20th Century Fox has joined forces with producer Kate Edelman Johnson to release a film based on The Big Valley, a 1960s series created by Johnson’s father, Louis F. Edelman. Susan Sarandon is in talks to star in Barbara Stanwyck’s role, which won the late actress an Emmy in 1966. Filming is expected to begin in early summer.
