The CEO of film company Lionsgate has confirmed that the rumours about a Dirty Dancing sequel is true and that original Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey will be starring in and producing the film.

CEO John Feltheimer told Deadline the movie will be very much like the beloved 1987 original, which raked in almost US$220 million (£167.4 million) at the box office.

"It will be exactly the kind of romantic, nostalgic movie that the franchise’s fans have been waiting for and that have made it the biggest-selling library title in the company’s history,"

A second movie was first rumoured back in July, with Feltheimer admitting it was 'one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood' as he made the announcement.

How exciting!
