Hilary's new movie?

Provinces of Night
The latest issue of Production Weekly exclusively reveals the casting of Hilary in yet another movie! This time, it’s actually a book adaptation and it’s a first for Hilary’s films. I’m not 100% sure about this, but you can consider the fact that Production Weekly was the same source that revealed Hilary’s role as Bonnie in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde; and at first we didn’t want to believe it, but it turned out to be true. So, you’ve got to trust Production Weekly on this for now. Or maybe it’s a terrible plot where Production Weekly tried to gain our trust and now they’re playing around with our heads? Hah, I doubt it.

Hilary has been cast in yet another movie, and it’s a big change. It’s pretty much exciting, too because I think I’ve heard of the novel before. I never bothered reading it, though. But if this becomes official, I’m definitely reading that novel.

Hilary will star alongside a not-much-credited actor, Toby Keith in a book-to-movie adaptation called Provinces of Night by William Gay. The movie has a novel of the same title about the romance between Fleming Bloodworth, the youngest of his damaged brood, and Raven Lee Halfacre, the prettiest girl in a three-county area. That is what Hilary might possible play. These two put to shame most cliched young lovers in contemporary literature. And ultimately, it’s Gay’s (author) heady language that gives them their heat.

It’s quite a Southern-themed movie which could turn Hilary into a hillbilly for a shooting, hah. Plus, she’s from Texas anyway, so that fits.

According to this week’s Production Weekly, Duff will be starring in Provinces of the Night, a movie so Southern-fried it features a banjo-playing vagrant and a wife who ran off with a peddler. While that’s all well and good, it’s the fact that Duff will be co-starring alongside Toby Keith that gives me pause. Sure, Keith is authentically Southern, but he’s most recently starred in Beer For My Horses, and hasn’t been given much credit as an actor. Not to say that everything Hilary Duff does should be to make us like her, but if she wants to win a war of words with Faye Dunaway, this doesn’t seem like the place to start.

The film will be directed by Shane Dax Taylor, who doesn’t have too many credits to his name. It’s unclear where Duff will even come into play in the story, but given that she’s top-billed, she must have a sizable part. Check out the plot description below and see if you can figure it out. I’d bet on her being Raven Lee Halfacre, but I really have no idea.

“It’s 1952, and E.F. Bloodworth is finally coming home to Ackerman’s Field, Tennessee. Itinerant banjo picker and volatile vagrant, he’s been gone ever since he gunned down a deputy thirty years before. Two of his sons won’t be home to greet him: Warren lives a life of alcoholic philandering down in Alabama, and Boyd has gone to Detroit in vengeful pursuit of his wife and the peddler she ran off with. His third son, Brady, is still home, but he’s an addled soothsayer given to voodoo and bent on doing whatever it takes to keep E.F. from seeing the wife he abandoned. Only Fleming, E.F.’s grandson, is pleased with the old man’s homecoming, but Fleming’s life is soon to careen down an unpredictable path hewn by the beautiful Raven Lee Halfacre.”
