“50/50” director Jonathan Levine will direct Lionsgate’s “Dirty Dancing” sequel starring Jennifer Grey. According to the filmmaker, the film will be set in the ’90s and include songs from the original as well as hip-hop songs from the ’90s.

Like the original, the sequel will be a coming-of-age romance centered on the experience of a young woman at the summer camp, but Baby’s own journey will intertwine with this to create a multi-layered narrative.

“While the original Dirty Dancing has always been one of my favorite films, I never imagined I would direct the sequel,” said Levine. “Through co-writing it, I fell in love with the characters (new and old), the world of 1990s Catskills New York, and the music, which will range from songs from the original movie to ‘90s hip-hop. I can’t wait to collaborate with Jennifer to bring this beautiful story of summer and romance and dancing to a generation of new fans. And to the longtime ones, I promise we will not ruin your childhood. We will tackle the assignment with sophistication, ambition and, above all, love.”

Other characters from the original are also expected to return, says Levine.

The film is expected to go into production this year and release in 2024.
