Dirty Dancing is a 1980s classic that is still universally loved by the generation who watched it when it came out, as well as the many younger ones who have discovered it via home video or the internet. A movie no one expected much of, it became a smash hit that earned millions and cemented Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey as major stars.
After a prequel and a stage version, in 2011 it was announced that there would be a Dirty Dancing remake, but production stalled and was rescheduled several times, before finally being canceled. Finally, television network ABC picked up the rights for the film and is going to produce it in the form of a television musical due to air on the 24th of May 2017.
Abigail Breslin will take on the role of Baby and Colt Prattes will play Johnny. Recently, a series of behind-the-scenes shots were released, so take a sneak-peak to get a feel for the remake of your favorite motion picture.
