Yes, Hollywood Still Hates Your Childhood: Little Miss Sunshine Is Starring In A TV Remake Of “Dirty Dancing”
One year after Dirty Dancing came out, Hollywood gave us Dirty Dancing the TV series and it flopped, because nobody wanted it.
In 2004, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights was released and even though it had Diego Luna’s thrusting dick in it, it flopped, because nobody wanted it.
In 2006, WE shat up a Dirty Dancing reality show hosted by JLo’s second husband Cris Judd and yes, I watched it, but it still flopped, because nobody wanted it.
Hollywood is still trying it and isn’t done with butchering Dirty Dancing. Deadline says that ABC is putting together a three-hour remake of Dirty Dancing starring Abigail Breslin (from Little Miss Sunshine and Scream Queens) as Baby. The evil, diabolical whores in Hollywood need to be put in the corner for this shit:
The project, from Lionsgate TV, is expected to get a formal green light contingent on one more casting.
ABC’s production will not be live like Fox’s staging of Grease but in the vein of that network’s planned filmed remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Patrick Swayze’s ghost should knock the cellphone out of Derek Hough’s hand right now, because you just know that ABC is going to call him to play Johnny Castle in this blasphemous remake.
Hollywood re-charges their evil powers by taking a messy diarrhea on all of our childhoods, so I get why they’re remaking Dirty Dancing. But Abigail Breslin as Baby makes zero sense. Jennifer Grey’s chopped-off nose skin would make a better Baby. Because of the way she does herself up now, Abigail Breslin looks more like she’s getting ready to play Courtney Love in a low-budget Lifetime biopic and I’d much rather see that than another Dirty Dancing movie.
And in case you haven’t seen this before or blocked it out, here’s the intro of the 1988 Dirty Dancing TV show starring Jan from The Office and David Cassidy’s half-brother.
