Some Guy Named Sean Faris Is Your New Clyde In ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ Remake

Some Guy Named Sean Faris Is Your New Clyde In 'Bonnie & Clyde' Remake

While we’ll have to leave it to our dreams as to what the original cast of Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers would have done to “The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde,” producers are still pushing on with their remake — that they insist is not a remake — and have now landed a young, relatively unknown actor to try and fill the shoes of Warren Beatty. Can’t say the kid lacks ambition.

Sean Faris, who did a brief stint on “The Vampire Diaries” and starred in the short lived shows “Reunion” and “Life As You Know It” will now star opposite the previously cast Lindsay Pulispher, with the duo making up Bonnie and Clyde. Producer/writer/director Tonya S. Holly is plowing ahead with the project, which will not be based on Arthur Penn‘s classic but instead on news clippings that Holly found in an abandoned house on her family’s property. No joke. Variety also stresses that the film will focus on other aspects of their lives, but we’d guess that will probably (eventually) include robbing banks and stuff. But if it doesn’t, then this movie is an even worse idea because who wants to see a movie about Bonnie and Clyde not wielding guns?

Anyway, it seems the casting drama is over and this continues to move ahead. We didn’t think there would be a worse idea than the “American Psychoremake, but we were wrong.

I've read the script also,Think it's got awesome potential it's a great story


sorry if there are mistakes in my spelling, forget my glasses


I want to see a movie about Bonnie and Clyde, that tells us who they really were and what really happened. Even if it means no guns. For one Bonnie didn't shoot a weapon at anytime during those 2 years. she never stepped to to a bank to rob it either. that's a fact


First of all, Kevin Jagernauth, those who can, do and those who cant, teach or write about it. Leave the casting and movie making to the pro's and you go on living in your mothers basement commenting about things you haven't any knowledge of…who do you think you are Fox news? Get a real job Kevin, and as far as this being a remake I've read the script and I can assure you it's not.


Among this generation, including the cast themselves as well very might to say, do they know about what is Bonnie & Clyde for real? ridiculous
