Willie Nelson Returns for Second Dukes Movie

Another Dukes of Hazzard movie is in the works, with Willie Nelson reprising his role of Uncle Jesse. “I’m heading to California to do The Dukes of Hazzard 2,” Nelson said Thursday (June 9) in an interview with CMT Radio. “For the next three weeks, I’ll be Uncle Jesse, so I’m looking forward to that.” The movie is a prequel that’s expected to go directly to DVD. None of the other headlining stars are returning from the 2005 film version. The DVD is scheduled for release by Warner Bros. by the end of this year or in early 2007.
