Song Of The Week - John Ttavolta & Olivia Newton John - Summer Nights
The dreaded Michelle Pfeiffer/Maxwell Caulfield sequel couldn’t diminish its power, but it looks like Paramount are once again determined to undermine the mighty beauty that is the word. Resolute to tell us more, tell us more, the mountain-esque studio have announced they have a prequel to Grease in development. Summer Loving will essentially expand on the song Summer Nights and fill in the gaps of when Danny and Sandy either went strolling and drank lemonade, or got friendly down in the sand, whatever.
John August, writer of Tim Burton’s undervalued Big Fish is working on the script, and at this point no one else is attached. Who will be the new Travolta and Newton John – and whether it will kill their career stone dead (Maxwell Caulfield - please call home!) – remains to be seen.
But oh, those summer nights - Hit "Play" already. Damn!
