(CBS News) "Observe and Report" director and HBO's "Eastbound and Down" co-creator Jody Hill are reportedly writing and attached to direct an untitled action film set in the American South for Warner Bros. that some are speculating is a "Dukes of Hazzard" reboot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story is set in the 1970s South and involves an outlaw duo.

"The Dukes of Hazzard" was originally a CBS TV show that aired from 1979-1985 starring Tom Wopat and John Schneider. The series was turned into a movie in 2005 starring Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville.

Billy Gerber, who produced the 2005 film, is also attached to produce with Hill.
