'Grease' Prequel Movie Is Moving Forward, Director is Hired!

Summer Lovin’, a prequel to the movie Grease, is in the works at Paramount Pictures and the movie is making big moves right now!

Brett Haley was just hired to direct the film. This will be his first movie at a major studio after directing indie movies like Hearts Beat Loud and I’ll See You in My Dreams, according to Deadline.

Grease was a 1978 musical movie that starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The prequel will reportedly follow what happened what Danny and Sandy met over the summer.

Grease remains one of the most successful movie musicals of all time and it has been a big hit on Broadway as well. A live production of the musical was recently staged by Fox starring Aaron Tveit and Julianne Hough in the lead roles.
