Well, this could get interesting.

THR reports that Eastbound and Down creator and OBSERVE AND REPORT helmer Jody Hill has been tapped by WB to pen and direct a new action project for the studio, with everything else being kept under strict lock and key.

Rumor has it that the film could very well be a reboot of the beloved Dukes Of Hazzard franchise, with the outlet mentioning that Hill hopes to craft a film inspired by the films of Sam Peckinpah. Color this writer excited.

As a huge fan of Hill, I really can’t wait to see what he has in store for us here. I think that he’s one of the more interesting directors working today, and with OBSERVE being his last feature, it’s about damn time that we see what he has in store for us. He’s one of the most original voices in film, and the idea of him doing a Peckinpah-style film is so damn cool. Count me in.
