ABOUT JOHN SCHNEIDERJohn Schneider, the only real Bo Duke, has launched his family comedy film JOHN SCHNEIDER’S COLLIER & CO. – HOT PURSUIT! in limited release in theaters throughout the South. COLLIER & CO. has been selling out in theaters. The movie has been drawing an amazing cross-generational audience, bringing in kids and grandparents, including those who say they hadn’t gone to a movie theater in decades but needed to see John Schneider in his movie.These are exciting days for Schneider. He roared to stardom as Bo Duke on TV’s hit show THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, jumping creeks in the famous ‘69 Dodge Charger, “The General Lee.” The popular and evergreen ‘80s series continues to air in multiple reruns on cable and recently spawned a couple new movies. After many starring roles in TV shows including “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” “Diagnosis Murder,” and “Veronica's Closet,” Schneider burst back into popular stardom as Jonathan Kent, Superboy’s father, on the hit series “Smallville.”Schneider is drawing new fans as he now moves into feature films. Schneider’s most important project, however, is the newly-released family comedy “John Schneider’s Collier & Co. – Hot Pursuit!” “This is my baby,” Schneider says of the PG-rated film that he wrote back when good guys were fun and bad guys weren’t so evil. “Collier & Co. is the most original and exciting car chase movie since Smokey and the Bandit.”Schneider produced, directed, and stars in COLLIER & CO. and financed it out of his own pocket. His ‘69 orange Dodge Charger, now known as “Traveller,” is roaring through the film, jumping creeks and causing mayhem.“John Schneider’s Collier & Co. – Hot Pursuit!” tells the story of J.R. Collier, a man who used to be the greatest race car driver in the country, but who now struggles to keep his family together as his wife demands a divorce because, as she says, “A family needs security.” And good ol’ boy Collier knows nothing about security. He cooks up a scheme to win exotic cars by street racing unsuspecting rich boys, and then sell them to highest bidders. But one car contains something the bad guys want back, and want back real bad. So, the chase is on… with Traveller, his powerful ‘69 orange Dodge Charger leaping through the air, with helicopters chasing him down, with exotic cars racing down lonely narrow roads. In the end, Collier wins… the cars, the money, and, most importantly, his family.Schneider is currently in production on the Morgan Creek production “Sydney White,” a modern retelling of Snow White set against students in their freshman year of college in the Greek system. Schneider stars alongside Amanda Bynes in this hotly-anticipated picture due in theaters in ‘08.He will be starring in the upcoming production of Jack London’s “Call of the Wild” as John Thornton, starring alongside Christopher Lloyd.Schneider stars alongside Cloris Leachman in the horror movie “Lake Placid 2,” the SciFi Channel’s sequel to the ‘99 horror flick “Lake Placid.” He also stars in the current film “Hidden Secrets,” a comedy that asks, “How well do you know your friends?” “These are exciting days,” says Schneider. “I’m proud of these projects, especially of my film COLLIER & CO.” John Schneider has appeared in: MOVIES:Call of the Wild – John Thornton ‘08; Derby – lead character ‘08; The Ogre – lead character ‘08; Blood Pressure – Walter ‘08; Sydney White – Paul White ‘07; Beautiful Loser – Andre ‘07; Collier & Co.—Hot Pursuit! - J.R.
