Emilia Clarke & Nicholas Hoult Will Be Bonnie And Clyde
In Go Down Together

Nicholas-Hoult-Emilia-Clarke-Go-Down-Together

Charismatic, chaotic criminals Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow have been the subject of several films and TV series, most famously in Arthur Penn’s 1967 outing starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. But that doesn't deter Michael Sucsy, who has revisionist tale Go Down Together set up with Nicholas Hoult and Emilia Clarke aboard to play the duo.

Up In The Air’s Sheldon Turner worked with Proof’s David Auburn to adapt Jeff Guinn’s tome Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde. In development for a few years now, it’ll chronicle a new take on the exploits of the bank robbers, who left at least seven people dead as they held up banks across the Depression-era South in the US. Until, of course, they were famously brought down in a shoot-out with authorities.

It's something of a change of pace for Sucsy, who previously directed TV's acclaimed Grey Gardens and the better-than-you'd-imagine romantic drama The Vow. But the casting seems promising: Clarke and Hoult have charisma to burn and are closer in age to the young criminals than many portrayals before - although considerably better looking, as is traditional for film adaptations.

Clarke, who is back on our screens as Daenerys Targaryen on Game Of Thrones, is filming the new Terminator: Genesis, playing Sarah Connor in the time-jumping latest entry for the killer cyborg franchise. Hoult will return to cinemas next week as Hank “Beast” McCoy in X-Men: Days Of Future Past and has Kill Your Friends, Autobahn, Dark Places and Mad Max: Fury Road in different stages of production.
