Well, with Hilary Duff pregnant and $100,000 dollars richer for not starring in the ill-advised, upcoming remake-but-it's-not-a-remake “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” the producers have now found their replacement to take on the role that made Faye Dunaway a star: Lindsay Pulsipher. Wait, who?

Despite Amanda Seyfried getting the movie some ink with rumors that she turned down the role, the indie production has gone with a name that is even less well known than both Duff's. "True Blood" fans will know the actress best from her stint on the show as Crystal Norris, the love interest of Jason Stackhouse. Outside of that she has a smattering of credits including a role on the short-lived Patrick Swayze show "The Beast." But yeah, Pulsipher is pretty much an unknown.

Anyhow, 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. Seriously. So it's like, totally different. Anyway, production is gearing up for the end of year and since Kevin Zegers, previously slated for the co-starring role has dropped out, we'll have to wait and see who has the unenviable task of filling Warren Beatty's shoes.

    Lindsay Pulsipher was a very good hilibilly on True Blood. I can see her bringing the appropriate edge and complexity to this role.

    Never heard of this actress. Straight to DVD.
    The producers are idiots. They announced that Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers would star in it back in January 2009 and they have subsequently done absolutely nothing for two and a half years.When are they finally going to make ‘The Story of Bonnie and Clyde’? In a couple of months? Why not a year? How about a couple of decades?
