Keep an eye on 'Dallas'

Chatter is surfacing again about a movie version of "Dallas." John Travolta remains attached to play J.R., but the tone has changed from drama to spoof comedy. Betty Thomas, who made "The Brady Bunch" movies, is in discussions, reports Variety.

Regency and 20th Century Fox are the studios. If you remember correctly, we previously reported that "Dallas" was looking to split time between the real Dallas and Shreveport. The project fell apart, though.

It will be interesting to see if the project resurfaces. Variety says it is aiming for a January start. Will it come to Shreveport? Don't know yet.

Do you want to see a spoof on Dallas?

And is J.T. perfect for J.R. or what?

When Dallas was on originally, sometimes I thought it was a comedy. But I would be glad to see Dallas as a spoof, just to laugh at all the Texas gags.

Maybe J.R. can be poisoned at a chili cook-off.

There's a brief about this in the most recent edition of "Entertainment Weekly." it affirms the spoof story.
