Gurinder Chadha, the director who taunted us all with Bride and Prejudice, has ramped up the evil a notch by announcing that she's doing not one, but two movies based on Larry Hagman TV shows:
British director Gurinder Chadha announced Friday that she would direct John Travolta and Jennifer Lopez in a big-screen version of 80s TV show "Dallas." The "Bend it Like Beckham" director said she had signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct the film, which will star Travolta as villainous oil magnate J.R. Ewing and Lopez as his wife Sue Ellen...
Chadha, who gave Jane Austen a Bollywood twist in last year's "Bride and Prejudice," is also involved with adapting another TV hit, 60s sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie." She said that film "is still in the pipeline, but there is still some way to go on the script."
Larry, please, intervene and save your legacy. And maybe Linda Gray should lodge a formal anti-J-Lo protest while we're at it.
