Washington (ANI): Richard Gere is in negotiations to reunite with his An Officer and A Gentleman co-star Debra Winger on Broadway. Gere is the favourite to replace Bill Pullman in the upcoming revival of Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? opposite Winger, reports FoxNews.com.
Pullman was forced to pull out of the production because of a reported scheduling conflict. If Gere accepts the role, it will be his first Broadway stint since he appeared in Bent in the early 1980s. The play is based on the beloved 1968 movie, which starred Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy as the concerned parents of a young woman who brings a black doctor home as her fiance. Amanda Bynes has been lined up to play the couple's daughter in the revival.
