More “Dirty Dancing”?


According to, Lionsgate plans to develop a remake of “Dirty Dancing” (1987). The script will be written by Julia Dahl (“Uptown Girls”).

“Dirty Dancing” is one of my favorite movies so naturally I was interested when they decided to make a second “Dirty Dancing” film back in 2004. Thus “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights” was made starring Diego Luna (“The Terminal”) and Romola Garai (“Atonement”). “Havana Nights” was not a bad movie but in my opinion, it didn’t have the same spirit that made the first movie so memorable. Frankly I kind of feel like there are too many remakes and dance remakes in the works so the real question is: how are they going to make this new “Dirty Dancing” film stand out and have it be both fresh and current?
