Can’t they just leave Baby in the corner where she belongs? A Dirty Dancing remake is reportedly in the works. This doesn’t surprise us, since pretty much every great 80s classic has already been swooped up for a remake. So it was just a matter of time!
According to trade Production Weekly, Lionsgate is developing a remake of the 1987 classic and already have screenwriter Julia Dahl on board.
The original was made for a measly $6 million, and went on to gross over $200 million worldwide. It also became the first film ever to sell a million copies on video and won several Golden Globes. You’d think the studio would have learned its lesson already, and not mess with a good thing.
Their sequel to Dirty Dancing, Havana Nights, released in 2004, cost Lionsgsate $25 million, and it only ended up making $27 million across the globe. Ouch!
We don’t have a good feeling about this…that is, unless Patrick Swayze makes a cameo!
