Miley Cyrus has been tapped to play the infamous bank robber, ‘Bonnie Parker’ in Bonnie & Clyde for a 4-hour mini series for the History channel. The series would be aired on the History channel along with Lifetime in an effort to get male and female audiences. You can watch Cyrus’ return to TV in her guest starring role on Two and a Half Men.
According to Deadline,
Miley Cyrus is in negotiations to play the female lead in a new Bonnie & Clyde miniseries, executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. In the biggest synergy move between new siblings History and Lifetime, the four-hour mini, originally developed for History, will now air on both male-driven History and female-focused Lifetime. This is the first time A+E Networks is producing a program to be shared by two of its channels in an effort to reach both female and male audiences with the classic story of two of America’s most famous outlaws.
Bonnie & Clyde, from Sony Pictures TV and Zadan and Meron’s studio-based Storyline Entertainment, was written by John Rice and Joe Batteer based on the true story of bank robbing couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. In the most famous screen version of the 1930s story to date, the 1967 Oscar-winning movie, Bonnie was played by Faye Dunaway.
