So this is happening, and I guess you better just just deal with it. The story of “Bonnie & Clyde,” immortalized in Arthur Penn‘s iconic 1967 film, is now being told again by Bruce Beresford (“Peace, Love & Misunderstanding,” “Mao’s Last Dancer” and “The Contract“) with Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the outlaws. The results?
Well, see for yourself below. A two-part, miniseries production between A&E, Lifetime and History, the budget looks certainly small screen—HBO this isn’t. And really, it doesn’t make much of a case for standing on its own outside of the movie we already know. That being said, we like the leads, and with Holly Hunter and William Hurt in support, we suppose this might get a watch out of morbid curiosity from our end.
“Bonnie & Clyde” arrives on your TV on Sunday, December 8th and Monday, December 9th at 9 PM. Watch below. [Deadline]
