Lindsay Lohan has been hotly-tipped to play Lucy Ewing Cooper in a movie version of 'Dallas'.
The stunning teen is currently the favourite to play the blonde bombshell - nicknamed the 'Poison Dwarf' - in the remake of the classic 80s soap.
Charlene Tilton, who made the role famous, said: "I think it's a great choice."
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez is being lined up to play alcoholic Sue Ellen in the movie - about rich oil tycoons and their troubled families.
'Pulp Fiction' star John Travolta is reportedly in talks to star as her billionaire husband JR Ewing, originally played by Larry Hagman.
'Legally Blonde' star Luke Wilson and Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine are also expected to have parts.
Director Robert Zemeckis claims some of Hollywood's biggest stars are desperate to win roles in the remake.
He said: "There are gifts being exchanged and people scratching each other's eyes out."
Shooting is expected to start in October.
