Adaptations

New Dallas Series to Duel

Fans of Dallas will soon have more than their fill: A film version and a new television series are in the works. Twentieth-Century Fox is still working on a big-screen adaptation of the '80s soap-style series, but Warner Brothers is reportedly working faster at series remake for TNT. The show would allegedly focus on the next generation of Ewings—John Ross (son of J.R. and Sue Ellen) and Christopher (the adopted son of Bobby and Pam). There’s no saying if this remake will float like 90210 or flounder like Melrose Place, but original cast members, including Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, and Patrick Duffy, have reportedly been approached to join the television show.
