The Hollywood Reporter claims that the studio has hired Observe and Report director Jody Hill to helm a project rumoured to be a revival of the TV property.
Hill has been appointed to work on an action film set in the South in the 1970s, with Dukes of Hazzard producer Bill Gerber overseeing the untitled project.
The Dukes of Hazzard, which originally starred Tom Wopat and John Schneider, ran on CBS between 1979 and 1985. The show was adapted for the big screen in 2005, with Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville in the lead roles.
Warner Bros will make a decision on whether to bill the project as a Dukes of Hazzard reboot after Hill has completed his screenplay, sources claim.
A potential release date for the movie is yet to be announced.
