Hilary Duff has reportedly been dropped from The Story of Bonnie And Clyde because her pregnancy clashes with the film schedule.

The 23-year-old actress and singer and her Canadian hockey player husband Mike Comrie, 30, just revealed they are expecting their first child together, but Hilary was due to star in a new film version of Bonnie And Clyde opposite Gossip Girl's Kevin Zegers.

Producers of the film told Us Weekly: "While production has been pushed several times due to financial, scheduling and other factors such as tornados devastating some of our locations, we are currently gearing up to start production later this year."

It went on: "Unfortunately, we now are faced with scheduling conflicts with our leads Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers. We were told that Duff would not be available until June 2012 and that Zegers would not be available until January of the new year.

"Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers, it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule. Therefore, we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles. Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking."

Faye Dunaway earned an Oscar nomination playing one half of the infamous bank robbing duo in 1967's Bonnie And Clyde.

Director Tonya Holly said: "It's down to money and producers. They want the product delivered. [Hilary] still loves the script! These guys aren't really interested in waiting. We know she'll be a wonderful mom. So we are really happy for her."

Hilary will next be seen with Charlie Sheen in comedy She Wants Me.
