It seems every summer there are some movies that start out as nothing more than a goofy, silly spoof on the classic teen movies of the ’80s.
And this year, the latest entry is the one that started it all: The Dukes of Hazard.
In a move that’s only been going on for a few months, Warner Bros. has just officially announced that it’s partnering with British indie producer Dee Bar Entertainment to produce the sequel to the 2012 cult hit, Dukes Of Hazard.
The sequel, which will be directed by Dee Bar, will be the third Dukes installment after the first two films, with director Michael Keaton, director of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, starring Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Max von Sydow, also penning the screenplay.
The third film is set for release in 2019.
So how exactly did this thing become so big?
And what can you expect to see in this sequel?
Check out our exclusive interview with Dee Bar’s John Lee, who has been working on the Dukes sequel since last fall, to find out more.1.
It’s set in the ’90s, right?
It was supposed to be set in this era.
I don’t remember it, but I think it was, right before I was doing The Dark Tower.2.
What do you think the Dukes of Hazard is going to be about?
I don´t think it’s going to change too much.
It is going on the same premise, but with a different cast.3.
What’s the plot?
The Duks of Hazard has a lot of the same elements, but you never really know how it’s all going to play out.
I think that will be fun.4.
How does it compare to the original Dukes?
There are a lot more characters and they are a little more dynamic, but the premise is similar.5.
What are the biggest changes to the Duke of Hazard?
It has a different style of writing.
The dialogue is much more in line with the way the movies were done before.
It will have a different feel to it, which is great.6.
Is there going to a focus on the family aspect?
You can see that it is much older, but it is not as much of a family drama as the original.7.
What did you think of the original movie?
The original movie is very funny and it’s also a great movie, so it will appeal to a younger audience, and it has a little bit of that, but they are different things.
It was the first film I watched, so I was a little confused by it, and the tone was a bit different.
It has some elements of both.8.
Does it have a certain feel to the story?
There is a sense of humour in the film, but that is a small part of it.
It isn’t a bad movie, but there is no focus on that.9.
What does it mean to be a part of this sequel series?
It is a good thing.
It means I get to do what I love doing.
I have never done anything like this, but this is the first time.
What can you tell us about the characters?
The cast is going from great to great.
It also seems that they will all get a chance to work together again.
They are all great people.11.
Do you think this sequel will be a success?
It feels like we have a lot to look forward to.
