Sunset on the Sunshine State?

Dallas director Gurinder Chadha repeats something I heard last night at the AMC NorthPark 15 opening: The big-screen adaptation of the inexplicably beloved TV series may not be shot in Florida after all. That doesn't mean it's coming here--that's still unlikely, given the state legislature's unwillingness to deal with funding Texas Senate Bill 1142. Now, Louisiana offers the main competition; seems 20th Century Fox is more interested in shooting there than Florida, which is the main choice for star (and casting director?!) John Travolta. --Robert Wilonsky
