Fans of the ‘Dirty Dancing’ movie were more than a little skeptical when they heard that there was going to be a remake of the film coming to theaters, but the star of the original film, Jennifer Grey is in full support of the idea.
The actress took to her Twitter account to show her support of the classic, saying;
“I love @Kennyortega and trust that he will do something special #DirtyDancingRemake. Blown away by all of the love expressed for #DirtyDancing. Makes me want to see it again. So grateful to have been a part of it.”
She later spoke to the Wall Street Journal about the project and had this to say;
“I’m so excited about this news and I think there’s nobody better to do this than my beloved Kenny Ortega who is as responsible as anyone for the success of the first one. I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do with it.”
The remake’s director and choreographer for the original film, Kenny Ortega has been feeling nostalgic about directing the remake and has said; “The opportunity to direct Dirty Dancing is like returning home for me.”
It’s hard to image this film without Jennifer Grey and the late Patrick Swayze, guess we’ll have to wait and see how it pans out.
