The iconic movie, Urban Cowboy is back in the saddle again. This time it is getting a 2015 makeover from Fox, and fans of the original are beyond excited.
According to Fox Television CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman, who discussed the possibility, "There will be elements from the film that are there, but it's definitely current day," said Newman. The show would be loosely based on the 1980 film starring John Travolta and Debra Winger, and shooting on the pilot could begin as soon as September 2015.
The film was originally set in Houston, Texas, at the famous Gilley's bar and music venue. Shooting for the television series will take place in Austin, Texas - staying true to the Lonestar state!
There is no word on who will be cast in leading roles for the project, but it is sure to be good. As this story develops, rest assured we will keep you posted!
