Hilary Duff just got gutted by the powers that be in the industry. The newly pregnant actress was dropped from the lead role in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. I guess Hollywood does not want a knocked up Bonnie Parker shooting up banks and getting shot to death in the end.
Duff was supposed to play Bonnie Parker in the upcoming film … but sources involved in the production tell us they’re moving forward sans Hilary — a decision that was made right after Hil broke her baby news last week. We’re told the director is already shopping for a new Bonnie, and the split was amicable. As one source put it, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Shooting is scheduled for this Fall.
If prego Duff isn’t cool with the switch this could be another Tylo Hunter situation — the actress who won a $4.8 million judgment when pregnancy cost her a “Melrose Place”role.
