The new version will be directed by Kenny Ortega, the man responsible for both Michael Jackson's This Is It and High School Musical.
It's hard to imagine anyone replacing Patrick Swayze. That was the role that launched him to stardom, made a nation of women fall in love with him and land him on the cover of People Magazine as The Sexiest Man Alive.
Who do you think would be great in that role? Zac Efron is pretty enough and showed us his dancing chops in High School Musical. Mario Lopez won on Dancing With The Stars, although I'm not sure if he could carry the film. Channing Tatum danced in Step Up and did some decent acting in a few other films. Gilles Marini was also on Dancing with the Stars and is certainly hot enough.
What about the female lead, previously played by Jennifer Gray? Maybe Vanessa Hudgens or Natalie Portman? Who do YOU see starring in this film? Will you go see a remake of Dirty Dancing? Did you love the original?
