Who's shooting J.R. Ewing now? Twentieth Century Fox! The film studio is developing a big-screen adaptation of Dallas. "I like the idea of doing it for the 21st century, with a new cast," series creator Dave Jacobs tells Variety. "We've got a new take on it. Before, people would have been interested in who is screwing each other. Now it's the national crimes that are affecting everyone. The conflict is still about family conflicts, but the stakes are higher now. That's the thing that excites me about it." Just promise us you'll give Miss Ellie a decent wardrobe this time around!
