wife Kelly Preston
is reportedly set to join her husband in the movie remake
of eighties soap opera Dallas
. Travolta is said to have asked Preston to take on the part of Sue Ellen, long-suffering wife of his character J.R. Ewing, since Jennifer Lopez
ditched the role last year.
A Hollywood source tells British newspaper Daily Express
, "John has made it clear that he thinks Kelly would be perfect for the role of Sue Ellen and it's now thought that she will end up with the part. It would certainly make interesting viewing as their real-life marriage obviously couldn't be any more different from that of J.R. and his wife."
Dallas the movie is scheduled to start filming later this year and will also star Owen Wilson
as Bobby Ewing.
