Former Disney teen Hilary Duff is set to play the role of Bonnie in a remake of the classic "Bonnie and Clyde" -- and original bad girl Faye Dunaway is not happy about her successor!
Dunaway, who portrayed the bank robber in the 1967 original, was reportedly miffed when she heard that Duff had landed the role -- reportedly saying, "Couldn't they at least cast a real actress?"
When Duff heard what Dunaway said about her, the claws came out -- and she suggested that Faye's days in the spotlight were up! "I think that my fans that are going to see the movie don't even know who she is," Hilary told E! News, "So you know, I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now too." Mrrrrrrrrrrrow!
"The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" is scheduled to be released in 2010, plenty of time for this feud to play out!
It is absolutely horrid that they casted Hillary Duff in a remake of such a classic. Hillary Duff. I would love to see anyone tell me with a straight face that she is a legitimate actress. Name one movie where she delivered a performance that was even watchable let alone good. She’s a sub par singer and an even worse actress. She’s the worst possible teen fluff and this isn’t some sort of stupid teens looking to get a girl movie so what is she doing in it? The movie will fail, they will realize they screwed up and this mistake will never be made again. Go away Hillary, spare yourself and those unfortunate enough to watch this.

I agree with Jonathan (and Faye) and go farther to say that the disney stable in the last 20 has been proof that with enough marketing, a cast that yells to act(like oxy clean guy), and neon colors onscreen, anyone can be a STAAAAHH.. no matter how incompetent they are. and Disney channel is the single most irritating channel i am aware of b/c of this.
Kudos to Faye for a well earned career.
Ill be surprised if they think about hiwwowy duff in 5 years let alone the 40 that Faye has..
