It's a wonderful life for one of 'dem Duke boys. Well, kind of.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, John Schneider -- Bo Duke from 'The Dukes of Hazzard' -- has agreed to star in 'Doonby,' a modern-day version of the Jimmy Stewart classic 'Its a Wonderful Life,' but "with a little more edge."

Schneider will play the title character, Sam Doonby, a drifter who settles in a Texas town, only to find himself impervious to the bad luck that befalls the townsfolk. British filmmaker Peter Mackenzie will write and direct the film, and AC/DC's Brian Johnson will provide the soundtrack.
