Sounds as though they're starting from scratch!
We reported last week that after announcing that she was pregnant with her first child, Hilary Duff had been cut from her role in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, and now, director Tonya Holly has confirmed the news!
“Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers, it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule…Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking.”
Meanwhile, the film's other lead, Kevin Zegers, has ALSO been cut from the role of Clyde, once again due to scheduling conflicts, and sources close to production have revealed that Amanda Seyfried and James McAvoy are apparently on the shortlist to replace them!
Hey! Not too shabby for replacements!
If they're involved, we'd DEFINITELY still be interested!
What do U think?? Who do U want to see play Bonnie and Clyde?
UPDATE - Seems that James McAvoy isn't up for the flick after all. We've just been told that no one has reached out to him from the movie for the part, thus he isn't in line for it. Whomp, whomp!
