Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures has hired Legally Blonde screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith to pen a remake of the 1982 comedy The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Yes friends, the movie for which Dolly Parton (and her glorious assets) were nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy) is coming back to the big screen. And according to the report, the studio is planning a “complete overhaul” of the franchise. This will include musical numbers though, so don’t get too worried just yet.

The question now becomes — is there someone mustachioed enough to take on the role of Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd, originally portrayed by Burt Reynolds? And is there someone busty and bubbly enough to fill the shoes of Mona, originally played by Ms. Parton? It should be a fun one to cast, that’s for sure. Here’s hoping they at least stick in a couple of original numbers…

I will leave the dreamcasting to you, my friends. I have work to do. (And by work, I mean looking up photos of a young Dolly Parton).
