World Entertainment News Network reports Dallas stars Linda Gray and Larry Hagman have confirmed they’ve been approached to reprise their Sue Ellen and J.R. Ewing characters for a remake of the classic 1980s soap.
TV execs at Warner Bros. are reportedly considering bringing back Dallas and focusing the new show on the TV couple’s son, John Ross, and his cousin, Christopher, the adoptive son of J.R.’s brother Bobby and sister-in-law Pamela.
But Gray admits she’s yet to see a script, but isn’t comfortable about playing a supporting grandmother role.
“I’m not going to wear little boring dresses with pearls around my neck. At this age, Sue Ellen should be a powerhouse role model,” she told TV Guide.
Hagman told the magazine he’s interested in reviving his TV oil boss role, but adds, “How much we talkin’?”
