BUZZ: "Ugly Betty" Postponed, Duff in "Bonnie & Clyde," "Green Hornet" Axed, and more

• "Ugly Betty" is getting bumped out of the Thursday 8pm slot to bolster ratings for award-winning "Samantha Who?" and ABC's new mid-season replacement "In the Motherhood." America Ferrara's series will return once those shows have finished their season, which estimates a June revival.

• You may have heard that there's a Bonnie and Clyde prequel in the works, begging the question, "Who'll fill their legendary shoes?" As of today it seems that they're shooting for a younger generation, with Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers (Transamerica) in negotiations for the lead roles. The film won't be a remake, but a telling of a specific moment in their lives.

Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams have agreed to slash their salaries in half to star in their upcoming movie Morning Glory. Isn't it blasphemous to ask Indiana Jones to take a paycut? Ok, maybe not after that last movie.

Seth Rogen's recreation of The Green Hornet is rumored to be benched for 2009. The studio is branding it too risky, especially since the director/Kato actor dropped out.
