Travolta May Star In New Grease Sequel

John Travolta is considering starring in a second sequel to the 1978 musical Grease, syndicated columnist Liz Smith reported today (Monday), citing no sources. Smith said that in the new film, the Travolta character, Danny Zuko, would be married to Sandy Olsen, the character played by Olivia Newton-John in the original, and he'd be working as a used-car salesman, still belting out songs from the '70s and '80s. Smith said that if Newton-John is not available to reprise her role, Travolta would like his wife, Kelly Preston, to take it. The first sequel, Grease 2, released in 1982, starred Maxwell Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer in the lead roles.
