Today there came news that Hilary Duff will be starring in an "indie teen romance" titled Greta. The story revolves around "a young waitress who embarks on a romance with an ambitious chef (Evan Ross). Her grandparents (Ellen Burstyn and Michael Murphy) have their concerns about the boy's criminal past."
As Zap2It points out, Duff's previous credits include Material Girls, Cheaper by the Dozen, The Perfect Man and Raise Your Voice, not to mention, of course "Lizzie McGuire." This Greta project seems like a bit of a departure from her fluffy kid stuff and I wonder how she'll do with the material.
What do you think about Duff taking on meatier, indie roles?
