Watch out, J.R.: 'Dallas' is officially back.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that TNT and producer Warner Horizon are working on a remake of the '80s staple, with 'Cane''s Cynthia Cidre on tap to write it.

Cidre created and served as executive producer on 'Cane,' the story of a Cuban-American family and its successful Florida-based rum and sugar cane business.
