    Casting wrapped up for Dukes of Hazzard movie

    http://www.moviepoopshoot.com/news/oct04/72.html

    "The Dukes of Hazzard" has just found its Boss.

    Burt Reynolds and Willie Nelson will join the cast of Warner Bros. bigscreen remake of campy TV actioner "The Dukes of Hazzard," with Reynolds playing corrupt politician Boss Hogg and Nelson as Uncle Jesse.

    Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville have already signed to play Bo and Luke Duke. Jessica Simpson will play Daisy Duke.

    Adaptation will be set in the present day but the General Lee, the duo's 1969 Dodge Charger, is expected to be the same iconic orange car seen in the series.

    Pic is being directed by Jay Chandrasekhar of the Broken Lizards comedy troupe, who co-wrote the script. Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. are partnered on the pic, also co-written by John O'Brien and being produced by Billy Gerber.

    WB exec Greg Silverman is overseeing the project. (As reported by VARIETY)

    Willie Nelson as Uncle Jessie???? I don't like it. Burt as Boss Hogg though seems kinda funny, but Willie Nelson, come on. Who is gonna play Cooter, Tom Jones??

    Broken Lizards stuff is incredibly funny, so this could be a very good sign.

    I wonder if in 20 years, we'll see remakes of these remakes? When that happens, I can stop going to movies.
