According to Variety, Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers (their faces are pasted over Dunaway and Beatty’s bodies above) above are set to star as Bonnie and Clyde in an all new adaptation by Tonya S. Holly and Cypress Moon Studios. The independent feature, titled The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, is based on newspaper articles about the gangsters and will not be a remake of the Beatty classic. Natalie Canerday and Rance Howard are co-starring in the crime drama.
I’ll be completely honest, I had no idea who Zegers was and I had to IMDB him. His four Air Bud credits don’t exactly scream that hes a good fit for Clyde. Duff also has not done anything to impress or convince me that she is right for the role. I think I’ll stick with my DVD copy of Bonnie and Clyde and skip this Story.
How about you, will you give this new version a chance?
