Remember that we will find there Jennifer Grayalmost 40 years later, in the skin of Baby…
Production will start at the end of the year and Dirty Dancing 2 and will be led by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, Seduce me if you can!).
Little is known concretely about this “next chapter”, but Levine hinted that the sequel will include music from the original film, as well as ’90s hip-hop, which could well be the film’s theme. Patrick Swayze, who died in 2009, could be integrated one way or another. The producers are in talks with the rights holders of the actor. No other cast member has been announced.
