Reunion hopes for fading stars John Travolta and Kirstie Alley have come crashing down!
The super Scientologists’ secret scheme to star together in a sequel to their hit late-’80s and early-’90s comedies Look Who’s Talking, Look Who’s Talking Too and Look Who’s Talking Now has been dashed by studio plans to reboot the series with all-new stars in an ethnically diverse cast!
“Kirstie and John are devastated,” an insider snitched. “They put a lot of work into the idea of doing a sequel after 25 years, and they thought they were close to making a deal!”
The former Cheers hottie, 68, and the saggy 65-year-old Saturday Night Fever stud, who did not respond to our request for comment, wanted to play grandparents to their grown son Mikey’s talking baby!
But filmmakers decided to court a new audience with a much younger — and hipper — cast, according to sources.
Neither Kirstie nor John has had a hit in years, and insiders said they hoped the callback to their past triumphs would relaunch their invisible careers.
Fat Actress Kirstie told pals that she and John were both holding out hope for cameo parts in the new flick — but insiders said that no one has approached either of them yet.
