We're all eagerly awaiting the straight-to-DVD release of the next "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, which is a prequel to the TV series and which fans hope will leave the 2005 film in the dust. Well, one interesting element to "The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning," which hits store shelves next month, is the remaking of our beloved characters as younger -- and sometimes hotter -- versions of what we saw on the TV series.
Case in point: Step on over to Daisy Duke's blog on MySpace and you'll see a ton of great screen shots from the upcoming film. Daisy blathers on in her blog about "the most gorgeous man in Hazzard," Hughie Hogg! Yes, that's the guy that Jeff Altman played (padded like crazy) in the TV series! And let's not even talk about Lulu Hogg ... sigh ... BRBTV loved Peggy Rea in the role, and BRBTV loves the stunning Sherilyn Fenn in just about anything she does (particularly "Twin Peaks"!), but ... let's just say it's going to take some convincing!
Our own blather aside, you can read more of the "setup" for us fans at not only Daisy's blog, but also Luke Duke's blog on MySpace. And visit the official home page of the film and Daisy's official MySpace page for a little more info.
(And hey -- who woulda thought that our little Daisy was the one who painted that "01" on the General Lee?)
