Dukes of Hazzard - The movie

The tv-series Dukes of Hazzard aired from 1979-1985. Some reunion movies were made later on, but none of those were a great succes.

A while ago the production of the movie Dukes of Hazzard started, with an interesting cast. Luke Duke will be played by Johnny Knoxville (Jackass), Bo Duke by Seann William Scott (American Pie, Road Trip) and Daisy Duke by Jessica Simpson ("Chicken of the Sea"). Burt Reynolds will be the new Boss Hogg, Willie Nelson will take the part of Unce Jessie. The movie will be out in 2005.

Some people might have noticed that Bo and Luke have not always been played by the same actors during the series. There was one season that John Schneider and Tom Wopat went on strike. They had the feeling they were not receiving a cut from the merchandise, and complained about the low quality of some of the scripts.
