new role. Miramax Pictures is reportedly wooing Madonna to
co-star with Goldie Hawn in "Chicago." Entertainment Weekly
reports the film would be a big-screen staging of the veteran
Broadway musical. Madonna earned the Golden Globe for her
performance in "Evita."

its new network, NBC. The initial airing of the show brought
a third more viewers than the show's premier on ABC in
||Larry Hagman is taking a walk down memory lane by revisiting
his old TV roles. Entertainment Weekly reports that Hagman
initially had to pass on the movie update of "I Dream of
Jeannie" because of a scheduling conflict. He'd already
agreed to do the "Dallas" reunion. Now, "Dallas" is gone but
"I Dream of Jeannie" has been rescheduled. Hagman says he'll
do it, if he likes the script and if the money is right.
"Die Hard" is a hit again, but this time as a game. Fox
Interactive has shipped a half million units of its new "Die
Hard Trilogy" game for the Sony Playstation Game System.
Future releases for Sega Saturn and Windows '95 are expected.
