It's no snake-in-the-pants role, but Hillary Duff's big sis, Haylie Duff (7th Heaven), might sign on to a new indie film to play a psycho ex girlfriend. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Duff and Sam Huntington (the new Jimmy Olson) are negotiating for starring roles in Tug. This is a new indie from writer/director Abram Makowka, which is making use of Michigan's new 40% tax incentive program.

Set, appropriately, in small-town Michigan, the film focuses "on a guy (Sam Huntington) whose life begins to unravel when he is torn between staying with his current girlfriend or going back to his psycho ex (Duff)." This is a comedy/romance, so I imagine his relationship with his ex isn't abusive, which means we're getting more funny "psycho ladies." I'm hoping that there's a lot more to the story, and that the initial vagueness is just making it sound typical, but we'll have to wait and see whether Makowka offers something fresh, or gives us another imbalanced-woman romcom. On the plus side, the cast also includes Maulik Pancholy (Sanjay on Weeds).

Production is set to begin in June.
