Jennifer Grey has signed on to reprise her role of Baby Houseman in a new sequel to Dirty Dancing.
Jonathan Levine has signed on to direct the film which is set in the 1990s.
It is due to be released in 2024.
“While the original Dirty Dancing has always been one of my favourite films, I never imagined I would direct the sequel,” Levine said in a statement.
“Through co-writing it, I fell in love with the characters (new and old), the world of 1990s Catskills New York, and the music, which will range from songs from the original movie to ‘90s hip-hop.
He added: “I can’t wait to collaborate with Jennifer to bring this beautiful story of summer and romance and dancing to a generation of new fans. And to the longtime ones, I promise we will not ruin your childhood. We will tackle the assignment with sophistication, ambition, and, above all, love.”
