Dallas is Falling A Part!
The feature film version of "Dallas" is completely unraveling. The movie is getting a complete overhaul and the entire cast has been let go except for John Travolta. Robert Harling's script is currently being tweaked and current director, Gurinder Chadha, will make the decision if she's staying or not when the new cast is assembled.
Jennifer Lopez had originally been attached to play Sue Ellen, but left before shooting was to begin. Meg Ryan was currently in talks to take over, but talks have ended. Katie Cassidy, Luke Wilson and Shirley MacLaine are also out of the picture.
These changes have been made to cut the $65 million budget. They are recasting with cheaper actors and hope to begin filming this January.
Cheaper actors? Isn't Meg Ryan pretty budget? Shit, they are going to end up with Tara Reid, Suzanne Somers and Chyna Doll. Actually, that would be kind of hot.
