The Dukes of Hazzard:MTV's recent interview with actress Jessica Simpson revealed some proposed production details about the feature debut of "The Dukes of Hazzard"...

"The Daisy Duke role is getting closer and closer," Jessica Simpson said backstage at the recent Wango Tango On-Air festival. "You never know what's gonna happen, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that after the tour I will go straight into being Miss Daisy."

Simpson has been in the running to play Bo and Luke Duke's cousin since she met with producers of the movie adaptation earlier this year (see "Jessica, Britney May 'Duke' It Out Over Short Shorts"). If the deal goes through (Simpson's management said a formal offer has yet to go out), "The Dukes of Hazzard" will be her big-screen debut.
