Abigail Breslin to Star in 'Dirty Dancing' Musical Remake!
The 19-year-old Scream Queens actress will play Jennifer Grey‘s iconic role of Baby in the three hour event that will air on ABC.
In case you’re unfamiliar, the original film takes place at a summer holiday camp as Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). The role of Johnny has not yet been announced.
The announcement comes on the heels of competitor network NBC’s huge success with The Wiz Live. FOX also has Grease Live coming next month.
