'Dirty Dancing' Reboot With Abigail Breslin Shares First Teaser
Still, 30 years later, nobody puts Baby in a corner.
Dirty Dancing is back now 30 years after the iconic dance film hit the big screen, thanks to a remake coming to ABC that shared its first promo on Monday (April 24).
Abigail Breslin stars in the reboot as Jennifer Grey's beloved Baby Houseman character, with newcomer Colt Prattes taking on the dancing bad boy Johnny Castle, originally played by Patrick Swayze.
The 30 second tease shows some familiar glimpses into the three-hour remake, as we see Baby's first introduction to Johnny at a racy backroom party, their dance lessons on the long and lift rehearsal in the water and, of course, the final dance competition.
The new film costars Debra Messing (Marjorie Houseman), Bruce Greenwood (Dr. Jake Houseman), Nicole Scherzinger (Penny Rivera), Sarah Hyland (Lisa Houseman), Tony Roberts (Max Kellerman) and more. It will also include updated versions of songs from the original film's soundtrack, including "Time of My Life," "Love Man," "Do You Love Me," "Hungry Eyes" and Swayze's own "She's Like the Wind."
