Neil Burger in talks to direct a new Bonnie and Clyde film

07.26.2011

There have been many variations of the classic Bonnie and Clyde story told in Hollywood over the years. Most have been shit, but the best has always remained Arthur Penn's 1967 classic BONNIE AND CLYDE, which holds up to this day thanks to a terrific cast and two wonderful performances from leads Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty.

Today, Variety is reporting that director Neil Burger (UNCHARTED: DRAKE'S FORTUNE, THE ILLUSIONIST) is in talks to helm a new version, an adaptation of the Jeff Guinn book Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde, written by UP IN THE AIR scribe Sheldon Turner. Guinn's book follows "Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, as the young lovers rob banks throughout the Depression-era South, leaving at least seven bodies in their wake." So, a remake basically.

As you may have heard, Burger is now in charge of the UNCHARTED film, much to the relief of fans of the video game everywhere. Screenwriter Sheldon Turner meanwhile is readying to make his directorial debut with the film BY VIRTUE FALL, a revenge drama with Colin Farrell and Eric Bana attached to star.

I thought they were already re-making Bonnie and Clyde with Hillary Duff, i was looking forward to that so i could laugh at how bad it was.

this could be good, Burger is a talented director. Interview with an Assassin was great and he's continued making good movies since.

Olivia Wilde?

Bonnie & Clyde is the movie that made me a hardcore Faye Dunaway fan. The only actress that springs to mind to play Bonnie is Olivia Wilde, but that may just be because the two women share a very vague physical resemblance (mainly the eyes and bone structure). But, why not? I think she could pull it off better than most.

The original Bonnie and Clyde is one of the best movies ever made, but I am open to another telling of the story if they stick more closely to the real events. The original movie completely neglected the numerous times Clyde was caught and escaped from prison. If the movie is similar to the original, then don't bother.
