The Dukes of Hazzard movie
There is a Dukes of Hazzard movie being filmed, as I type this, somewhere in Louisiana. Here is the cast list:
Seann William Scott: Bo Duke
Johnny Knoxville: Luke Duke
Jessica Simpson: Daisy Duke
Burt Reynolds: Boss Hogg (an inspired choice, but why not Danny Devito?)
Willie Nelson: Uncle Jesse
Here are a few factoids:
- Dolly Parton turned the role of Daisy Duke's mother.
- Simpson beat out Britney Spears, Mandy Moore and Jessica Biel for her part.
- At one point, Paul Walker and Ashton Kutcher were considered to play the Duke cousins.
Here is the first image leaked from the production. It began popping up around the internet over the weekend.
What you'll notice from this photo, if you look closely, is that there does not appear to be a Confederate flag on the roof of the General Lee. Also: Simpson did not dye her hair. To see a larger copy, click here.
It will be released on July 29th, 2005.
If Starsky and Hutch is any indication, uh, no.
