PHEW – ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Postponed Due To Casting Issues.
Would actually presume it is because of the hate dumped on this stupid notion. No remake needed. As the ‘Footloose’ remake showed us. Well, actually as every reboot or remake shows us. They all suck.
Lionsgate is postponing the Dirty Dancing reboot. The studio has put the remake on ice for another year for casting reasons, Deadline has learned. The remake of the 1987 Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey film was scheduled to be released in July 2013, but now the movie is off the studio’s release dance card at least until 2014. Kenny Ortega, who was a choreographer on the original, is attached to direct the film. No cast had been announced.
