Travolta, Wilson, Lopez and MacLaine Circling ‘Dallas’


How much do I care about a feature film adaptation of the ’80s television series “Dallas”? Not – one – single – bit. Nevertheless, Dallas is being made and Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox, along with director Robert Luketic, are rounding up some big names to make up the cast.

Luketic has offered his Monster-in-Law star Jennifer Lopez the part of Sue Ellen Ewing, Luke Wilson is negotiating to play Bobby Ewing, John Travolta has an offer to star as J.R. Ewing and Shirley MacLaine is down for the part of Miss Ellie Ewing.

There are no deals in place as of yet, but Variety goes on to say that “most of the pacts are likely to happen”. Apparently securing someone for the part of J.R. was the first order of business in ironing out the cast. Other names that were in the mix for that role included Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner.

There is no official synopsis as of yet, but Variety recaps the show synopsis saying with the following:

The infamous sudser chronicled the exploits of wealthy Texas oil millionaires and their shady business dealings and dysfunctional families. The series centered on the Ewing family, led by patriarch Jack Ewing, who started family corporation Ewing Oil.

Am I the only one that has no interest in seeing this film?
