Since Hollywood has no original ideas and have apparently run out of Japanese horror movies to remake, they have now turned their attention to the 60’s classic, Bonnie and Clyde. Starring Hilary Duff. Yeah, I know. Faye Dunaway said the same thing. US Magazine reports:
“Couldn’t they have at least cast a real actress?” Dunaway said last week.
Not liking the question posed by the original star of the movie, Hilary Duff responded:
“I think that my fans that are going to go see the movie don’t even know who she is, so you know….I think it was a little unnecessary but I might be mad if I looked like that now too.”
Wow, okay. I’m not sure what this remake is going to involve, but unless Bonnie and Clyde are going to be troublemaker street dancers from the wrong side of the tracks with only one shot at their dream, then maybe somebody should listen to Faye Dunaway. Because, to reiterate, it’s Hilary Duff. Hiring Hilary Duff to play a bank robber is like hiring the Secretary of the Treasury to do your taxes. Sure, I guess they could both technically do the job, but something tells me that it might not be the best choice.
