Hey, if Kevin Bacon can say positive things about the Footloose remake…MAYBE we should give this a chance as well! Keyword here is "maybe."
Last we heard about Kenny Ortega/Lionsgate's Dirty Dancing remake, they had just hired Monte Carlo writer Maria Maggenti to write the screenplay.
Looks like she'll have plenty of time to make that script GREAT, because the Dirty remake has been given a release date of July 26, 2013.
In the meanwhile, we'll continue to cherish the original
and we'll continue pretending that pathetic sequel never happened.
What do U think? Will Kevin Bacon also like the Dirty Dancing remake??? LOLz!

What a beautiful way to remember him. Whenever we think on Patrick Swayze, we always remember him as the sexy Johnny Castle standing tall and dancing sultry to the music with Jennifer Grey. Such a legacy.
Yesterday, his wife Lisa Niemi was on hand to unveil the wax figure of her husband at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, depicting him in a pivotal scene in Dirty Dancing.
Very sweet. Now, hold long before someone tries to do a lift with it. LOL.

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:

She's no fool! No one puts Baby in a corner when there might be a cameo to be had! DUH!!!
We sense there are more than a few of you out there who are outraged by the fact that Dirty Dancing, the iconic romantic film featuring Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze, will be remade for a new generation. We feel your pain, but how about we join hands and hearts and voices (voices,hearts and haaands) and follow Jennifer's lead on this. She seems to think this is going to be a good thing.
She released a statement shortly after the news broke about the film, saying:
