505′s secured the rights to Grease. As in, the movie. With Rizzo. Undated Wii and DS games are on the way.

This happened yesterday. We must have been drunk, or something.

“Paramount Digital Entertainment is pleased to be working with 505 Games to develop Grease,” said Paramount’s John Kavanagh.

“Grease is the ideal opportunity to reach a broad gaming audience who love to sing, dance and have fun with a party-style game.”

You can insert any one of 500 billion quotes from the film here as a “joke”. Then read the PR after the break.
