Will Heather Locklear Move Back to Melrose Place?

Melrose Place Fox

Heather Locklear is a wanted woman.

I just got word that Locklear has been approached to reprise her role as conniving advertising vixen Amanda Woodward on the upcoming new Melrose Place.

"The CW is courting Heather Locklear," a source exclusively reveals. "I don't think anyone else from the original has been approached yet."

And things seem to be moving pretty quickly over at Melrose.

The source says auditions have already begun and casting announcements may start next month.

It was recently reported that One Tree Hill's writer, Mark Schwahn, was likely to be writing the new series' pilot. Buzz has it that more than one script is being developed. The new Melrose will reportedly premiere next fall.

The source also said the characters will be more "culturally diverse" than the original cast.

Locklear's rep insists she has not been approached. A rep for the network could not immediately comment because of the holiday.

The original Melrose Place's seven-year run ended with Amanda tying the knot in a private island ceremony to her longtime love, Peter Burns, played by Locklear's now real-life boyfriend Jack Wagner.

Wouldn't it be fab to see Amanda and Peter return with a couple of kiddies in tow?
