Despite protests from some cinephiles, a new Bonnie and Clyde movie is on its way. So far, though, the road has been bumpy. Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers were initially set to play Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the two lovebird bank robbers who rose to fame during the Great Depression. However, scheduling conflicts will prevent Duff and Zegers from assuming the roles. So writer/director Tonya S. Holly must look elsewhere to fill out the cast in time to shoot The Story of Bonnie and Clyde later this year in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Missouri. Holly and producer Tom Rogers have found their new Bonnie, at least, in Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood). Because, as Holly told THR, “Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role.” Undoubtedly.
Pulsipher is currently filming the History Channel miniseries The Hatfields and the McCoys. The actress has two independent features in the can: The Oregonian (a Sundance selection) and Meth Head, which should see release later this year. Seems like a lateral move at worst, and perhaps a nice addition. Minimally, Pulsipher will look cute under that beret.
