Paramount Studios are developing a prequel to the fan favorite movie Greaseentitled Summer LovingThe film will apparently look more into the lives of Danny and Sandy before the events of Rydell High.

Grease was originally released in 1978 and starred Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta as the two young in love high schoolers. The film also spawned various classics such as Summer Nights, Grease Lightning and plenty more. It even got a sequel in 1982 which starred Michelle Pfeiffer and if you never got the chance to see it, don’t bother! It was truly awful!

No casting decisions for the film have yet to be made, but Big Fish writer, John August is on board, which has been confirmed by his publicist. August also has two film credits to his name coming out this year in the form of Aladdin and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

No release date has been attached to Summer Loving, and like most films in development, there is a small chance that it might not even be made. Fingers crossed though!
