Alexandria sues movie company for failing to shoot "Bonnie and Clyde"

Posted: Updated:
ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- The City of Alexandria is suing Cypress Moon Productions and its owner, Tonya Holly, for failing to shoot the movie "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" in the city.

Back in 2009, the city paid Holly and her production company $50,000 to shoot the movie in the city.

The film was supposed to star Hilary Duff. But, it never got off the ground.

The city says in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that Holly and the company breached the contract by failing to shoot the movie, as well as, failing to provide progress reports and open a production office in Alexandria.

So, the city is asking for the $50,000 to be returned, as well as, court costs.

News Channel 5 reached out to Tonya Holly about the lawsuit. She told us that she received a letter in the mail two days ago saying that the city planned to sue her if she didn't return the money, but she "had no clue" that they filed Wednesday and that she's "completely shocked about the lawsuit."

Holly also told us that she had every intention of shooting "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde," but "this changes everything."
