‘Dirty Dancing’ To Get a Remake, Put Baby In Corner

There’s a remake of Footloose just around the corner, and now we just found out that Baby is going back in the corner for her chance to emerge in an upcoming remake of Dirty Dancing.

Kenny Ortega, the director of High School Musical, is remaking the classic Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey film Dirty Dancing for a generation who have probably never heard the classic line “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Ortega, who served as the choreographer on the original film, told Us magazine:

“The opportunity to direct Dirty Dancing is like returning home for me. Growing up in the ’60s on the dance floor helped define me as a person and as an artist.”

Ortega’s last movie was the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] film This Is It.

He also said that it would be hard to fill Patrick Swayze’s dancing shoes:

“Patrick Swayze set the bar for men dancing in the movies as Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire did before him.”

The search is currently on to find actors to fill the parts originally played by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Patrick Swayze[/lastfm] and Jennifer Grey in the original film.

Who do you think should get the roles? Should they flip it up with an African-American or Hispanic cast? Let us know in the comments section below.
