It’s a new haircut, new style of music, and possibly a new TV gig type of a year for Miley!
The 19-year-old singer/actress is reportedly in negotiations to play the female lead in “Bonnie & Clyde”. The new miniseries is written by John Rice and Joe Batteer and is being produced by “Smash” executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan. The show is backed by both History and Lifetime channels.
An opportunity to star as Bonnie Parker in the infamous “Bonnie & Clyde” story will allow Miley to further branch away from her Disney teen queen image. Considering that Lifetime has found success in casting former teen stars to act in classic tales – Lindsay Lohan in “Liz & Dick”, anyone? – getting Miley in their roaster is only the next logical step.
A “Bonnie & Clyde” remake is way overdue in Hollywood. Remember back in 2009 when Hilary Duff was set to star as Bonnie Parker in the film, but was ultimately paid $100,000 to walk away from the role when she got pregnant? Let’s see if Miley is the chosen star to deliver the highly-anticipated series.
