"BLUE COLLAR COMEDY TOUR" TO HIT THE BIG SCREEN

Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall have had such success with their "Blue Collar Comedy Tour," that Warner Bros. has shown an interest in making a movie out of the concept.

For those of you who haven't seen the tour, the movie will have the entire show -- plus behind-the-scenes footage.

The film doesn't have a title yet, but is scheduled to start shooting this summer with a tentative release time slated for near the end of the year.

If tour dollars are any indication, the movie should be a smash hit. The Blue Collar Tour has raked in over $12 million so far, as well as produced a live album.

Foxworthy has sold over 13 million comedy albums and authored 11 best-selling books. Engvall has sold over 2 million albums, and his comedy CD, "Cheap Drunk," is due out in August.
