Hilary Duff dropped from Bonnie and Clyde remake

August 23rd, 2011

Hilary Duff has been dropped from a remake of 'Bonnie and Clyde'.

The 23-year-old actress had been due to play Bonnie Parker in indie movie 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde' alongside Kevin Zegers as Clyde, but the pair have now both been removed due to neither being available until next year.

Producers Tonya Holly and Tom Rogers confirmed in a statement: "While production has been pushed several times due to financial, scheduling and other factors such as tornados devastating some of our locations, we are currently gearing up to star production later this year. Unfortunately we are now faced with scheduling conflicts with our leads Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers.

"We were told that Duff would not be available until June 2012 and that Zegers would not be available until January of the new year. Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule. Therefore we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles. Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking."

It is not known who is in line to take over the leading roles.
