Confirmed: Jennifer Gray does “Dirty Dancing” -Sequel – and it should be “romantic” and “nostalgic”!

Just a few weeks ago we reported on the many pieces of evidence that indicate that Jennifer Gray is working on a dance film that is already known as “Dirty Dancing 2”. Now one thing is certain: it really is a sequel!

As Lionsgate boss John Feltenheimer confirmed, the secret project that his studio is developing with “Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Gray is really a sequel to the cult dance film. After the official successor “Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights” from 2004 has little to do with the original despite the mini-appearance of Patrick Swayze, who died in 2009, it should now be the “real” sequel, a true “Dirty Dancing 2 “, give.

Feltenheimer has already announced that the new film will losmovies “exactly the kind of romantic, nostalgic film that the fans of the franchise have been waiting for.”

Baby in the 1990s

Much is not yet known about the new, still untitled dance film (despite the existing film we will continue to call it “Dirty Dancing 2”). From the previous information we only know that the film is set around 30 years after “Dirty Dancing” in the 1990s and Jennifer Gray can be seen again as Frances “Baby” Houseman. The actress will also take on the role of executive producer.

In addition, some people responsible for the project are now known: Director Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies”, “Long Shot”) is responsible together with his production partner Gillian Bohrer. It is not yet known whether he will also direct. The script was written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis, who have two very different projects in their joint résumé so far: the teen heartbreak story “Drei steps zu dir” and the horror film “Lloronas Fluch”.

It is not yet known when this new “Dirty Dancing 2” will be released.
