Default The Lowdown on The Dukes of Hazard remake

Here's the real story. Bonnie Hammer has friends in high places at Warner Brothers and she persuaded them to bring in Ronald D Moore for the movie treatment. Ronald D Moore has stated his idea on how to make The Dukes of Hazard more politically correct for today's audiences.

Brittany Spears will in fact be playing Bo Duke because Moore felt that the original Bo was too much of a cliche and decided to work his gender bender magic on him or shall I say her.

Luke Duke will basically be the same.

Bo will now be a sexy hot blonde

Ron had made this version more politically correct by adding sexual tension and possibly incest between the two cousins.

Both Bo and Luke will have a bad relationship with their Uncle Jesse (Jack Nicholson) who in this version is a crazy 24/7 Moonshine drinking old hillbilly.

Enos (Brad Pitt) will have a crush on Bo Duke but still manage to hump every female traffic violator he pulls over.

Sheriff Roscoe (Arnold Shwarzenegger) will be a clever, skillful and dangerous cop who gives the Dukes more than a run for their money. Ronald D Moore has described him as being a human version of the Terminator.

Boss Hogg (Danny Devito) is an unwilling victim who is constantly being sexually seduced by his seductress banker Ms Lulu Belle (ex porn star Traci Lords).

The seductress Lulu Belle is in fact the mastermind behind the corruption in Hazard County.

Cooter (Beyonce Knowles) appears to be a close friend of Bo and Luke Duke but in fact she is a spy for Ms Lulu Belle. Cooter will be the mistress sabator of the General Lee. Yes Cooter is also going to be a women in this version. Ron Moore stated that he felt this change was necessary because women make just as good of an auto mechanic as men do.

Ronald D Moore is confident that this movie will bring in a new audience for this franchise and to please the original fans as well. In fact he says this version will be better than that corny television series from the 80s. His pitch to the studio is to portray a realistic car jumping and police chases videos within the movie along with split screens and shaky cam corders that will be installed in the General Lee and in the police cars as well. Just think of this as a big screen version of Fox's wildest police videos caught on film.

The Dukes of Hazard opens everywhere in theaters December 7, 2004.

Default Flag???

Yes, but, you didn't mention what will be painted on the roof of the Gen. Lee???? Somehow I don't think it will be a Confederate flag anymore

The General Lee will now be a DeLorian with cowprint seatcovers and a horn that plays the 1812 Overture.

The logo on the roof of the General will be the emblam of the NAACP. And the car will be renamed the Elijah Mohammed.

Gee thanks Charybdis,

I put alot of thought and creativity into that Dukes of Hazzard re-imagined satire and you took it way off course.

Scooter,......What a hoot!! :laugh:

Why is it that Danny Devito seems like such a perfect fit for Boss Hogg?

With Sorrell Booke gone, DeVito would be an excellent choice for Boss Hogg in a true-to-the-original remake (not like the one we're getting).

Default Crucified again...

Sorry scooter. This seems to happen to me quite a bit. I was taken to task on a props forum because I got involved and asked a question about a similar item/prop. The original poster nailed me to the wall for taking over his thread!!! I had no idea!!!

I just asked a detailed question about your satire and it seems it has happened all over again... I apologize. I guess I should just keep my trap shut and not participate anymore and just watch you guys have all the fun

I was just kidding Charybdis.

However since this satire comes so close to what is happening with BSG, I am tempted to find a Dukes of Hazard Forum and post it to see what kind of reaction it would get.

I am also changing the unlikable Uncle Jesse from Jack Nicholson to Nick Nolte.

I am also in the process of writing an X-Files remake (re-imagined Ronald D Moore style),

This will feature a female Mulder, Foxy Mulder instead of Fox Mulder.

Can you imagine what RDM would do with Bugs Bunny? CSI? Hell, even My Mother The Car?

aw come on, Face could be the girl this time, since Moore-ron likes to pick on Dirk's characters, and she could date Murdock.
