Hope.........

At the risk of jinxing it and ensuring it enters fast-pace pre-production tomorrow (oh, how the movie gods like to spite me!) it is nonetheless Cinema Romantico's duty to report the news.

John Scott Lewinski, writing for that bastion of top notch journalism AskMen.com, recently conducted an interview with one Hilary Duff, posing, amongst others, this question: "You've said you're looking for more roles to challenge you as an actress. What are you looking to do next?"

Ms. Duff responded: "There are so many projects I’m considering - different productions at different stages of development. The problem is the rumors that get out there and get reported. I’ve heard it reported that I’m going to star in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. But that’s an example of how rumors get out there and get out of control. That’s a project that’s still in development and I’m not scheduled to shoot it anytime soon."

Faye Dunaway rejoiced when she heard the news!
Gasp! I quote again, "(T)hat's an example of how rumors get out there and get out of control." Is Hilary Duff taking the role she has no business taking of Bonnie Parker just....a rumor? "That's a project that's still in development and I'm not scheduled to shoot it anytime soon." Can we speculate on the possibility this project will never get out of development and Ms. Duff won't shoot it anytime, never mind anytime soon?

Oh, what glorious news! Maybe, just maybe, we will avoid this cinematic armageddon and live splendidly in the forthcoming year of 2011. If we all light a candle and say a prayer....  

Keep the faith.

Challenge Hillary Duff as an actress? Just give her a non-speaking role in Scream 5!

Oh, man, I love that idea! You're right! Hilary Duff was tailor-made for non-speaking parts! If only she'd lived in the silent era.
