Nobody puts Chanel No. 5 in the corner!

Fresh off of the success of NBC's The Wiz Live! and with Grease Live! airing in January on FOX — it looks like ABC wants in on the Primetime musical craze.

That's because it was announced on Tuesday that Abigail Breslin has been cast as Jennifer Grey's lead character in a 2016 remake of Dirty Dancing!

While Disney's adaptation won't be live like Peter Pan Live!, The Sound of Music Live!, and the others, it will still be interesting to see who the House of Mouse casts in Patrick Swayze's part alongside the Oscar-nominated actress…

We have to say, we're surprised by this casting. Abigail seems like an odd choice to star in her very own musical, especially after her — let's say questionable — performance in Scream Queens!

Luckily, Adam Anders and Peer Åström from Glee will be writing the music, so at least that aspect of the 3-hour show will be tight.

Make sure to catch Abigail Breslin & Co. when Dirty Dancing not-Live airs in 2016 on ABC!
