Hilary Duff is set to play Bonnie to Kevin Zegers's Clyde in a new story about the lawless duo. The indie movie The Story of Bonnie and Clyde will be directed by Tonya S. Holly from her own script, "which is a new adaptation of the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow rather than a remake of the 1967 classic film. . . Holly began working on the project after reading old newspaper articles about the gangster pair in an abandoned house on her family's property."
I think a new Bonnie and Clyde story might be cool, but I probably would have never in a million years thought of Hilary Duff to play Bonnie. I do find it interesting that Duff has been veering more and more into the independent film world, though. The last major film she worked on was the 2006 movie Material Girls. I wonder if eventually we'll be able to see her as something more than an older Lizzie Maguire? What do you think?
