Dallas Directionless
Luketic leaves movie adaptation

31 March 2006  |  Written by   |  Source: Variety

Robert Luketic, who had been given the job of directing 20th Century Fox’s Dallas movie, has woken up in the shower to discover it was all a dream. For unspecified reasons, the Monster-In-Law helmer will no longer be tackling the tale of JR Ewing and co.

No word on whether this means the cast – including the likes of John Travolta and Jennifer Lopez (who joined mostly to reunite with her Monster director) – will also find new projects. But it has already prompted the company to detach Dallas from its original US release date of 10 November and leave it dangling in release limbo. Watch this space for news of when it might actually come out.

RE: Wha?
Bin Travolta and Jennifer Lopez   Get Todd Haynes in to direct and write.   Set it about 20 years before the series.   Cast the following - Philip Seymour Hoffman as JR Diane Keaton as Miss Ellie Vince Vaughn as Cliff Barnes Michael Douglas as 'Digger' Barnes   That means you can do away with the likes of Bobby and Pam and concentrate on double dealing and Diggers affair with Miss Ellie, it would be great.

Wha?
Can someone PLEASE tell me who this film is being aimed towards? I know that we're going through a period of nostalgia and revisiting old telly favourites, but, come on, people, we are scraping the bottom of a deep barrel with this one,surely? Just don't think this idea has enough legs to make it profitable. No matter who is cast as the feudin' Ewings, you're still in a dodgy market. More
