There’s a Grease prequel coming called Summer Loving

1 min read

I’m not a big fan of musicals, but sadly that doesn’t mean I can escape them. One such musical which has been forced into my head due to many people in my life loving it and choosing to watch it on a regular basis is that of Grease. Even if you weren’t old enough to catch it in 1978 when the movie adaptation of the popular Broadway musical first came out (I know I wasn’t), chances are you’ve still heard the ear-worm songs many, many, many times over the years.

One of those annoying songs is called Summer Nights, which in the movie was the time when the rebellious Danny (played by John Travolta) and respectable Australian transfer student Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) get to reminisce with their friends about their holiday romance completely unaware that they are now in the same school together. A song that is relevant, because one of the lyrics referenced in the song, “Summer Loving”, is also going to be the title of a new Grease prequel which Paramount will produce.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Paramount is looking to revive the Grease brand with a prequel. The new film will aim to recount the very first meeting between Danny and Sandy in reference to the above song and show the love story of how it all started. Not that anyone was interested to know in the first place because it was a lot more fun watching them face the social pressures of school together than the typical boy meets girl scenario that has been told countless times over.

It’s clear Paramount believes people want to revisit the 50s (the original story is set in 1958) and that if you can get some new young, good looking stars to star while creating another set of annoying songs, that people will come. And they’re probably right.

    I love musicals. Shush you. Probably my 3rd favourite movie genre.

    Saying that, nothing about this says “watch me” yet. Need to see more details.

      Agreed. Grease was one of those movies of the time. A remake might receive a good reception nowadays, but it will definitely be a gamble. There are not much in the way of musicals nowadays, considering how absolutely horrific so much music sounds today. The younger generation have a thing for “beats”, definitely not tunes or lyrics!!!

    Sounds like a parody porno, or even a serious porno.

    Point is it sounds like a porno

    Make a prequel about Rizzo, you cowards. She was the most interesting thing about Grease in the first place.
