Attention Dirty Dancing fans! A TV movie remake of the famous film is underway in the US, but alas original cast member, Jennifer Grey, has rejected a role.
Jennifer shot to international fame in the 1987 film in which she starred as 'Baby', a young woman propelled into adulthood by a steamy summer romance with a bad boy named 'Johnny' - played by the dreamy Patrick Swayze.
Now, the film is getting a reboot for television audiences, but Jennifer will not be joining the impressive cast.
"I was asked to do something on that show and I was flattered because I always want to be asked because it's nice to want to be included. But for me, it would be sacrosanct for me to do it because it didn't feel appropriate to me," she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"It feels like if you're going to do your own thing, do your own thing. I wouldn't say [what role was offered] but I will tell you, it wasn't Baby!"

In fact, the three-hour telemovie already has a star locked in: Abigail Breslin.
Abigail, 20, became a hit at the age of 10 as the adorable star of Little Miss Sunshine. She has since gone on to star in films like My Sister's Keeper and tv series, Scream Queens.

The male lead in the reboot is to be played by unknown actor and professional dancer, Colt Prattes.
Original Dirty Dancing star, Patrick Swayze, sadly passed away in 2009.
In her interview with THR, Jennifer praised Patrick for his dancing and his fearlessness.
"He smelled really good, his skin was really nice. He was really strong and he was very protective and his heart was very much in it," she said.
"It was our second movie we'd done together within a short time — we did Red Dawn first and then Dirty Dancing. He was a great dancer and he was fearless. His fearlessness with my fearfulness — like his lack of Jewishness and my super Jewishness — together was like a marriage where you have two opposites. He'd do anything and I'd be scared to do anything."
The Dirty Dancing TV movie will air on ABC US later this year. An Australian release date has not been announced.
