Rumours are abound of a remake of the classic 1970’s movie musical Grease (what do you mean you’ve never heard of it, have you been living in another Universe ???) and hot-tipped to play the leading lady role as Sandy is none other than Country starlet Taylor Swift.
The original film launched it lead characters John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John to mega-stardom, and in fact it’s Newton-John that’s suggesting Swift would be the ideal lady to reprise her role.
Speaking to CNN’s Showbiz TonightTV programme, Olivia said she would be sort-of all right if the powers that be chose to remake the legendary musical but only if Taylor Swift could play the role of Sandy. Well, either Taylor or Olivia’s own flesh and blood.
“I’m sure they’ll try [a remake], and I think it would probably do well because people would be curious. But there’s something about the originals… that people still want to see. But I’m sure they’ll do it, and they’ll do an updated version, and it’ll be great. Lately, I’ve thought Taylor Swift could probably [play Sandy], because she’s very talented. And my daughter, I’ve always thought she could.”
So, with Taylor Swift in the leading role as Sandy, who would you suggest to replace John Travolta as Danny Zuko ???
