Jennifer Grey, the actress who starred opposite Patrick Swayze in romantic drama Dirty Dancing, will appear in a sequel to the classic movie, the studio behind the film announced on Thursday.
The 1987 flick grossed $218 million in global box office and won an Oscar for best original song '(I've Had) The Time of My Life.'
Grey also will serve as an executive producer on the film, which will be directed by Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine, said Jon Feltheimer, chief executive of Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.
“It will be exactly the kind of romantic nostalgic movie that the franchise’s fans have been waiting for,” Feltheimer said on a call with industry analysts.
The company did not provide any details about the movie’s plot or when it would be released.
