Hilary StuffOver a year ago, Hilary Duff made headlines when it was announced that she'd co-star with 'Transamerica''s Kevin Zegers in 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,' a new take on the tale of bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. The project, which is to be directed by Tonya S. Holly from her own script, was said to be a new adaptation, and not a remake of the 1967 film.

But now that the news has officially settled, is the project still happening?

"Hopefully," Duff told Moviefone while promoting her ABC Family movie, 'Beauty and the Briefcase.' "I don't know. We've been waiting for about a year and a half now. I'm still attached to the project, and Kevin Zegers is set to play Clyde. He's such a great actor. I love him ... So, hopefully something will happen there, but right now it's kind of on the back burner."

Duff also revealed that filming hasn't started on the project, adding, "We don't even have a date to start. That's what's so hard. Information gets leaked these days, and then if things don't end up happening, or if they take years to happen -- which is really normal for a movie -- you're kind of stuck saying, 'No. Not yet, not yet, not yet.' And that's been the case with this one."

Later this year, Duff can be seen opposite Val Kilmer and Kris Kristofferson in the drama 'Provinces of Night.' 'Beauty and the Briefcase' airs Sun., Apr. 18, 8PM on ABC Family.
