J.Lo Bails on the "Dallas" Flick

by | August 3, 2006 | Comments

They’ve still got John Travolta as J.R. Ewing, but it looks like Jennifer Lopez has quit the big-screen adaptation of "Dallas." This just might be the most trivial thing I’ve ever reported on, but hey, it’s movie news.

From DarkHorizons: "Jennifer Lopez has abruptly quit the much-anticipated big screen remake of classic 1970s show ‘Dallas’ reports The IMDb. Reps for the actress, set to play Sue Ellen — the alcoholic wife of oil magnate JR Ewing (John Travolta), confirmed the news to the American publication Star.

Earlier this year, "Legally Blonde" director Robert Luketic quit the project citing ‘creative differences’ and was reportedly unhappy with casting choices. "Bend It Like Beckham" director Gurinder Chadha is now attached to direct the film. Shirley MacLaine is in talks to star as Ewing family matriarch Miss Ellie and Luke Wilson is rumored to be taking on the role of Bobby Ewing."
