Hilary Duff Apparently Earned $100K By Not Doing 'Bonnie & Clyde'; Amanda Seyfried Turns Down Role

Granted, this all comes from TMZ so it could have very well been dreamed up when Harry Levin was smoking a bowl with Max Hodges, but they also tend to give a mouthpiece to people with an agenda or who give great quotes or both (please see the Lohans).

Granted, this all comes from TMZ so it could have very well been dreamed up when Harry Levin was smoking a bowl with Max Hodges, but they also tend to give a mouthpiece to people with an agenda or who give great quotes or both (please see the Lohans).

Anyway, according to their sources, Hilary Duff who was recently dropped from the forthcoming and ill-advised “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde” was still paid a cool $100,000 thanks to a pay-or-play deal that was in place, ensuring her a check whether she did the movie or not. For producers Tonya Holly and Tom Rogers, we're sure they had nothing to gain by letting that info slip, especially after they were accused of dropping the actress thanks to her pregnancy inconveniencing everybody.

And we're sure it also helps get the word out about the film when you say that Amanda Seyfried turned down the movie. It sure makes it look like some bigger names might want to take on the role right? Anyway, that's what they say but we can't imagine she was seriously considering it unless the production got a sudden influx of money where they could afford a Seyfried versus say a Duff or a Kevin Zegers.

And just to clear things up, this isn't technically a remake of "Bonnie & Clyde" but instead is inspired by news clippings (we're not making this up) that Holly found in an abandoned house on her family's property. So it must be a completely and totally different story then, right? Anyway, the producers are keeping their plans to have this thing in front of cameras by the end of the year so we'll see what kind of cast they rustle up soon enough.
