It's confirmed: another Grease movie is finally, FINALLY happening!

Aladdin and Big Fish screenwriter John August will be writing the prequel to Paramount's 1978 musical; the flick will be titled Summer Loving.

According to Hollywood Reporter, "Grease starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as high school teens from opposite worlds — Travolta’s Danny Zuko a rough-and-tumble greaser, Newton-John’s Sandy Olsson a virginal good-girl from Australia — who in the end come together "like rama lama lama."

However, in the early part of the movie, in a he-said/she-said manner, Zuko and Olsson both recount to their friends a summer fling they had via the song 'Summer Nights'. Zuko’s tale is more graphic, while Olsson’s is much innocent and wistful."

The prequel's story will supposedly tackle that fateful meeting.
