George Kennedy: "The Man Who Came Back"

George Kennedy certainly is "The Man Who Came Back," and we're glad he did. This legendary actor, who posted decades of great work before hitting the Weststar boardroom as Carter McKay on "Dallas," doesn't show any signs of retirement, does he?

Now he takes on a tale of murder and revenge that also stars Billy Zane, Armand Assante (meow!) and Sean Young. In postproduction as of this week, "The Man Who Came Back" is written and directed by Glen Pitre with some help from Chuck Walker. It comes from Gudegast Braeden Productions (and is also starring and produced by Eric Braeden, another legendary actor best known as Victor Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" -- Gudegast is his birth last name, and Gudegast Braeden is also a producer in the film). The movie was filming in Brackettville and Montgomery, Texas.

Kennedy plays Judge Duke in this western, which focuses on a labor strike in 1870. It's scheduled for release next year.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: Tap on over to the Hallmark Channel home page to see our boy John Schneider of "The Dukes of Hazzard" at work in his latest film, "You've Got a Friend," which premieres tomorrow (see our April 19 post for more on that). Renee of the All-John blog also tells us that Schneider has an interview in this week's TV Guide regarding the film. A new script for all FOUR Duke boys? Hmm ... very interesting ...
