'Dirty Dancing' and 'Cruel Intentions' TV Reboots Cast Actors for Lead Role


Colt Prattes is joining 'Dirty Dancing' remake as Johnny Castle, while Taylor John Smith will play Sebastian Valmont's son Bash Casey.

The upcoming TV reboots for "Dirty Dancing" and "Cruel Intentions" have cast actors for lead role. Colt Prattes will star as Johnny Castle, originally played by Patrick Swayze in the original movie. Taylor John Smith, meanwhile, will play Sebastian Valmont's son Bash Casey.

Colt is joining previously announced cast members for the "Dirty Dancing" remake including Abigail Breslin and Debra Messing. The film's plot focuses on Baby, who is on vacation at a Catskills resort with her family when she falls for the camp's dance teacher.

Allison Shearmur and Eleanor Bergstein, who wrote the original film screenplay, are executive producing the series reboot. Jessica Sharzer will write the adaptation, Wayne Blair will direct, and Andy Blankenbuehler will choreograph.

"Cruel Intentions", meanwhile, will follow Bash Casey (Taylor) who embarks on his own path into the world of sex, money, power, and corruption after discovering his father's journal. It will also follow Kathryn Merteuil, Sebastian's stepsister played by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the film, as she attempts to take over Valmont International and Bash.

"Cruel Intentions" reboot will be directed and exec-produced by Roger Kumble, the original writer and director of "Cruel Intentions". Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross, who wrote the script, are exec producing along with Neil Moritz and Pavun Shetty of Original Film.

Taylor posted on Instagram a screenshot of the casting news, captioning it, "SO INCREDIBLY BLESSED! Extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity, and can't wait to continue to tell this phenomenal story as 'Bash'| 02-23-2016 [5:28pm] #cruelintentions #nbc."
