While we'll have to leave it to our dreams as to what the original cast of Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers would have done to "The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde," producers are still pushing on with their remake -- that they insist is not a remake -- and have now landed a young, relatively unknown actor to try and fill the shoes of Warren Beatty. Can't say the kid lacks ambition.

While we'll have to leave it to our dreams as to what the original cast of Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers would have done to "The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde," producers are still pushing on with their remake -- that they insist is not a remake -- and have now landed a young, relatively unknown actor to try and fill the shoes of Warren Beatty. Can't say the kid lacks ambition.

Sean Faris, who did a brief stint on "The Vampire Diaries" and starred in the short lived shows "Reunion" and "Life As You Know It" will now star opposite the previously cast Lindsay Pulispher, with the duo making up Bonnie and Clyde. Producer/writer/director Tonya S. Holly is plowing ahead with the project, which will not be based on Arthur Penn's classic but instead on news clippings that Holly found in an abandoned house on her family’s property. No joke. Variety also stresses that the film will focus on other aspects of their lives, but we'd guess that will probably (eventually) include robbing banks and stuff. But if it doesn't, then this movie is an even worse idea because who wants to see a movie about Bonnie and Clyde not wielding guns?

Anyway, it seems the casting drama is over and this continues to move ahead. We didn't think there would be a worse idea than the "American Psycho" remake, but we were wrong.
