Ewing's role, that of Bobby Ewing's glamorous but sweet-natured wife, was made famous by Victoria Principal in the U.S. series that ran from 1978 to 1987, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
Other stars may take different roles in the upcoming film. Brad Pitt is said to be in the running to play Bobby Ewing, the role that made Patrick Duffy's name on the show.
