80’s Soap Dynasty Movie In The Works

Shoulder pads and cat fights! Today marks the 30 year anniversary of Dynasty‘s television premiere, and the creators of the highly successful nighttime soap are marking the occasion with the promise of bringing the show to the big screen. Richard and Esther Shapiro told E! the movie will be a prequel to the series, set in the early 1960’s – back when young Blake Carrington was embroiled in a hot love affair with a certain Alexis Colby. Yowza!

The script hasn’t found a studio home yet, but we’re sure it will. The only thing we’re worried about is — can there be an actress alive that can do justice to the quintessential power-hungry queen bitch Alexis? Joan Collins’ shoes are big ones to fill, indeed.
