The Hollywood Reporter says a project that could turn into a reboot of “The Dukes of Hazzard” is in the works at Warner Bros.

The studio has hired ”Eastbound and Down” co-creator Jody Hill to write and direct the untitled film, which is about an outlaw duo in the Southwest circa 1970′s.

A decision won’t be made about whether to call the film a Hazzard reboot until Hill is finished writing, but the involvement of [Bill] Gerber, who produced the studio’s 2005 big-screen version that starred Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville, would make the process easier.

The 2005 film, and it’s prequel, were based on the classic TV series starring John Schneider and Tom Wopat.
