WB PAYS $17 MILLION FOR DUKES


Of course any reason to post a picture of Jessica Simpson and hype her upcoming movie DUKES OF HAZZARD (who are the 2 guys playing the male leads again?), there has been a bit of a problem with the rights of the movie that the details have been kept quiet and for any true pop culture fan you must know this:

Warner Bros. Pictures has agreed to pay a Georgia-based producer at least $17.5 million for infringing on the copyright to his even-more-obscure 1974 United Artists film, "Moonrunners," which became the basis of the hit Warners TV skein, "The Dukes of Hazzard."
This is amazing! Nobody making a multi-million dollar movie thought to have the WB lawyers check this out properly.
