Miley Cyrus Won't Be In That Lifetime 'Bonnie & Clyde' Movie After All, But Bruce Beresford Will Direct

Bonnie & Clyde Miley Cyrus Bruce Beresford

It's a good news/bad news sort of thing with Lifetime's brewing remake/retelling/whatever of "Bonnie & Clyde." So let's just get it into it...

Remember how Miley Cyrus was in talks for the role of Bonnie? Well, you can axe that notion (phew). There's no word on what caused negotiations to break down, but maybe her fiance Liam Hemsworth showed her Arthur Penn's original movie and she realized stepping into the role made famous by Faye Dunaway in a schlocky cable version of the story probably wasn't the best idea. Speaking of schlock, the project does have a director now in Bruce Beresford. He's the guy who has directed movies your parents like over the last couple of decades, like "Mao's Last Dancer," "Driving Miss Daisy," "Double Jeopardy," and "Peace Love & Misunderstanding." An odd choice of helmer for this gritty crime tale, but he's likely pretty affordable.

The project is gearing up to be a four-hour miniseries, so maybe it will be a respectable run through the story. But then again, when casting starts with Miley Cyrus, maybe not. No word yet on when it will air, but if the cable channel can crank out Lindsay Lohan's "Liz & Dick" is less than a year, you will probably be able to DVR this and watch it drunk sometime in 2013.
