Hilary Duff may have seen her planned screen turn as Bonnie Parker nixed due to pregnancy, but the erstwhile Lizzie Maguire will soon appear in the Polish brothers ensemble comedy Stay Cool. The 2009 Tribeca entry concerns a thirtysomething novelist (Mark Polish) who returns to his Sacramento hometown only to be confronted with the colorful ex-flames and friends still living there and the hot-to-trot high school senior (Duff) trying to jump his bones. Get a first look at Duff's would-be teen seductress (and her failed attempt at seduction) in Movieline's exclusive clip.
Here at Movieline, we've seen some pretty random casts take the screen. Take for instance, the WTF-ery of The Big Bang (James Van Der Beek, Antonio Banderas and Snoop Dogg) or the brain teaser talent pool on Dorothy of Oz (Lea Michele, Kelsey Grammer and Patrick Stewart). But what can possibly be said about a trailer featuring Winona Ryder, Hilary Duff, Chevy Chase, Jon Cryer, Josh Holloway and Sean Astin acting out a second-rate Grosse Point Blank plot? Take a look at the trailer for Stay Cool and then we'll try to articulate our thoughts.
