One of the greatest movies of all time is coming to ABC and Abigail Breslin is going to star in it.
Breslin will star as BABY in the 1987 hit, “Dirty Dancing” TV movie coming to ABC.
According to Variety, the TV adaptation of the hit film has been in the works for a year now, but a male lead has not been selected.
“Exec producers are Allison Shearmur (“The Hunger Games” franchise; “Cinderella”) and Eleanor Bergstein, who wrote the screenplay for the original movie. Producers are Adam Anders and Judy Cairo (“Crazy Heart”). It will be choreographed by “Hamilton’s” Andy Blankenbuehler with music by Adam Anders and Peer Astrom (“Glee”). “Gosford Park’s” Stephen Altman will serve as production designer.”
So far “Dirty Dancing” fans are not very happy with the news of a remake, but maybe once it all comes together, we will all be surprised?
