Singer/actress Hilary Duff has landed her most challenging acting job to date - she is to take over the role made famous by Faye Dunaway in a new version of Bonnie And Clyde. Duff will take on the role of Bonnie in a new adaptation of the legendary story and will be starring opposite Air Bud actor Kevin Zegers.
The new movie, titled The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, will be directed by Tonya S. Holly, who has stressed it will be an entirely new movie, rather than a remake of the 1967 classic, which also starred Warren Beatty.
Duff shot to fame in Disney TV series Lizzie Maguire, which was taken to the big screen in 2003. Her most recent movie roles include last year's (08) War, Inc alongside John Cusack.
The star has also landed the lead in upcoming sitcom Barely Legal.
