Production is slated to begin this summer in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.
The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, a new character-driven adaptation (not a remake), tells the thrilling story of the notorious duo. Set during the 1930’s Depression, the film uncovers many aspects of their lives that have never before been seen on the big screen.
Duff, who will play Bonnie Parker, first gained worldwide recognition in such popular TV shows as Disney’s Lizzie McGuire as well as feature films including Cheaper By the Dozen and Raise Your Voice. Duff is also an accomplished singer whose top selling albums include her latest “Most Wanted.” Kevin Zegers will star as Clyde Barrow. Zegers is an accomplished young actor steadily proving the range of his talent. He has starred in such popular films as the Air Bud film franchise and MVP: Most Valuable Primate. Zegers recently starred in the Academy Award-nominated Transamerica and The Jane Austen Book Club.
Tonya S. Holly, owner of Cypress Moon Studios, will direct the film that she also wrote based on her early fascination with the lovers turned fugitives, and her years of extensive research. “I have lived with The Story of Bonnie and Clyde in my mind for years,” said Holly who was first intrigued by the historical legacies after finding old newspapers with articles about their exploits in an abandoned house on her families property. “It started as a research paper in high school and grew over the years as a story I had to write and share with the world.”
Tonya is one of the busiest executives in the entertainment industry. In just four short years, she has established Cypress Moon as a fully operational state- of-the-art film production and recording studio.
Her goal is for Cypress Moon Studios is to become one of the most active independent companies producing film, television and music. Located in Sheffield, Alabama overlooking the Tennessee River, Cypress Moon was initially formed to focus on the development and production of feature films, and is now rapidly expanding with a slate of new productions to include both homegrown and acquired projects.
