dirty dancing remake gets a writer

Love it or hate it, Lionsgate is moving forward quickly with their Dirty Dancing remake!

Last we heard about the project, Jennifer Grey was defending the movie, and she expressed her confidence in Kenny Ortega's ability to take on the remake.

Now, Dirty Dancing progress continues, and Monte Carlo writer Maria Maggenti has signed on to write the screenplay.

Treat this script with care, Maria! You'll be fighting against A LOT of loyal fans who don't want anyone touching their favorite film!

How are U feeling about the Dirty Dancing remake? Do U think the Monte Carlo writer will be able to pull this off???

    Jennifer Gray is so desperate for cash that she's hoping for a cameo role. its going to take a lot of cash to fix her nose disaster…..

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Leave Dirty Dancing alone

    Just call it something else. There is nothing and no one that could ever touch the Original! As much as they say their not trying to compare it to the original, by calling it Dirty Dancing they really are. This is just so sad in my eyes.
    thumbs down Hollywood!

    patrick is passed on and i do miss him i will refuse to watch a remake just on those grounds,.. as for her she should of left that honker alone as ugly as it was

    They need to just leave the old legend films alone. My guess is that it will be rubbish, and the most significant change will be that 3 to 5 sex scenes are aded in.

    And apparently Lea Michelle is going to play the part of Baby…? With Emma Stone in it somewhere and Cheryl Cole's ex boyfriend? Hell to the no. Way to turn an amazing film into a tweeny-bopper fest.

    How pathetic has Hollywood become? Well not pathetic as much as they are rejects. Ones who can not think past a text message, and all the non English gibber jabber shortening words to type faster makes one real STUPID. This is why dummies are doing remakes, no one has any original ideas anymore.

    I am affraid she won´t do justice to this movie. I am so affraid what will come this. I mean it´s such an epic movie and they won´t be able to make it so magical as the first movie was. There is no other Patrick. I think they can find many more Jennifers but PATRICK is one and olny to play Johnny. I wish they would leave this alone.
    But at the same time I am kind of looking forward to it just to see if it´s going to rock or suck :D
