In yet another ‘Why the fuck are they doing this??’ move by Hollywood big-wigs, Lionsgate studio execs have announced that the 1987 classic Dirty Dancing is being remade for a 2013 reboot of the franchise.
When are people going to stop touching our favorite classics? Other than the fact that Swayze has a shirt on in some scenes, that movie is flawless! Perfection like that shouldn’t be touched.
We’re hearing rumors that, surprise surprise, Lea Michele is being considered for the role of Baby, but we’re not sure how we feel about that. She’s already played out the ‘I’m the cutest loser in the world’ card… We don’t need to see her do it again in a bodysuit!
Alongside the rumors of Michele are the torturous ones that Dancing With The Star’s Derek Hough is being considered for the role of Johnny. We guess they’re trying to keep it in the family! First his sister ruined Footloose, and now he’s gunning for Dirty Dancing? Destroying movie classics, one family at a time.
What do you think about the idea of a franchise reboot? Would you watch a Swayzeless DD?
