Back to the Eighties
Written by: Megan Rellahan
The Ewing family comes back from the dead and hopefully, so will Boy George.
Hollywood says, “Move over comic books, hello to the old-school sitcoms.” First to transform from eighties’ sitcom to the big screen was the "Dukes of Hazard" and next up on Hollywood’s remake list is “Dallas.” Running from 1978 to 1987, the “Dallas” series revolved around a wealthy Texas family who owned an oil company accompanied by many emotional, mental and spiritual problems. A great show with tons of drama!
Hollywood screenwriter, Robert Harling, is the hero who has brought the Ewing family back to life. According to Harling, “We want to make a big, all-star, flashy, go-for-it version of the TV series. It is reinventing the Ewing family as if they exist in 2006.”
Catherine Zeta Jones and Brad Pitt are among the many fantastic actors heavily considering attaching themselves to the project. As Pam Ewing and Bobby Ewing, Jones and Pitt would make an outstanding couple, as Burt Reynolds is the “Dallas” production team’s number one choice for J.R. Ewing. As for his wife, Sue Ellen, Melanie Griffith is on the top of that list.
Speaking of the eighties, Boy George has denied that the cocaine found in his apartment belongs to him – (who wouldn’t). Regardless, at his arraignment, George was charged with cocaine possession. A New York DJ and Broadway actor, the media has stated that his career may be in serious jeopardy.
Don’t worry, Boy George! They said the same thing about Robert Downey Junior and look at him!
