Hilary Duff is out of The Story of Bonnie and Clyde remake because she’s pregnant, according to rumors floated today but is that really true? Well, sort of. It’s because she isn’t available to start shooting by the end of the year.
The 23 year-old and her husband, hockey pro Mike Comrie, announced just last week that they are starting family and Hilary is expecting.
According to producers, they were told the actress would not be available until June of 2012. Duff’s costar, Kevin Zegers, now also has commitments and will not be able to film before January of 2012.
“While production has been pushed several times due to financial, scheduling and other factors such as tornadoes devastating some of our locations, we are currently gearing up to start production later this year,” the producers told EW.
“Unfortunately we now faced with scheduling conflicts with our leads Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers. We were told that Duff would not be available until June 2012 and that Zegers would not be available until January of the new year.”
“Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule. Therefore we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles. Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking.”
So both lead actors have told producers they won’t be able to shoot and casting begins again.
Who would you cast?
