'Grease' Is Getting a Prequel Film About Summer Nights

'Grease' Is Getting a Prequel Film About Summer Nights

Another user quipped: "If I'm going by the lyrics to Summer Lovin, a Grease prequel is basically just a porno".

It's called Summer Loving, and the silver lining is that a very qualified writer is on script duties: John August, who has previously penned Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

It is not clear whether the new movie will be a musical and there have been no cast announcements.

For those unfamiliar with Grease, let us fill you in on the story.


The film will expand on the holiday romance enjoyed by high school students Danny and Sandy, alluded to in the song Summer Nights, which recounts the tendresse with contrasting sentimentality (from Sandy) and frankness (from Danny).

A prequel to the 1978 classic Grease is in the works, but it's not yet clear whether it will be a musical.

Since Danny and Sandy's love stories were told from different perspectives after summer, fans are ecstatic that they won't be left in the dark for long. Apparently, Danny's recollection of "the fling" is "more raunchy", while Sandy remembers their meet cute being "more innocent", according to the report. Sandy transferred to Rydell High in the States, not knowing that Danny Zuko was wandering through the halls and dreaming about seeing her again. As of now, it's unknown who will portray each character. Back in 2016, Fox aired a live version of "Grease" starring Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens which won five Emmys. "We did something life-changing, making that film".
