You wouldn’t have thought of and yet, Grease might well be back in cinemas soon. It is in any case what announces the site of The Hollywood Reporter. According to information from the magazine – often well-informed – Paramount have decided to put in project a prequel of the film was released in 1978 and worn by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Titled Summer Loving (in reference to one of the cult songs of the film), it should tell of the meeting between Danny and Sandy, during the summer, before their return to school.
For the moment, we do not know much about the project except that the scenario will be written by John August, who has already written the scripts for Big Fish,Charlie and the Chocolate factory but also Charlie and his funny ladies and her suite, or the new Aladdin , directed by Guy Ritchie. Remains to be seen whether the project will come to fruition and what actors will be chosen to succeed Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.
