This is hard to believe, but Production Weekly is reporting that TV director Bob Berlinger, (“Arrested Development“) is set to direct a straight to DVD prequel to Dukes Of Hazzard. There is no word on what studio the film is for, but I have a hard time believing Warner Bros. would be behind this, but who knows
PW goes on to say that the storyline will follow Bo and Luke Duke as teenagers during their first wild weeks in Hazzard County. While Boss Hogg outlaws moonshine in an attempt to establish his own monopoly, the boys get into a heap o’ trouble making deliveries of the now-illegal liquor for Uncle Jesse in an effort to save his farm from foreclosure, and we learn the origins of the General Lee and Daisy Duke’s daisy dukes.
Filming is scheduled to begin mid-June in Los Angeles.
