Fresh out her c0-starring role in the hit Fox horror comedy Scream Queens, Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) will star in the upcoming TV musical remake of Dirty Dancing, expected to shoot in the same Lake Lure, North Carolina area where the original was filmed.
The new Dirty Dancing musical event will air on the ABC television network, though it will be pre-recorded and not a live performance, as some recent network TV musicals have been.
The original Dirty Dancing was released in 1987 starring Jennifer Grey in the role of “Baby” and the late Patrick Swayze.
While Breslin will take over Grey’s role, the part of Swayze’s “Johnny” has not yet been cast.
