Chada to direct Dallas
Chada, who rose to fame directing hits like Bend It Like Beckham and Bride And Prejudice, will be charged with extracting the best performances out of a stellar cast that includes John Travolta (Grease, Pulp Fiction, Face Off) as Texan tycoon J R Ewing.
Other stars who'll be dousing themselves in hairspray, donning Stetsons and generally padding up eighties style will include Jennifer Lopez (Anaconda, Gigli, Monster In Law) and Luke Wilson (Old School, Legally Blonde, The Royal Tenenbaums).
This won't be the first television remake Chada has attempted either as she is also directing the movie adaptation of 60's TV hit I Dream Of Jeannie.
