Unexpected! Here’s who’ll play Baby in the Dirty Dancing remake


Dirty Dancing is a total classic and never fails to give us all the feels whenever we watch it. 

Which is a LOT. 

So when we heard that they were doing a US TV remake, we were a little sceptical even though we knew we would totally be watching it. 

We had a few actresses in our heads when we thought of a modern day Baby, but we can't say that this young actress sprung to mind.  

American actress Abigail Breslin has been cast in the role and you may remember her as the adorable kid in Little Miss Sunshine. 

The former child star and Scream Queens actress is now 19 and has won the coveted role in the hotly anticipated remake. 

ABC is preparing to make a three hour adaptation of the original classic and with the original screenwriter on board, we have hopes that it won't be absolutely terrible. 

There is still no word on who is going to take Patrick Swayze's role in the reboot and well, let's just say whoever he is, he has VERY big shoes to fill. 

There has been no release date for the movie as of yet but we have no doubts that Abigail will kill in the role.

Besides, we already know she has the moves.
