80’s mega hit Dirty Dancing will be given a new lease of life with news of it’s remake. The classic will be remade for the movie screen, with original Dirty Dancing choreographer Kenny Ortega confirmed to direct and produce the remake. Huge thanks to my Mallee correspondent Marianne Ferguson who sent through the tip! Patrick Swayze, may you rest in peace.
“The opportunity to direct ‘Dirty Dancing’ is like returning home for me,” Ortega said. “I believe everywhere you look there is evidence that the talent is out there and I can’t wait to begin the process of discovering the next breakout triple-threats.”
