Dirty Dancing Remake

on Aug 10, 2011 @ 10:28 am

Dirty Dancing remake was recently announced to be in the works and as a huge fan of the 80's, I am super mad! 
I recently saw a preview for the Footloose remake as well and they've totally changed it, also tainting the movie for me! I am die-hard 80's fan though so maybe others are looking forward to these remakes? I hear the music is pretty good at least.

Back to Dirty Dancing though- here are some early guesses for the leads:
(via Jezebel.com
Justin Timberlake, Chris Hemsworth and Derek Hough (we're big Chris Hemsworth and his abs fans over at ChickAdvisor so maybe it won't be sooo bad)
and to play Baby: Lea Michele, Emma Stone and Emma Roberts... ok I see potential but still not convinced?

Are you?

Really? Emma Stone? Emma Roberts? on Aug 10, 2011 @ 11:06 am

I vote Lea Michele. She's the most..."baby" out of them
I was hoping for a better selection between the new Patrick Swayze though...
Dirty Dancing Remake is a good idea though! Did you know Footloose has a remake too? I'm excited :).

Chris Hemsworth and Lea Michele! Lea got the talent and Chris got the looks. Perfecto!

But why? on Aug 11, 2011 @ 03:29 pm

I'm with Alexandra. I adore the classics and I just don't think it's necessary to mess with the classics. Like, Dirty Dancing and Footloose aren't even that old. If I still remember the movies they're remaking, it's too soon. Remake like Gone with the Wind or something. That I could get into (mostly because I can't get through the original).

Sequel on Jan 23, 2012 @ 11:21 am

It is very rare that a sequel is better then the original. But that won't stop me from seek g it. Thanks the for info.

No need for a remake no need! on Feb 22, 2012 @ 02:47 am

All I can say is there are some things that should not be remade ... The original will always be my fav... No one can fill Patrick Swayze shoes !

Booooooooooooo! on Apr 30, 2012 @ 02:48 pm

Why mess with a good thing! First Footloose, now Dirty Dancing! I'll be really pissed if they attempt Grease one day!

Do you know when it'll be released? on May 01, 2012 @ 12:54 am

I can't see anyone replacing Patrick Swayze,he was my preteen heart throb! I still watch the original and feel why mess with a good thing.

Just hate it when they try to do remakes of classic movies.

One of my favorite is Can't Buy Me Love with Patrick Dempsey. They did a remake couple years ago and it totally blowed!

Musicals on May 01, 2012 @ 07:47 am

I love seeing musicals of movies like Dirty Dancing, but there's definitely no need for remaking these films. Those remakes will never be classics and people will forget about them as soon as they leave the box office!

not Emma Roberts... on Jul 07, 2012 @ 12:13 am

All I hope is that they do not choose Emma Roberts as Baby or I'm going to very disappointed.
