Dirty Dancing has been a classic in my eyes ever since my best friend became obsessed with it and introduced it to me when we were in 5th grade, about 13 years after it came out. I actually never watched the made for TV sequels, or the 2004 Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, since they didn't involve the original casts, so they didn't feel like true sequels to me. That's why, although surprised, I'm excited that Jennifer Grey will be returning to the role 33 years after originally playing the part! Well the announcement comes 33 years after the original, not sure when the release date will actually be. There's no word on what the plot of this new film will be, or how they will address the lack of Johnny since Patrick Swayze passed away in 2009, but hopefully it lives up to the original!
