Bonnie And Clyde To Get A Seedier And Darker Movie

Monday, July 25 by
 

Bonnie and Clyde is a beloved classic, which makes me wonder why it took so long for someone to get around to remaking it. Wait no more, fans of stuff being remade! The project will be helmed by Limitless director Neil Burger, based on a script from Sheldon Turner. The source material for the script, Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde actually differs quite a bit from the 1967 film starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. It reportedly doesn’t paint the duo with such a glamourous brush, so I guess one could say it’s “gritty.”

The book posits that Clyde was sexually abused in prison and Bonnie was a whore. Ok. Fine. I’m sold. I will see this film. No word on casting or timeline here, but the wheels are in motion, and with the pedigree of the story, and the recent modest success of Limitless, expect these roles to be a hot ticket in Hollywood.
