Jessica Alba will be playing Jeannie in the upcoming film, Hollywood Remake No. 4629845. Wait, I'm sorry, it's actually called I Dream of Jeannie, and it's based on the old TV series starring Barbara Eden (the original Jeannie) and Larry Hagman of Dallas. Jimmy Fallon will fill Hagman's former role, astronaut Anthony Nelson. I'm not keeping my hopes up for this one, though the prospect of seeing Jessica Alba in a genie outfit is alluring. In the meantime, we'll wait for IMDb to update the movie's page, as Kate Hudson, one of the original choices, is still credited as Jeannie.
