New Nerve Trailer Teases A Daring Movie

20 June 2016 3:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve had a lengthy run of Young Adult fiction adaptations, and almost all of them have fallen into one of two categories: ‘young adult bucks the system, finds themselves, and saves the world’ (The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Divergent, The Fifth Wave), or ‘young adult finds tragic love’ (If I Stay, The Fault In Our Stars, The Spectacular Now, any movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel). But, this year brings us Nerve, which is potentially something quite different from the usual Young Adult adaptations that flow relentlessly into movie theatres.

Based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Jeanne Ryan, this film takes a large swipe at the current culture of reality shows, YouTube stars and gaming. Nerve is the name of a fictional online game that allows anonymous viewers to manipulate the actions of players for their own entertainment. High school senior Vee (Emma Roberts »

The cast of ABC's Dirty Dancing, a three-hour TV remake, is starting to come together, now that Abigail Breslin and Colt Prattes have been set as the two leads. Deadline reports today that Katey Sagal has signed on to join the cast, with production set to begin this week in North Carolina. The actress is playing Vivian Pressman, a role originally portrayed by Miranda Garrison in the 1987 hit movie.

Vivian Pressman is described as a "bungalow bunny," a former beauty queen who spends her free time trying to seduce the younger male workers at the Kellerman resort, such as Colt Prattes' Johnny Castle. Vivian is also said to be "fabulously wealthy" and recently divorced, who takes matters into her own hands when Johnny leaves her for Baby (Abigail Breslin).

Billy Dee Williams has joined the cast of the three-hour telemovie revival of ABC's "Dirty Dancing" in the role of the band leader Tito. Charles Coles played the part in the original 1987 Patrick Swayze-Jennifer Grey starrer.

Like the original, the new take revolves around Baby (Abigail Breslin), an innocent young woman who vacations with her affluent parents at an early-1960s Catskill Mountains resort. She soon gets swept off her feet by Johnny (Colt Prattes), a handsome, working-class dance instructor.

Tito is the charismatic, lively, longtime band leader for the resort who must acquiesce to the changing times. Jessica Sharzer is writing and executive producing the project which also stars Debra Messing as Baby's mother, Sarah Hyland as her sister, and Nicole Scherzinger as Penny.

ABC have revealed the actor to play the iconic Patrick Swayze role of Johnny Castle in their upcoming Dirty Dancing TV special. Colt Prattes will take the part, playing opposite Abigail Breslin, who will play Baby Houseman.

Actor and dancer Prattes will play Castle, leader of the working-class entertainment staff at an early 1960s Catskill Mountains, so reports The Wrap. Debra Messing will play the role of Majorie Houseman, mother of Baby.

Allison Shearmur and the original film’s screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein, who also adapted the film for the stage, will executive produce. Jessica Sharzer adapted the film for television, and Wayne Blair will direct with “Hamilton’s” Andy Blankenbuehler choreographing.

'Dirty Dancing' TV Remake Gets Dancer Colt Prattes in Patrick Swayze Role

23 February 2016 4:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Abigail Breslin already locked in to play Baby, ABC's Dirty Dancing has finally found its Johnny Castle. The Wrap reports that actor/dancer Colt Prattes has landed the iconic role in the Dirty Dancing TV special. The site also reports that Debra Messing has come aboard to portray Marjorie Housman, Baby's mother.

ABC's Dirty Dancing is said to be a three-hour musical special, but it won't be airing live like popular specials such as NBC's The Wiz Live! and Fox's Grease: Live. Instead, it will be filmed prior to broadcast, much like Fox's upcoming The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event. Our report from last month revealed that ABC will likely give this special the green light once Johnny Castle was cast, so we may get an official announcement soon, now that Colt Prattes has come aboard.

The original movie was set in the 1960s in a Catskill Mountain resort, »

Debra Messing has joined the cast of ABC's Dirty Dancing remake, which stars older ray of sunshine Abigail Breslin as Frances "Baby" Houseman.
