Seems like they can't think of anything new these days!
TNT is negotiating deals with Dallas actors Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray to star in a revamp of the classic TV show.
The veterans will join a cast of younger Ewings to continue the show.
"I read the script and liked it. A lot of it is exposition to explain what's happened since we went off in the '90s. Miss Ellie's passed on and such. But they haven't made a firm offer yet. We're kicking ideas around, but nothing's been struck in gold. We'll see how it goes; I'm still ambivalent about it."
But Patrick is much more optimistic!
"I read the script and was extremely impressed with it. I'd managed to read the scripts for the feature films Fox was planning a few years ago and they were atrocious. Just awful, so I didn't know what to expect from TNT. But this read like one of the better episodes at the height of Dallas. It's a perfect sequel to continuing the Dallas tradition.
It's [The plot] carried by John Ross, Christopher [Bobby and Pam's son] and their group, but they put us in enough to carry our old fans with us. J.R. responds to business deals" just as he always did, J.R. and Bobby's acrimonious relationship continues, and "Bobby's married happily — and not to Pamela."
Inneresting. Would U watch the Dallas revamp?!
