It’s appropriate that the Dukes of Hazzard movie has its base of operations at a former Baton Rouge car dealership. The high-octance cheesefest featured car chases and crashes, usually with “General Lee,” a red auto driven by lead characters Bo and Luke Duke.Here's some more info on it, from the Celebrity website.
A reincarnation of the revved-up 1969 Dodge Charger with the “01” emblazoned on the doors will soon grace the grounds of the former Team Toyota lot on Florida Boulevard. Warner Brothers signed a six month lease to base operations there for the movie. It will be shot in Louisiana, courtesy of state tax credits.
Ben Graham and Marc Larker of Latter & Blum handled the lease of 60,000 square feet. Graham says he could be cast as an extra in the movie, which would give him more than a commission check. He might get to rub shoulders with Jessica Simpson, the dingy pop blonde who plays Daisy Duke.
This is excellent news for Louisiana, and for my fellow Bo-Duke-loving friend, Krismeister. I think she should try to be an extra in this film. It would only be right.
