After 30 years, "Dirty Dancing" is back, but on the small screen. The 1987 film has been rebooted by ABC and now, the stars of the show are giving a glimpse of their onset photos on Instagram.
Abigail Breslin and Colt Prattes are going to take the famous roles of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze as Baby Houseman and Johnny Castle. The 20-year-old "Zombieland" actress shared an intimate photo together with his co-actor.
"Casually dancing around a fireplace, as one does," she captioned the snap. In another photo, she shared the same scene but with a different position. "AND just casually dippin' around a fireplace. As one also does. #sneakpeek #dirtydancing," she wrote.

Prattes, on the other hand, also shared a photo on the same social media platform along with Breslin, CNN reported. He described it as the first picture from the set of the "Dirty Dancing" movie adding that is his favorite moment from the film.
Moreover, Debra Messing, who plays the role of Baby's mother Marjorie Houseman, too, shared a photo collage of the show's scenes. The montage featured other cast members like Sarah Hyland (Lisa Houseman), who also showed her character as the female protagonist's sister, and Bruce Greenwood (Dr. Jake Houseman). Lastly, Nicole Scherzinger (Penny Rivera) and Billy Dee Williams (Tito) are also seen in the snap.
Meanwhile, the classic "Dirty Dancing" film has set a mark that will detach itself from being a common romantic movie, according to Screen Rant. By adding a different kind of passionate choreography, it told a "cross-economic love story" of the rich girl Baby who fell in love with the dance instructor Johnny.
The making of a reboot has been swirling since 2009, but it was canceled. Fortunately, in 2015, ABC gave permission for the remake to proceed with a three-hour musical special promising that it won't just be a copy-paste of the original. The show is set to be aired on May 24.
