'True Blood' Star Replaces Hilary Duff in 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde'


Lindsay Pulsipher, who plays Crystal Norris on the HBO's hit series, is set to take over Bonnie Parker role from the wife of Mike Comrie in the Tonya S. Holly-directed film project.

Director Tonya S. Holly has found a replacement for Hilary Duff. The filmmaker/producer, who is the president of Cypress Moon Productions, tapped "True Blood" star Lindsay Pulsipher to play female lead character, Bonnie, in her upcoming movie project, "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde".

Announcing the casting news, Holly said in a statement, "We are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde." She added, "Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role. This is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives in history."

Pulsipher herself is known for playing Crystal Norris on the HBO's hit series. She is currently shooting a miniseries for History Channel, "The Hatfields and McCoys", along with Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton. As for her big-screen stint, she was starring in "The Oregonian" which was screened during the Sundance Film Festival last January.

The forthcoming "Bonnie and Clyde" movie promises to uncover times in the lives of the infamous outlaw duo, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, that have never been seen on the big screen before. In addition to serving behind the lens, Holly also provides the screenplay as well as taking on the productional duty. The movie is set to be shot in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Missouri, and is planned to start filming later this year.

Back in August, Holly announced that Duff and Kevin Zegers, who was expected to play Clyde, have exited the project due to scheduling conflict. Of the speculation saying that she dumped the wife of Mike Comrie from the project because of her pregnancy, Holly claimed that the issue was "not true at all."
