The sequel of the hit summer romantic movie, Dirty Dancing, is now in the works, said the CEO of Lionsgate, Jon Feltheimer. The movie has been renewed after 33 years of the release of the original movie. It is confirmed that Jennifer Grey, the one who starred in the original movie and played the role of Baby Houseman, will be returning for the movie. Her summer camp was enlivened by an affair with her dance teacher, Johnny Castle, played by Patrick Swayze.
Unfortunately, Patrick Swayze is not with us today as he passed away in 2009. The actor was suffering from pancreatic cancer and died at the age of 57.
Dirty Dancing Sequel Details
Very less is known about this project so far, but it is confirmed that Jonathan Levine will be directing this movie, and Jennifer Grey will be the executive producer of the film. Jonathan is well known for his work in 50/50 Warm Bodies.
Jon Feltheimer said that it is going to be exactly the same kind of romantic movie that the fans were expecting waiting for. The original movie made a profit of $214m at the box office, and the budget of the movie was just $6m. One of the songs from the movie, (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life, won a Golden Globe and an Oscar. The song became a fixture of pop-cultural reference because of the climactic scene during which the couple dance to the song and culminates in an impressive lift.
A Secret Cinema immersive screening that was first played in the year 2016 and was lined up to be on its lineup of London in July 2020, but due to unavoidable circumstances, it has been postponed by a year. Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, a spinoff film in 2004, which starred Romola Garai and Diego Luna, and was set in 1985 Cuba, was released and got moderate reviews.
