Grease prequel planned to explore Sandy and Danny's early love

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Players has chosen John August, who wrote Big Fish, to write the script for the new film, which is now in development.

Written by Aladdin scribe John August, the upcoming prequel will essentially serve as a Sandy and Danny origin story.

"Grease" is getting a prequel - 41 years after the original movie was released. Set in 1958, the film, a silver-screen take on Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's 1971 musical of the same name, starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as teenage students Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson, respectively. And the movie is staying true to the song "Summer Nights".

It's expected to explain how main characters Sandy and Danny met, expanding on the story told in the famous song Summer Nights from the 1978 film.

A Grease prequel? Tell me more, tell me more. For 40 years, that was enough information about Danny and Sandy's meeting for most viewers.

"They did ask us, I think they approached John and I to do it, and then it didn't happen, and I didn't think it was gonna happen, and then they made it with other people".

The big question, of course, is why does a prequel about their early love life need to exist when Danny and Sandy's early relationship is discussed - and even overtly shown - in the original movie?

She said: "I liked it". The far less popular "Grease 2" followed in 1982, and "Grease: Live" debuted on Fox in 2016, winning five Emmy Awards.
