You cannot make a movie about "Bonnie and Clyde" after 1967. Yes, it was loosely based on the lives of Depression-era criminals Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, but Arthur Penn's classic film starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway is the legacy of those two criminals. Any other telling of their story is a disservice. That's not to romanticize them or put them up on a pedestal, but their story has been told better than anyone else can possibly tell it. Some folks may like to call "The Dark Knight" a cinematic revolution, but "Bonnie and Clyde" was a real cinematic revolution. You know how I know: it's on the cover of a book called PICTURES AT A REVOLUTION*.
But that's not going to stop Tonya S. Holly from directing "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" starring Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers. I don't know about Zegers but I do know that Duff can't act. At all. It would be hard enough for a real actress to step out of Faye Dunaway's shadow for this role. And while Holly may claim that this isn't a remake and that it promises to "showcase times in the couple's lives not seen onscreen before." Do they not realize that people don't actually care about the actual biography of Bonnie and Clyde but what they represent that makes them interesting? But by all means, be historically accurate. That will work out spendidly.
*It's actually a fantastic read and I encourage everyone to check it out.
