Paramount is revving up some greased lightning. The studio’s division Paramount Players has put into development a Grease prequel, titled Summer Loving, and has tapped John August, the veteran writer behind such films as Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to pen the script.

Temple Hill, the prolific banner whose recent output ranges from Love, Simon, the Maze Runner movies and First Man, is producing along with Picturestart, the company run by Lionsgate executive-turned-producer Erik Feig.

Grease is the classic 1978 musical that 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 is said to tackle that fateful meeting.
