The story originally appeared on the US movie site imdb.com and was picked up by several British newspaper sites yesterday, including the Evening Standard and the Daily Mail.
However a spokesman for the Swansea-born star has moved to scotch the rumours, saying: "There is absolutely no truth at all to that rumour. Ms Zeta-Jones is not starring in the movie version of Dallas.
The Dallas movie is to be directed by Robert Luketic, of Legally Blonde fame. Screenwriter Robert Harling, who wrote Steel Magnolias and First Wives Club, is said to be working on condensing the original 350 hour-long episodes into a two-hour film. The soap, which ran between 1978 and 1991, chronicled the backstabbing and bedhopping adventures of a family of oil millionaires.
Other actors who have been linked with this Southfork revival include Burt Reynolds as JR, Melanie Griffith as his long-suffering wife Sue Ellen and Brad Pitt as Pamela's shower-loving husband Bobby. Pamela Ewing was played by Victoria Principal in the original series.
