Remakes & Reboots: Upcoming Movies You've Seen Before


Director: Kenny Ortega (High School Musical)Cast: TBD

Category: Remake of the 1987  film.

Our take: For many people whose hearts were stolen by the tale of sheltered 'Baby' Houseman (Jennifer Grey) and bad boy dancing instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), the news of this remake is going to be akin to blaspheme. A different dance movie remake (Footloose) did well enough for itself recently, and the fact that this new Dirty Dancing will be directed by High School Musical helmer Kenny Ortega all but ensures that it will hold strong appeal for the tween-to-teenage crowd.

Line up a few big-name teen heartthrobs in the leading roles, and sad to say, another classic will have effectively been painted over with a hipper, booty-shaking, crotch-grinding modern sheen.
