More details are now emerging about the now confirmed ‘Dirty Dancing’ sequel starring Jennifer Grey.
According to ‘Variety’, ‘Long Shot’ and ‘50/50’ director Jonathan Levine has been brought aboard to direct the upcoming film.
Jonathan said “Through co-writing it, I fell in love with the characters (new and old), the world of 1990s Catskills New York, and the music, which will range from songs from the original movie to ‘90s hip-hop. I can’t wait to collaborate with Jennifer to bring this beautiful story of summer and romance and dancing to a generation of new fans.”
The sequel also has a likely release in 2024, with production to be started later this year.
