Dirty Dancing's Remake Director Brushin' His Shoulders Off

Dirty Dancing Remake

Kenny Ortega is fully aware of the hate spewed his way, but he's ready for the challenge that lies ahead as he directs the remake of Dirty Dancing.

The beloved 80s film is a classic. Everyone knows 'nobody puts baby in a corner.'

But some people thinking remaking such a classic is doing just that.

However, the director assures us he doesn't want to cause any disrespect, stating:

I’m not looking for someone to fill Patrick Swayze’s shoes, or Jennifer Grey’s shoes. They’re one of a kind and they deserve to be called that.We have a big challenge and a long road ahead of us. All I can say is that I hope we can bring something unique and original to help change the naysayers minds about the film.

In our opinion, it all depends on the casting. If they got someone like Ryan Gosling, it could be A-MAZING!

But most likely it's just going to be awful.

What do U think? Who could pull this movie up for air?

    Certain movies should never be redone and this is definitely one of them. Its a Classic for a reason. Let it remain one in peace.

    NOOOOO… DONT DO IT! :(

    I can think of 500 movies they could re-make before this one.

    PLEASE DON'T CAST KNOWN ACTORS FOR THIS!!

    Get fresh faces! Most actors and actresses out there now have an equal amount of people who hate/like them. Get us fresh faces with no stigma or opinions attached, at LEAST for the two lead roles, or I promise it will fail other wise.

    If they alter the script in any way, I will not be happy.

    If everyone stopped paying to see remakes they would stop making them.
    YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE THIS STOP!
    It all comes down to the mighty dollar.
    If these remakes made no money the greedy fatcats would move on and demand something original.

    Re: katpat – totally agree. unfortunately, they'll probably alter and modernize it to appeal to the mass audience. kenny ortega did high school musical, this is such a frightening choice for the movie

    Re: purplegloss – Okay yes he directed hsm… HOWEVER! He CHOREOGRAPHED dirty dancing in the first place. I think we should try and give him the benefit of the doubt here, he obviously knew what he was doing then. Im nervous too about casting but with the amazing dancers there are out there now it is kind of exciting :)
