Is Gurinder Chadha hoping for a Dallas come back?
In a recent interview with the London newspaper ‘Metro’ Gurinder hinted the movie may well be resurrected.
So will she finally shoot JR after all? ‘It’s Hollywood, you know?’ Chadha shrugs before popping a cake confidently into her mouth. ‘Projects get resurrected and I like to think good scripts never say die. ‘ More power to her elbow, say I – though if I were JR, I’d be quaking in my cowboy boots.
Dallas the movie was announced several years ago as a remake of the original five part pilot from 1978, a drama based on the Enron scandal with JR Ewing at the helm played by John Travolta. Recently it was rumored to be a comedy take on the Ewing family.
So what happened to the Dallas movie?
“The studio did some research and they found out that if you were under 38 you didn’t know the show Dallas,” laughs Chadha. “So of course they worried about a younger audience not coming to see it, because people didn’t know the show. And of course that made me feel really old because I do remember it.”
Gurinder’s latest movie Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging is in UK cinemas from Friday, Jul 25
