Lots of changes regarding this film. First, back in July, it was announced that “Limitless” director Neil Burger would be directing a new version of “Bonnie and Clyde” but apparently that didn’t work out, because according to THR, Tonya S. Holly will both direct the film and wrote the script.
And then, waaaaaay back in 2009, it was also announced that Kevin Zegers would be joining Hilary Duff in the role of Clyde with Duff playing the role of Bonnie made famous by Faye Dunaway.
Well, that’s not the case for either of them. Zegers dropped out because he wouldn’t be able to begin filming until January even though filming begins later this year & Duff left the project after finding out she was pregnant and said it was due to “scheduling conflicts” all that, so now, Duff has been replaced by “True Blood”‘s Lindsay Pulsipher.
This is her :
Said Cypress Moon Studios, “We are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role,” says producer Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions in a statement. “This is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives in history.”
Filming will take place in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and likely Missouri.
Here’s how the film is being described:
Bonnie Parker wanted something different…something exciting. Clyde Barrow wanted to be remembered. When their worlds collided, the rest became history.
In a small Texas town in the 1930’s Depression, Bonnie Parker had dreams of becoming an actress or perhaps a poet. She knew more than anything that she wanted out – out of poverty, away from Texas, and she wanted a love story that would never end.
Clyde Barrow grew up poor. He loved guns, cars, and getting noticed. It was his love for the finer things that would cost him his freedom. It is his loss of freedom that changes the boy to a man, and a man into a killer.
The Story of Bonnie and Clyde begins with a love that cannot be broken, but Clyde’s love of money and excitement and his fear of returning to the Texas prison system leads them both into a world of violence.
The story unravels, revealing a love story that has surpassed the decades. Every moment leads the couple into a web of no return, which will leave the audience breathless.
This is a new account of the lives of the infamous Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This telling will uncover times in their lives that have never been seen on the big screen before.
What began as a beautiful love story, ends as one of the most remembered ambushes in history. This film will take you into the life and times of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. This is The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.
