Looks like Lionsgate has put baby in the corner.
The company is putting its remake of 1980s classic Dirty Dancing on hold.
High School Musical director Kenny Ortega, who was a choreographer for the original, was in the director’s seat for the movie, which had a release date of July 26, 2013 penciled in.
The project was gearing to cast up and was conducting screen tests. Lionsgate insiders say the postponing of the movie was to allow for more time for casting.
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey starred in the original.
