Lionsgate has pulled the remake Dirty Dancing from its 2013 release slate due to casting issues.
We reported back in November that the studio was set to release the remake on July 26, 2013. Now the drama won't hit theaters until at least 2014. Kenny Ortega is still attached to direct, working from a screenplay by Glee creator Brad Falchuk. We reported in April that he was reworking an original draft by Maria Maggenti. This remake is also said to use classic songs from the 1960s, songs from the original movie, and contemporary tracks.
