Dirty Dancing has fascinated several generations and some scenes, such as that of dance between Baby and Johnny with the soundtrack of Time of my Life, have become iconic. “When Patrick was still alive he always said, ‘I already have a second generation of fans.’ He was approached by young women who weren’t even born when the movie came out “, says Lisa Niemi, wife of Patrick Swayze, excited by the affection that fans have shown her husband over the years.

What Patrick Swayze thought of the Dirty Dancing sequel

In 2004 it came out Dirty Dancing 2 but, despite the same title, it had little to do with the original. The protagonists were different (Diego Luna and Romola Garai), as well as the development of history, which almost lost all reference to its predecessor. Recently the news was spread that in the 2024 will be the “real” sequel of the iconic film, which will resume the events 30 years after the first. Whatever the continuation of the story, Lisa Niemi has made it known that Patrick Swayze has always been against a second film:

Johnny Depp’s attorneys accuse Amber Heard of lying about career abuse

He wouldn’t do it again, […] Patrick had a high standard and he wasn’t going to do it just for the money. I think you can never absolutely duplicate something. But if they do, I hope he is the absolute best and has the character of him.
