Hillary Duff robs banks and kills people (but no kinky stuff).

Given that people have become sick of remakes, at least one director has found a solution: Just don't call it one:
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.
As a sidenote, this is an interesting role choice for two squeaky clean teen film actors. Glamorous gangsters or not, they're still playing killers. And since American society generally has a stronger stomach for violence than sex, I'm guessing they're not going anywhere near the whole impotent-Clyde-watches-Bonnie-have-sex-with-others aspect of the story.
