Jonathan, who’s known for his work on Long Shot and 50/50, was already attached to the project as a producer. He also co-write the screenplay with Elizabeth Chomko.

The sequel is slated to go into production later this year and will likely be released in 2024. International sales will launch in Cannes later this month.

“While the original Dirty Dancing has always been one of my favorite films, I never imagined I would direct the sequel,” Jonathan said in a statement. “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.”
