Aug 04, 2006 by Ian Evans

Jennifer Lopez has left the cast of the movie version of the 80s hit series Dallas.

Lopez’s publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, confirmed the exit, but declined to shed light on the reasons. Lopez would have played Sue Ellen Ewing opposite John Travolta’s oil tycoon J.R. Ewing.

Director Robert Luketic, who directed J. Lo in Monster-in-Law, has also dropped out and has been replaced by Bend It Like Beckham’s Gurinder Chadha.
