OK, this one has been well-known to "Dukes" fans who frequent the message boards and other Hazzard County locales around the 'Net, but just in case there are some folks out there who aren't aware of it ...
John Schneider, our own handsome Bo Duke, will premiere his new film "Collier & Co." at the Big Cruisefest Stars, Cars and More show in Little Rock, Arkansas, next month. The annual event will feature a "Dukes Day" for a third time. And this year, it's bigger and better and heckin'-near a Dukesfest in its own right: Besides Schneider appearing, there will be James Best (Rosco P. Coltrane), Sonny Shroyer (Enos Strate) and Rick Hurst (Cletus Hogg), along with show stuntmen Corey Eubanks and Al Wyatt Jr., and mechanic Tom Sarmento.
The event itself is October 13 and 14, with the showing of "Collier & Co." on Friday, October 13. Though admission to the Big Cruisefest is free, tickets for the film premiere are $12.50, and they'll benefit a charity. Find out more at http://www.starscarsandmore.com/.
Schneider will have another more "official" premiere of the film in Memphis later in the month.
"'Collier' is a fun script that is exactly what "The Dukes of Hazzard" movie should have been," Schneider says of the film, for which he's even gotten "Dukes" fan involvement. "Something for the whole family with me and lots of fast cars! A one-time top racecar driver fights to get his wife and daughter back from the bad guys. Lot's of fun, driving and laughs."
