[Sigh] Here’s a Dallas, the Movie, Update

This site is reporting that John Travolta said the script he saw had Dallas based in Dubai (or Saudi Arabia, as a commentor pointed out). Why can’t someone buy the rights to the movie, put ’em in a crate, and then bury that crate in a stack of 100,000 crates in a forgotten warehouse somewhere. ‘Cause, much like in Indiana Jones, if that movie ever gets made, mark my words: Faces will melt.

    Hey, Adam, Dubai isn’t in Saudi Arabia! Which is where that site says the movie will be set. You knew that. Right?
    Point taken on the rest.

    My suggestion? Take whatever money would have been wasted on John Travolta’s salary, give half of it to someone who can actually act in that role, and give the other half to Alibaster K. Abthernabther to write a screenplay that would undoubtedly be a far smarter and funnier send-up of the show and the city.
