Cypress Moon Studios has announced that "True Blood" star Lindsay Pulsipher has replaced Hilary Duff in the role of Bonnie for The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.
"We are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role," producer Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions said. "This is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives in history."
Holly wrote the script and will also direct. Filming will take place in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and likely Missouri.
Duff had to drop out because shooting is scheduled for later this year. She wouldn't be available until June. The same goes for Kevin Zegers, who was cast as Clyde Barrow and won't be available until January. A new actor for the role has not been announced.
Cypress Moon Studios describes the movie as follows:
Bonnie Parker wanted something different…something exciting. Clyde Barrow wanted to be remembered. When their worlds collided, the rest became history.
In a small Texas town in the 1930’s Depression, Bonnie Parker had dreams of becoming an actress or perhaps a poet. She knew more than anything that she wanted out – out of poverty, away from Texas, and she wanted a love story that would never end.
Clyde Barrow grew up poor. He loved guns, cars, and getting noticed. It was his love for the finer things that would cost him his freedom. It is his loss of freedom that changes the boy to a man, and a man into a killer.
The Story of Bonnie and Clyde begins with a love that cannot be broken, but Clyde’s love of money and excitement and his fear of returning to the Texas prison system leads them both into a world of violence.
The story unravels, revealing a love story that has surpassed the decades. Every moment leads the couple into a web of no return, which will leave the audience breathless.
This is a new account of the lives of the infamous Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This telling will uncover times in their lives that have never been seen on the big screen before.
What began as a beautiful love story, ends as one of the most remembered ambushes in history. This film will take you into the life and times of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This is The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.
