Hi, Bryan Here….
Warner Bros. has hired Jody Hill (creator and director of Eastbound and Down and Observe and Report) to write and direct an action film project that is currently untitled. The project is being kept under wraps, but we know that the story is set in the South n the 1970’s and involves an outlaw duo according to THR.
A few sources close to the film say that the project could evolve into a reboot of The Dukes of Hazzard, which was a 70’s television series and later became a 2005 feature film starring Sean William Scott and Johnny Knoxville. Hill wants to make a smart action film in the vein of Sam Peckinpah. I hope this doesn’t become a reboot, and stays an original film. But I expect Danny McBride and Seth Rogen to be involved some how and it be more comedic than action. Maybe it will be in the vein of Pinapple Express, but more of a 70’s western. Who knows?
