They are making a third Dirty Dancing movie, obviously. Since the second one did so well. It’s barely a day goes by where you don’t read another essay from Manohla Dargis about the ways in which Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights changed the film landscape forever. There is actually a funny story about Dirty Dancing Havana Nights, which is that the host of NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, Peter Sagal, wrote a serious screenplay about a love story set in the Cuban revolution and that was eventually purchased, rewritten, and transformed into Dirty Dancing Havana Nights. That’s a funny thing! Oh, Hollywood. You are aces. Anyway, Dirty Dancing 3, from Deadline Hollywood:
The new film is a celebration of one of the most beloved movies of all time. Paying tribute to the emotional excitement of first love, the thrills and complexity of sexual awakening, the soul stirring power of dance, and the classic tale of teenage Baby’s forbidden romance with Johnny Castle, the remake will incorporate classic songs from the 1960s, hits from the original film and brand new compositions.
“Amazingly it has been almost 25 years since the original film was released, but the fans remain legion, and engaged more than ever with a brand that is special and vital to them. We believe that the timing couldn’t be better to modernize this story on the big screen, and we are proud to have Kenny Ortega at the helm.” said Drake.
Kenny Ortega, of course, choreographed the original Dirty Dancing. But of course, you already knew that. “Uh, hi, Gabe, if I needed you to tell me who Kenny Ortega is then I probably should have my Dance Movie Choreographer Super Fan Club Power Member Membership Card taken away from me hahaha THANKS.” In any case, we can all agree that the timing couldn’t be better (?) to modernize this story on the big screen, and that it will definitely be a celebration of emotional excitement and the thrill of teen sex. BUT WHAT WILL THE TAGLINE BE?

You’re welcome to suggest your own taglines for Dirty Dancing 3 although I think we can all agree that it will probably end up being one of my suggestions because they’re so good. “And the Oscar for best tagline goes to…ME!”
