STAR WARS SPIN-OFF TO BE BASED ON GREASE

HOLLYWOOD – Disney confirmed this morning that one of the proposed spin-off’s of the Stars Wars franchise will be based on the popular 50’s musicalGrease.

Jim Jacobs who wrote the original script has been working with Guillermo Del Toro on the project and he exclusively told The Studio Exec that they have a 1st draft and are currently working on a 2nd.

It’s going to be a pretty faithful remake of the original Grease” said a chatty Jacobs.

Apprentice Sith Lord Danny Zucko lives on the Death Star. He falls for uptight Jedi in training Sandy Olsen during summer vacation but when he returns and finds Sandy has joined his school. He’s torn between his love for a rebel spy and his loyalty to the empire. To cut a long story short at the end Sandy puts on a pair of black hot pants and decides to join the dark side.

Jacobs went on to say that the hardest part of the process has been adapting the songs.

The music is what makes Grease and the lyrics are so well known we didn’t want to mess with them; but we have made a few subtle changes so there’s tracks like Jedi School Drop-out, Blue Moons, Tears on my Tie-Fighter, Hopelessly Devoted to the Emperor and You’re the Darth that I want.

The cast has yet to be confirmed but both John Travolta and Olivia Newton John are said to be interested in making a cameo appearance.

“It beats them doing another f*cking Christmas Album,” said their irate agent.

  1. Love it! (hated Grease but this could redeem it). Presume Sandy dresses up in full black leather Darth Vader outfit for the final song?
