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.

They didn't tell us why she was replaced. Hmmmmmm...Could it be because of her "rude" comment she made about the origional actresss Faye Dunaway? You don't call someone of her stature and fame, basically a has-been and get away with it.

That is absolutely bull **** that she is getting dropped. Hilary is an amazing actress and should not have been dropped, specially before the acting even began. You have to at least give her a chance, and if you would have she would have been a wonderful role for the part. -.-

To those who say Faye Dunaway was "all that", Faye Dunaway was and must still be cross-eyed. She was a good actress like Karen Black, another cross-eyed actress who can act, but hard to look at. Hilary Duff is at least kinda cute even if she can't act.

Well, if she's still getting paid that usually means that they dropped her from the project. She wouldn't be getting paid if she dropped out. Couldn't think of a worse person to play that part. She is the complete opposite of Bonnie and she couldn't play a wart on Faye Dunaway's azz. She hasn't done any music lately because her sales are marginal, unlike when she was "popular" and her sales were just above marginal. Time to make movies with real actors, not tweenie heart throbs and imaginary best friends.

She has no real talent and her Disney base is fading away. If you were banking a movie would you cast her, she's as stiff and unnatural as it gets.

She just doesn't have "It".

No,no, no, I was so looking forward to only watching that movie if Hilary Duff played in it. Now I won't go see it. She looked the part and she's my favorite actress. Is there anything anybody can do to bring her back? She was perfect for the part.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families that have lost their jobs, their homes, and their loved ones because of the April 27th tornadoes. Everyone that we know has been touched in one way, shape or form, from what has happened. Our prayers go out to our Stunt Coordinator, Ronnie Jaynes, whose in-laws lost everything.

ProUS: I never thought of Faye as being cross eyed. and just recently saw a photo of her, recent, where her eyes are not crossed but normal. I dont know where you are getting this information, but I suggest you look at recent photos of Faye. She is far from cross eyed.
