The actress is desperately embarrassed about her performance in the ill-fated Grease 2 and wants to erase all memory of it by making a new version of the original film.

Pfeiffer is thrilled by reports Simpson is being touted to play prom queen Sandy Dumbrowski--and has her eye on the role of the comical Principal McGee.

She says, "It's a great idea, and I hear they would like to get Jessica Simpson for the role of Sandy. She would be good."

Pfeiffer adds of her own experience, "I hated that film (Grease 2) with a vengeance and could not believe how bad it was. At the time, was young and didn't know better... I hear it's a cult movie now."
