Hilary Duff was supposed to play Bonnie Parker in ‘The Story of Bonnie and Clyde’ but then she got herself knocked up and had to ditch the role which has now gone to Lindsay Pulsipher (fromÂ The Hatfields and McCoys & True Blood).
According to THR,
â€œWe are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role,â€ says producerÂ Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions in a statement.Â â€œThis is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives inÂ history.
Producers Holly and Tom Rogers denied that Duff was fired from the film in August because she announced she was expecting her first child with husband Mike Comrie, a hockey player. They instead credited scheduling issues, and toldÂ The Hollywood Reporter she was unavailable until June. They aim to begin production later this year.
â€œDue to our obligations with investors and international buyers, it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule,â€ they said in a joint statement. â€œTherefore we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles. Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking.â€
