Director Quits ‘Dallas’ Movie

Director Robert Luketic has abruptly quit the big screen remake of the hit 1980s TV show Dallas, because he was unhappy with some of the casting choices.

Among those actors already on board to play members of the Ewing clan are John Travolta as J.R., Jennifer Lopez as Sue Ellen, Luke Wilson as Bobby, and Shirley MacLaine as Miss Ellie.
