Tonya Holly Stabbed in Back?

Trust is out the window!!!! Time to get out the boulders and build the wall, so that no one can break through. People claiming to have your back....be careful for the knife up their sleeve.
Just when you think that you have seen it all....
Tonya S. Holly

If you live under a rock or are over the age of 30, you may not be aware that local film maker Tonya Suzanne Holly, owner of Cypress Moon Productions in Sheffield, has been planning her version of the Bonnie Parker/Clyde Barrow legend for approximately two years. The biggest draw for some fans, and certainly investors, was the prospect of Hilary Duff starring as the infamous gun moll. Now that the married Miss Duff has announced her pregnancy, all plans seem out the window.

A few days before announcing her pregnancy, Duff proclaimed at the Kendra Scott jewelry opening she was ready to start filming. A few days after Duff's pregnancy announcement, Holly wrote the above words on her Facebook page. Curiously, as of noon yesterday, the studio's representative Anita Brazil Pace announced filming would still begin with Duff. Then Holly abruptly announced what amounted to an intention to recast.

Our take? They could make a movie about the making of this movie. Cypress Moon is good for the local economy and Ms. Holly's last film When I Find the Ocean featured many locals. Let's hope B&C gets underway soon.
