Grease is the word over at HBO Max: The streaming service has handed a series order to Grease: Rydell High, a musical spinoff of the iconic movie, TVLine has learned. "Inspired by" the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, Grease: Rydell High will also be set in the 1950s, when "the Pink Ladies […]
John Travolta appeared in a stage version but played a very different role, and Rydell High was based on a real school. Jim Jacobs, one of the show’s creators, has the low-down.
For “Gotti,” which opens today, the “Pulp Fiction” star steps into the Dapper Don’s shoes and other assorted clothing. Yahoo Entertainment spoke with Travolta about remaking himself in Gotti's image, and one of his favorite memories from “Grease.”
Released on June 16, 1978, Grease helped establish John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as bona fide superstars and went on to become the highest-grossing movie musical of all time (a title the film held until last year, when it was passed by Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast). Adapted from the hit Broadway musical of the same name, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, the Grease we know and love almost didn’t happen in the first place. Once the film rights became available, Hollywood came calling.
While Travolta was preparing to shoot the big sequence, his running mates were adrift on a sailboat in the Pacific. Here's the bonkers true story.
Although she's known for films like "Bring It On" and "Bad Boys 2," when it comes to the movie that changed her life, the actress reveals a surprising choice on "Off Script With Jamie Foxx."

On Saturday, more than 2 million people turned out for the worldwide women’s march in protest of the actions of President Donald Trump — and some of them drew inspiration from their favorite movies.
Nope, not true, at least according to the guy who literally wrote the book on the subject: Grease co-creator Jim Jacobs. TMZ got in touch with Jacobs, who wrote the original version of the musical (along with Warren Casey), to get to the truth of the matter. Jacobs is pretty sure whoever came up with the theory that Sandy actually drowned, and that the entire movie is her waterlogged synapses short-circuiting before she dies and ascends to heaven in a flying car, was on acid.
In retrospect, The roles of Danny and Sandy in Grease, that 1978 movie-musical classic, seem tailor-made for John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. For the role of Danny, the tough-talking greaser played by Travolta, producers first approached Henry Winkler, who was then playing Fonzie on the hit TV comedy Happy Days. Winkler passed, fearing that he’d be typecast as ‘50s bad-boys forever (though as it turned out, he would play The Fonz well into the 1980s).
