After Dirty Dancing popped back up in the Production Weekly, I only scratched my head for a moment wondering if they would ever breathe life into this project. It’s been on hiatus for a while. Over the past few months they have switched out writers and producers and last that was heard was that the project was shut down. But Hunter Ingram over at the Star News got the news that the Lionsgate project had filed for an extension. They had 100 days from approval to do so to be able to use the grant money. It’s still quite a mystery on when production will begin, so I guess we will keep Baby in the corner until it’s time to come out and play, or dance if you will. READ STAR NEWS ARTICLE NOW
I feel there is no point in telling you this bit because, hell, it’s SOLD OUT! Which is great news however. Our NC Indie, Adrenaline, starring John Schneider and quite a few local folks like the fabulous Michael Rosander, is showing at the Lumina Theater at UNCW tomorrow night. If you are one of the lucky ones to get a ticket, have a great night!
