Chadha Heads to ‘Dallas’


Variety is reporting that Bend It Like Beckham helmer Gurinder Chadha is set to replace Robert Luketic for 20th Century Fox’s feature adaptation of the hit television show Dallas. Apparently Luketic dropped off the project for creative reasons.

The film stars John Travolta, Jennifer Lopez, Luke Wilson and Shirley MacLaine.

The film is an updated take on the classic ’80s soap opera (1978-1991) that 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.
