Hilary Duff’s pregnancy may be fantastic news for the mom-to-be, but could it be costing her movie roles?
Recent news suggests this may be what’s happening.
On Monday morning, TMZ reported that Duff, 23, has been released from the developing film, The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.
Although the blonde beauty was cast to play a bank robbing heroine, her pregnancy announcement throws a major wrench in the indie’s planned production schedule.
“Unfortunately, we are now faced with scheduling conflicts with our leads Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers.” the producers told US Weekly.
“We were told that Duff would not be available until June 2012 and that Zegers would not be available until January of the new year. Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers, it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule. Therefore, we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles.”
Although the movie will continue on without Hilary, director Tonya Holly commented, “We know that she’ll be a wonderful mom. So we are really happy for her.”
This is Hilary’s first pregnancy with Canadian hockey star husband, Mike Comrie.
