London: Admirers of ‘Dallas’ would be delighted to know that the television series is making a comeback to the small screen, as a plan to make it into a major movie could not reach concretion.
John Travolta and Jennifer Lopez were attached to the film project, but now the entire idea has been scrapped - and instead, ‘Dallas’ will be heading back to TV, reports the Daily Express.
The chiefs at America`s TNT have reportedly warmed to the pilot episodes of the updated ‘Dallas’ and now plan to air them for fans.
Executive producer Cynthia Cidre, who tasted success as the writer of acclaimed film ‘The Mambo Kings’, plans to bring back the hit series of 80s, which featured Ewings of Southfork in the oil-rich saga of family scandal and betrayals.
Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Victoria Principal and Linda Gray starred in the original series.
However, there is no confirmation whether original cast will be returning for the revamp.
