LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Hilary Duff has signed on to star in an independent film about notorious gangsters Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, Variety.com said.

Duff, 21, is slated to co-star with Kevin Zegers in the movie, which was written and will be directed by "When I Find the Ocean" filmmaker Tonya S. Holly.

"The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" -- which is to be shot in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama -- is not intended to be a remake of the iconic 1967 film starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. Holly told Variety.com she began writing her version of the story after she stumbled across some old newspaper articles about the real-life criminal couple.

Duff's film credits include "Material Girls" and "War, Inc." Zegers has starred in several "Air Bud" movies, as well as "Transamerica" and "Fifty Dead Men Walking."
