Nobody puts baby in the corner! …Again!

Posted on 19 August 2009 by Quaid

Remakes remakes remakes.  You know how they make me sooo happy, because they’re all so amazing.  You know…like Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes.

DirtyDancingBut every time I get down on the general idea of remakes, someone reminds me of the fact that John Carpenter’s The Thing was, indeed, a remake and destroys my argument.

Still, I doubt that Lionsgate’s newly announced remake of the Patrick Swayze teen dance flick Dirty Dancing will ever be put into the “masterpiece” category.  It might, however, go toe-to-toe with the Footloose remake in a contest to see which can add the hippest and most annoying spin to an ’80′s boogie classic.

Julia Dahl of Uptown Girls fame has been tapped to write the script.  No production date or director has been set.
