Dirty Dancing remake announced

Dirty Dancing is coming back to the big screen.

Lionsgate said it is remaking the 1987 film that starred Jennifer Grey as a naive dance student and Patrick Swayze as her teacher and lover.

The studio said High School Musical creator Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the original film, will direct the remake.

Ortega said he is eager to discover and cast "the next breakout triple-threats" to define dancing for a generation, the way Patrick did in the original Dirty Dancing.
