Bonnie & Clyde returning to the big screen

Movie News

”Limitless” director Neil Burger is set to bring a new version of the Depression Era outlaws Bonnie and Clyde to the big screen with screenwriter Sheldon Turner and producers Sean and Bryan Furst.

Deadline reports that they’ve made a deal with financier Marissa McMahon to fund development on ”Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde”, a book by Jeff Guinn published last year by Simon & Schuster.

The trade goes on to say that Burger’s version will have several differences in comparison to the 1967 version that starred Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty.

For one thing, the outlaws were just 22 when they were gunned down by a former Texas Ranger after they’d killed seven people. The first person Clyde Barrow killed was the cell mate who had sexually abused him repeatedly. Barrow had a strong code of honor: when a lifer in the prison took the rap for the killing, Barrow and his gang broke him out. The book also suggests that Bonnie Parker was a prostitute before joining up with and eventually going down in a hail of bullets with Barrow.
