Hilary Duff dropped from new `Bonnie and Clyde` movie
Los Angeles: Singer-actress Hilary Duff has been dropped from the much hyped remake of the cult hit `Bonnie and Clyde`.
The former child star was set to play Bonnie Parker in the reprisal of the 60`s movie but she will now be replaced with another actress, reported TMZ.
Although, the name of the new star has not yet been announced, Duff will still be paid even though she is out of the job.
`Gossip Girl` star Kevin Zegers is to remain on and play Clyde Barrow in the project titled `The Story of Bonnie and Clyde`.
The 23-year-old who married Canadian hockey player Mike Comrie in August last year had a much publicised spat with Faye Dunaway, who played the female fugitive in the original movie.
The original film was released in 1967 starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as the title characters.
When Dunaway heard that her Academy Award-winning role was going to be played by a former Disney star she remarked, "Couldn`t they at least cast a real actress?"
But Duff later hit back at the Hollywood legend saying, "I think that my fans that are going to go see the movie don`t even know who she is. I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now too."
`Bonnie & Clyde`, about a couple who go from pulling small-time heists to robbing banks, received eight Academy award nominations and won Dunaway an Oscar.
