Susan Lucci does Super Soap Weekend, and other "Dallas" tidbits

Our gal Susan Lucci, that luscious but sinister Hillary Taylor / Sheila Foley of the latter part of the "Dallas" run, is out and about again in a couple weeks. She'll appear at the Super Soap Weekend and Breakfast at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

"For those of you that haven't had a chance to attend in previous years," her official website says, "this is an excellent opportunity to spend time with Susan, and other Chat Club Members that have been attending this event for years."

The Super Soap Weekend is November 10-11, 2007, and the Susan Lucci Chat Club Breakfast is Friday, November 9, 2007. The location is the Brown Derby Restaurant - Disney MGM Studios @ Walt Disney World Resort. Tickets are $95 (with the proceeds going to Little Flower Children's Services of New York) but -- alas -- they're sold out!

Elsewhere in the "Dallas" world, meanwhile, there is an update on the long-awaited and ever-changing big-screen remake film. James Brolin and Diane Ladd are the latest names to be attached to the project, according to They'll apparently play Jock and Miss Ellie (we're sure you know which is which). Though it's an improvement over Shirley MacLaine as Ellie, it's certainly not an improvement over the remarkable Sam Elliott as Jock! But Brolin could be sufficiently gruffy, we suppose ...
