Hilary Duff

DROPPED

From Bonnie & Clyde Movie

5/5/2011 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hilary Duff is no longer an outlaw ... she's just OUT -- TMZ has learned the actress will be REPLACED as Bonnie Parker in the upcoming movie, "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde."

Hilary Duff Bonnie and Clyde

Sources connected to the project tell us ... Duff will still get paid ... but producers are looking to find a new actress to play the role.

We're told ... producers have not yet decided who will replace Duff -- but "Gossip Girl" star Kevin Zegers is still slated to play Clyde.

UPDATE: After the casting director issued a press release confirming they were actively searching for Hilary's replacement ... the director of the movie, Tonya Holly, called TMZ and told us the casting director jumped the gun.

Holly tells us she still wants Hilary to appear in the movie -- and the two sides are trying to work out scheduling conflicts.

Love that Faye Dunaway was right when she heard of the remake she said and I quote "couldn't they cast a real actress".

Loves it!

Dropped from the role, but still getting paid?? HMM..Is the next announcement that she is pregnant? Or have health concerns? Her acting skills would be known before she was originally hired, and her losing the role must be for something that is beyond her control, or why still pay her?

Faye Dunaway was right!!! Faye may be a b*tch of the first order, but when it comes to acting, she knows what she speaks of.

The producers should have worked a package deal with her uglier sister playing Clyde. They probably could have gotten two for the price of one.

Why'd they drop her? I think she would have done fairly well. Although, Faye Dunnaway was the best!! And Warren Beatty was the best Clyde. There's NO replacing them! Why doesn't Hollywood leave the good classics alone!!! If it ain't broke,... don't fix it!!!!

YAY! That's GREAT news! She was offensive and disrespectful to Faye Dunaway...who will always be the classic Bonnie. Not even sure why they're making another "Bonnie & Clyde," when the original is such a wonderful movie classic. Next they'll be remaking "Casablanca!" ugh....

According to the Official Facebook Page of The Story of Bonnie & Clyde:
The TMZ story was not originated by the producers of "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde". Hilary Duff is still slated to play Bonnie Parker. The storms on April 27th damaged 2 locations which has caused a brief delay to production.

She's got to love getting paid millions for doing absolutely nothing. They should have known she's only suited to portray airhead teenie boppers.

Hope this is not true, these producers are so WRONG! Hilary has proved she can do any part & she has grown so much as an actress, so you all people who is still watching her as the "disney" star should be more informed & watch her latest proyects, the critics have told as well, so first watch & then speak you asswholes ¬¬

This movie will never get made because producers can't finance it. It's been in the casting stage for going on three years, and still no dates set for actual production. Blah Blah Hilary Duff won't get paid in the end because there is no money.
