John Schneider to premiere new film at Birdsong Drive-In

CAMDEN, Tenn. — One local drive-in has a treat for “The Dukes of Hazzard” and “Smokey and The Bandit” fans.

John Schneider — the original Bo Duke — is coming to West Tennessee to premiere his new movie “Poker Run.”

The movie, along with a concert, will be held this Saturday afternoon at 4 at the Birdsong Drive-In in Camden.

The film is a sequel to Schneider’s movie “Stand On It,” a tribute to the 1977 “Smokey and The Bandit” movie.

“It’s the same characters, the same cool vibe,” said actor/musician Cody McCarver. “Cars, boats jumping over rivers… Just a really cool thing.”

Schneider says he describes the movie as a southern horsepower comedy, and says the goal for the movie is for viewers to have a good time.

“It’s a whole lot of fun,” Schneider said. “We go everywhere from dirt roads, to boats on the bayou, to cars on a racetrack, a dirt track race. I am very excited about this.”
