Do You Think Miley Cyrus And Justin Timberlake Should Star In The 'Dirty Dancing' Remake?

Mon, August 15, 2011 7:26pm EDT by 22 Comments

HollywoodLife.com spoke to a source who revealed whether or not Miley would join the remake of the popular film! Do you want to see her as Baby?

Rumors have been running rampant about who will play the leads in a new remake of Dirty Dancing. Names reportedly tossed around have included Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Lea Michele for Baby and Justin Timberlake and Derek Hough for Johnny Castle. We spoke to a source close to Miley about the possibility of her appearing in remake of the movie that put Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on the map.

“Miley loves Kenny Ortega,” the insider told HollywoodLife.com. Kenny was the choreographer for the original and is participating in this remake. “I wouldn’t say that it would be impossible for her to join, but she’ll be cautious about it. If it was an amazing script, then maybe she’d participate but right now she knows people have mixed feelings about the movie. It’s too early in the process to really know if she’d seriously consider it, the film is still in its infancy.”

What do you guys think of Miley doing this movie? Would you like to see her as Baby? Bookkeepers in the UK seem to think Justin Timberlake will get the part of Johnny Castle, what do you think of Miley and JT as a pair? Sound off below and cast the movie with your favorite actors!

miley cyrus is perfect for the role to play ‘baby’ in the remake of dirty dancing with JT.
Miley Cyrus would put every effort into the role and she is super talented and deserves it, come on people give miley a break- this would be a smash hit and would just surprise everyone.
Miley and JT in the remake of dirty dancing is a great combination!

Like Kayla said…

DANCING MOVIE!!!!!

No to Miley, to Demi AND to Lea – come on … they defently can NOT be Baby anyway!
and no to Justin and Derek..
..
It would be nice to get a lil close to the real movie (e.g. Footlose remake – the look similar what makes it easier for every generation…)

I would love not to see actors who are already “stars” ..

Okay, wait a minute… Isn’t this a dancing movie? Why is everyone attatched singers? Lea Michele can barely dance, Demi I don’t think I’ve ever seen dance, and Miley well she’d have to work super hard cause it’s not the type of dancing we see on her videos… The main scene was a bit dirty but ballroom yah know.

There should NOT be a remake of this movie! Bad enough they’ve ruined Footloose. Why can’t HWood come up with something original instead of remaking old movies? What happened to creativity and imagination?

I can remember back the first time I ever watched the movie :
Dirty Dancing that Jennifer Grey & Patrick Swayze that was such a amazing movie. especially when she finally did that jump at the end.
It was with my mom, my kids & bunch of their friends. I can’t believe u ars trying to do a remake of the movie, I just hope its not Miley Cyrus or
Justin Timberlake. I hope u do some more. searching for whoever u are trying to play Jennifer Grey & Patrick Swayze because those 2 sure don’t fit the part. If that’s all u got than please just don’t worry about doing a remake . Because in my opinion no one will do that movie justice other than the original people. So its your guys choice out there, I am 55’years old I go back like I said in the beginning if u going to do a remake please find someone that’s going to make the part. justice ,:not just pick someone just to be picking.or leave it alone.
