Proving yet again that the creative well in Hollywood is drier than your mom’s overcooked turkey, a new remake has been announced. Smokey and the Bandit… Seriously. This is not a joke.

Hollywood Reporter is announcing that Craig Brewer, the writer of of Hustle and Flow, has signed on to make the film. This is his first movie since he distracted us from all the bad acting in Black Snake moan with Christina Ricci’s boobs.
