Who's In Dallas Film?

There's nothing like being taken back to your youth with memories of old TV favourites.

Remember Dallas anyone? Bad eighties make-up and serious amounts of shoulder pads? But who are the top Hollywood stars rumoured to be starring in a new film version?

Catherine Zeta-Jones was clearly a fan of the TV series, after reports have surfaced that she's signed up to star in a big screen adaptation.

According to IMDB, Catherine is set to play Pamela Ewing in the film version of the Texan soap... with rumours that Brad Pitt may be co-starring - although producers have refused to confirm his involvement.

(However, Cath and Brad have recently starred together in Ocean's Twelve - and provided plenty of on-screen chemistry.)

Screenwriter Robert Harling said of the Dallas project: "The story starts with Bobby and Pam meeting and getting married.

"It is reinventing the Ewing family as if they exist in 2006 when the movie comes out. We want to make a big, all-star, flashy, go-for-it version of the TV series."

If Brad does sign up to the film, he won't find it too tricky to conjure up images of the hit series, after he himself appeared in a few episodes of Dallas in 1988, as Randy - boyfriend of Charlotte Wade (Shalane McCall).

Victoria Principal played the original Pam Ewing with Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing in the long-running soap.
