Since it has been a while since we have heard any
news from the set of Dukes
of Hazzard, any updates are good updates. And the latest
update comes from LatinoReview, who were able to get Seann William Scott
to sit down and answer some questions about his involvement as a brother
Seann William Scott is Bo Duke
During a set visit for the upcoming film Dukes
of Hazzard, LatinoReview
was able to catch up and shoot the shit with Scott while he was taking a
lunch break. Here is a snippet from their conversation:
How’s the experience so far?
Seann William Scott: This whole experience has been probably
the best I've ever had, certainly the most fun I've ever had. Pretty laid
[Producer] Bill [Gerber] said that you really wanted to do this
project. What was it about this script that wanted you to come do Dukes
of Hazzard? Was that because you were a really big fan of the show?
Seann William Scott: You know, it wasn't even…because I
was a really big fan of the show. I mean I was. I just thought it could
make a really cool movie. It's not that it's just a buddy comedy but it's
all about two guys hating each other and towards the end they're good friends.
I liked that these two guys were best friends from the very beginning, and
they're crazy. I thought it could make a really cool movie set in the South
about this family. And people are really familiar with these characters.
And as long as it's not like tongue-in-cheek, I thought if they really went
for it…when they'd expressed to me that they wanted it to be in the tone
of Smokey and the Bandit and The Blues Brothers and stuff with more kind
of a southern rock cool, I though that’d be cool.
When you first saw The General Lee, that must have been pretty cool.
Seann William Scott: Yeah! It was! It just looked great! I had actually at that point been working with a guy back in L.A. just training with a car, not the General Lee, but other cars. So the first thing that I thought about was, 'How is this car going to handle?' (Laughs) But then after I'd been driving with it and practicing with it and I accomplished that, then I just kind of sat back and looked at it and... I think I'm in the process of having someone build one for me. Minus the Confederate flag though. (Laughs) You know what I mean? I wouldn't want to drive around with that in L.A. It's so much fun to drive. I think now that we're about two weeks out, you kind of just look at it and the car is so cool. You get more nostalgic about the whole thing. I just think it's amazing to see this action with a car that everybody's so familiar with. You know, in the backwoods and on dirt roads and stuff. And getting Dan Bradley (stunt coordinator) and everybody from the whole Bourne Supremacy crew I think was real cool for our film. Cause we do a bunch of really big jumps in this movie. And we have chase scenes, which you’ve seen. We don’t have any CGI with any of the car stuff. I think it’s a real experience when you see this car going through really fast really wild and you see me driving a lot of the times and also a big chase in downtown ATLANTA it’s just incredible.
