‘Grease’ prequel is in the works at Paramount

According to the messengers of dreams over at Hollywood Reporter, the execs at Paramount have begun working on a prequel to the classic musical ‘Grease’.

If you grew up in the 80’s you were likely, at one time or another, a part of a pop up scene from Grease with your cousin, friends or whoever would let you sing lead.  So being such a part of so many formative years, the idea of resurrecting the team of Sandy and Danny seems like a no brainer.  Is it?

The story is set to explore the faithful summer when Sandy and Danny met and celebrated their “Summer Lovin”.

In the song, Sandy tells of a charming respectful man who swept her off her feet. While Danny describes a much more sorted account of how the two spent their ‘Summer Nights’.

I guess I’m curious. Am I? I can’t decide.  I think maybe I’m not.
