Have you ever compared Miley Cyrus to Faye Dunaway? Thanks to a new project from Lifetime and the History Channel, that comparison is now inevitable, since Cyrus is reportedly in talks to star as the infamous bank robber Bonnie Parker in a new "Bonnie and Clyde" miniseries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Deadline also reports that the four-hour biopic was originally developed for History Channel in the vein of their recent hit, "Hatfields & McCoys," but since the network is now a sibling of Lifetime under the A&E Networks umbrella, the project will be aired for both the male-skewing History audience and the female-centric Lifetime viewership.
The series is being executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who are set up at Sony Pictures TV. According to THR, Cyrus is reportedly meeting with directors for the role. Aside from a recent guest appearance on "Two and a Half Men," this will be Cyrus' first major TV role since "Hannah Montana." No word yet on who would play her partner in crime, Clyde Barrow. Lifetime currently has another high-profile biopic in the works -- the Lindsay Lohan vehicle "Liz and Dick," focusing on the tumultuous relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton -- which is scheduled to air in November.
What do you think of Miley Cyrus as Bonnie? Who do you think should play her Clyde?
