Willie Nelson, Mogul


Country-music legend Willie Nelson has lent his imprimatur to a film-production company called Luck Films. Based in Luck, Texas, Nelson and his partners will produce three to five projects per year -- most below the $3 million range. The 76-year-old himself will appear in the first pair of movies, including Shootout of Luck and The Dry Gulch Kid. And who can blame him? If you had Surfer, Dude, Beer For My Horses and The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning littering the most recent section of your CV, you'd probably seek some legacy redemption, too. [Variety]
