Dirty Dancing Remake in the Works

Baby May Come Out of Her Corner For a Dirty Dancing Remake

It's starting to feel like a week never goes by without news of a movie remake, and I have a feeling you're all going to have some strong opinions about this one. According to a tweet from Production Weekly, there's a remake of Dirty Dancing in the works. Details are still sketchy, but apparently the script will be written by Julia Dahl. Personally, I'm a little worried about messing with a classic — wasn't the Havana Nights sequel enough?

On the other hand, I have to admit that I'm looking forward to the remake of Fame, with fresh talent and new 21st century setting (check out a hot new trailer after the jump). I was also impressed with Channing Tatum's spot-on impression of Patrick Swayze from a few weeks ago, but I'm not sure I can imagine new actors doing justice to the original — Dirty Dancing's '80s setting and utterly cheesy dialogue are inherent in its wonder. A couple of years ago, you all weighed in on who would make the perfect Baby and Johnny, but who would you cast now that it is really happening?

I absolutely abhorred Havana Nights. They couldn't get it right then, they probably can't now

One of my favorites - LEAVE CLASSICS ALONE HOLLYWOOD! "Havana Nights" was a ridiculous mess and I could only watch half even though I was bored. When will ppl. stop ruining good movies...

No. As long as people still watch the original there's no need to reintroduce audiences to the story. Also I thought even though this was filmed in the 80s it was set earlier

One of my favorite movies ever. I think they should leave it alone. Next they'll remake Flashdance too...

I had totally blocked Havana Nights from my memory. For good reason.

Usually I'm against remakes, but this one I wouldn't mind. Although I loved the movie, I just never bought the relationship between Patrick and Jennifer.

This is a movie that should never be remade! Looking forward to Fame too, much to my husband's dismay.
