John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John to Reunite on the Big Screen?

On the heels of their recently released Christmas album, 'This Christmas', John Travolta has confirmed that he will be reuniting with 'Grease' co-star Olivia Newton John in the recording studio. At a G'Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala event yesterday, Travolta revealed, ""The thing is, we're going to try to add a couple of songs every year to that CD and then maybe do a music video each year so, at The End of it all, we'll have a whole [collection]."

The actor went on to share that the duo may be back together again on the big screen. "Maybe connected to the Christmas idea...maybe a Christmas movie or maybe a Christmas special or something," he stated.

The couple's 'Grease' duet, "You're the One That I Want, was the best-selling duet in pop music history. Travolta described their recent Christmas album, released in November, "a true labor of love made specifically for the giving season." Proceeds from the album were donated equally to the actor's respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.

One of the highlights of the album was the original song, "I Think You Might Like It," a sequel to John and Olivia's Grease smash. The tune was written by the original song's writer/producer John Farrar. "John Farrar was just as hard on me now as he was then," joked Travolta about recording the new single. "We went for perfection on it." "It was really fun to do that," commented Newton John. "If it wasn't for that song, we wouldn't be here talking about it 30 years later."
