Could Baby be coming out the corner? Actress Jennifer Grey, who starred alongside Patrick Swayze in the original Dirty Dancing film, is said to be collaborating with Lionsgate on an untitled dance movie in which she will star and executive produce, Deadline reported this week.

Lionsgate holds distribution rights to the original films, which include the 2004 prequel, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights.

Grey played teenager Baby in the 1987 box office smash. Her character fell for handsome Catskills resort dance instructor, Johnny Castle (Swayze).

The movie racked up £171 million at the global box office and won an Oscar and Golden Globe for the memorable original song, (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Frank Previte, John DeNicola and Donald Markowitz.

In recent years, Grey, the daughter of actor Joel Grey, has starred in the Amazon comedy Red Oaks and won the 11th season of Dancing With the Stars.
