Veteran actor Larry Hagman is thrilled the big screen version of I Dream Of Jeannie is finally going into production after years of false starts. The Dallas actor played MAJOR ANTHONY NELSON in the popular 1960s TV series, alongside actress Barbara Eden. He says, "They've been talking about doing this movie for 20 years. "Finally it looks like it's going to get going." According Hagman, the big screen version will feature actress Kate Hudson playing Jeannie and Jimmy Fallon as her "master". The veteran actor is not sure whether the original stars will make cameo appearances in the new film: "I don't know how we could make a cameo. Nobody's seen a script yet." He adds, "The casting seems good, so I'm all for it."
