Staying alive, staying alive, staying alive, ah ah ah ah - that is the words on the lips of anyone who's anyone in Hollywood right now. The word is out that John Travolta is to film the sequel to his 1978 hit dance movie Saturday Night Fever.
Travolta, who is now 58 and weighs the same amount in stone, was approached by his old friend Steven Spielberg about a sequel to his 1978 hit.
Spielberg announced excitedly that the film would contain "much of the same stuff" - dancing, romance, flared trousers and for old times sake, a scene with Samuel L Jackson about hamburgers. To add a bit of spice to the mix Flawless from Britain's Got Talent would be dancing in the background in every disco scene and Barbara Streisand would be singing back-up on all the disco tunes. The Bee Gees had not been invited to the reunion, stating a "conflict of interest." It is rumoured that the Bee Gees are now in an old age home, but no-one is really sure.
The storyline will see Travolta going back to his roots by returning to the old nightclub he frequented back in his Fever days. Thankfully for Travolta, the nightclub has now been turned into a fast food joint and his only requirement is to sit at a table stuffing his face and eating greasy food. That's where the scene with Samuel L Jackson takes place. All dancing will occur in the background under a dim disco light. As for romance, there'll be plenty of that too - as soon as Spielberg can find an actress happy to pretend that Travolta is still young, sexy and slim.
Saturday Night Fevers and Cold Sweats will hit cinemas all across the world next Easter. Rumours have it, it will be as bit a hit as its predecessor.
