Director Robert Luketic is hoping to strike oil with an all-star cast, for the big screen adaptation of 1980's television series Dallas. Hollywood actors Jennifer Lopez, John Travolta, Luke Wilson and Shirley MacLaine are expected to be donning the lead roles for the upcoming picture.

J.Lo, who previously worked with Luketic on Monster-in-Law, would play Sue Ellen Ewing, the alcoholic and adulterous wife of JR Ewing, who was originally played by Linda Gray in the primetime soap, which aired from 1978-91.
