London: Singer-actress Hilary Duff has been dropped from a remake of ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ movie.
The 23-year-old was supposed to play Bonnie Parker in indie movie ‘The Story of Bonnie and Clyde’ alongside Kevin Zegers but the pair are no longer part of the project, reports contactmusic.com.
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."
