More 'Dirty Dancing'?

Will Ricky Martin show Natalie Portman how to dirty dance? Hollywood is gearing up for a Latin-flavored sequel to 1987's "Dirty Dancing," according to Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. Puerto Rican singer Martin and "Star Wars" teen queen (Queen Amidala, that is) Portman are said to be in talks to star in the film. Set in South Beach, Fla., "Dirty Dancing 2" sounds to be more hip than the original, which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey and was set at a resort in New York's Catskills. Mirimax's Harvey Weinstein told Variety, " 'Dirty Dancing' is a cultural touchstone and phenomenal property." Go, mambo.
