HOLLYWOOD – On again off again couple of the moment Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be teaming up one more time for the remake of beloved dance musical Dirty Dancing to be directed by Francis Ford Coppola. Pattinson plays dance instructor Johnny Castle, originally played by Patrick Swayze, who teaches young Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman (Stewart, taking over from Jennifer Grey) the ways of love and sex fuelled dancing.
Francis Ford Coppola – director of such masterpieces as The Godfather, The Conversation and Apocalypse Now – said that he was looking forward to being back in the game.
I won’t deny it, life has been tough recently. It’s like everything I touch turns to shit. And then the business is very cruel. (Sobbing) I’m not very proud of myself. I went to some dark places. I even made a film with Val Kilmer. Val goddam Kilmer!
Rob.son and K.art – as they prefer to be known – said in perfect synchronicity that they were looking forward to working together again.
Every time we appear apart in a film, bad things happen, whether it’s Water for Elephants or On the Road. We are hoping to recapture the magic of Twilight, but with you know, dancing. Dirty dancing. Like the name of the film.
So who are you going to be rooting for Team Castle or Team Baby? Leave a comment and tell us what you think. And be sure and follower us on Twitter, or you know wherever.
Dirtier Dancing will be released in 2015.
