The “Dirty Dancing” sequel will be set in the ’90s, with JENNIFER GREY’s “Baby” returning to Kellerman’s.  PATRICK SWAYZE will have some kind of presence in the film, and talks are underway with his estate to make that happen.

 

A list of actors who quit or were fired over salary demands includes Terrence Howard and Hugo Weaving from the Marvel movies, Suzanne Somers from “Three’s Company”, and Jonah Hill from “The Batman”.
