Jennifer Grey is coming back as Frances “Baby” Houseman for the Dirty Dancing sequel. The movie will take place in the 1990s, with Baby returning to the Catskills resort Kellerman’s. The original took place in the early ’60s.
It’ll be a coming-of-age romance about a young woman, but Baby’s own journey will “intertwine” with that story.
We’ll also probably see more familiar faces than just Jennifer’s. They’re looking to bring back as many people from the original as is, quote, “appropriate.”
Baby’s dance partner Johnny will be a part of the story, but obviously, Patrick Swayze can’t come back. The producers are in talks with his estate about whatever it is they’re planning.
As for music, the soundtrack will include songs from the original such as “Hungry Eyes,” as well as ’90s hip-hop. And possibly even era-appropriate artists like Alanis Morissette and Liz Phair.
