'Grease' Prequel 'Summer Loving' Gearing Up at Paramount with Writer John August

The Grease saga is living up to the famed lyrics: "Tell me more, tell me more".

The studio has tapped screenwriter John August (Big Fish) to pen the prequel script, his publicist Bebe Lerner confirmed. Just when you thought there were no mysteries to be unravelled left in film stories, along comes Paramount to dissuade you of that notion, with plans to make a Grease prequel called Summer Loving.

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

The prequel is said to be about the summer Danny and Sandy met, taking its inspiration from the classic song "Summer Nights".

Pacquiao's last fight was a dominant unanimous decision victory over American Adrien Broner in January . What Pacquiao will be doing in RIZIN 15 will be announced when Sakikabara returns to Japan.

The movie, from Paramount Players, Temple Hill, and Picturestart, is poised to follow leading players Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson (Dumbrowski in the stage show) during their "Summer Nights" fling, as detailed from both perspectives early on. After each of them recount to their friends their steamy summer romance, they reunite, but it doesn't initially go as perfectly as either of them imagined.

The obsession with prequels continues.

Some news that will give Grease fans chills and get them multiplying: moviegoers could soon see another chapter of Danny and Sandy's love story. In 2016, Fox staged a live (!) performance of the musical starring Aaron Tveit and Julianne Hough in the two main roles. "We did something life-changing, making that film".
