Word on the street is that tween sensations Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus are in talks to play opposite one another in a new remake of Grease. However, they are apparently only in talks with each other.
While there has been word of a Grease remake, Bieber has nominated himself to fill John Travolta’s dancing shoes.
“Justin Bieber believes heâ€™s the ideal person to [play] Danny in a remake of the 1978 movie musical Grease. In fact, heâ€™s already got an idea of who he wants to star as Dannyâ€™s Aussie love interest, Sandy â€” a role originated by singer/actress Olivia Newton-John. ‘I would go for Miley Cyrus without hesitation. She can sing, dance, and act'” (Pop Crunch).
Producers and directors have had some great success reviving movies and theatrical releases. Hairspray was one of the greatest remakes ever, however the cast had a lot to do with it. The success of Grease: The Remake will depend heavily on the cast, and Bieber and Cyrus shouldn’t be the first choices.
Zac Efron would make a fantastic Danny. Who would make a good Sandy?
