Apparently There's A 'Grease' Prequel In The Works!

A prequel to Grease is on the way.

According to reports Paramount Pictures are creating a new movie, 40 years after the original in 1978.

Summer Loving is set to be based around the story of how Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson first met.

The movie has been inspired by the musical Summer Nights based on the hit movie.

Reports suggest John August, who is currently involved in the upcoming live action Disney remake of Aladdin, will direct the feature. August also worked with Tim Burton on Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Grease was the biggest box office hit in 1978 when it was released and to this day remains one of the highest grossing musicals of all time.

The biggest question surrounding the potential prequel is who is going to be cast in place of John Travolta and Olivia Newton John!
