered a remake of the 1987 Dirty Dancing film with some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Just as the classic film, ABC’s reboot movie will center on Baby, a young woman in the 1960s who vacations with her family in the Catskills and falls in love with Johnny, a young dance instructor.
The original feature starred Jennifer Grey as Baby and Patrick Swayze in the role of Johnny, an on-screen couple that was able to capture the hearts of millions of viewers around the world. It grossed over $214 million and was later adapted into a 2004 stage musical, “Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story on Stage.”
The upcoming Dirty Dancing adaptation is set to star actress Abigail Breslin in the iconic role of Baby. Breslin dished on the ABC reboot: “The production is going to be amazing. There’s so many amazing people behind it and the script is incredible.”
The cast also includes Sarah Hyland, Nicole Scherzinger, Colt Prattes, Debra Messing, and Casper Smart.
With more details coming out on the remake of Dirty Dancing, fans of the original movie have voiced mixed reactions on the cast and filming itself.
