Miley Cyrus Ditches Bonnie And Clyde Mini-Series

October 11, 2012 02:38 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

Was Miley Cyrus ever actually considering taking on the role of Bonnie Parker, or have we just been Punk’d? Whether or not the former Disney star showed an iota of interest in becoming the new Faye Dunaway, it appears that part will go to someone else. Hmm, sounds like the History Channel dodged the bullet this time!

Lovers of the classic 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde can finally let out a sigh of relief: Miley Cyrus will not be playing Bonnie Parker in the upcoming History Channel remake. We had a hard time believing the Disney star had been considered for the role in the first place, but no need to worry now. What remains unclear is the cause of the breakdown in negotiations. Perhaps the History Channel wasn’t willing to shell out the big bucks for a less-than-stellar actress?

So, what exactly do we know about the mini-series? Unfortunately, not much. The project is being headed up by Smash executive producers Neil Moran and Craig Zadan, but thus far, the two have been pretty quiet about the casting process.  We recently did learn that the Oscar-nominated Bruce Beresford was confirmed as the director for the four-hour series. In light of Beresford’s participation, it’s probably a good thing that Miley has dropped out. Somehow, we have a hard time seeing these two working together successfully.

Do you think Miley Cyrus has missed her chance at a breakout role that could actually taken seriously? Or is the remake of Bonnie and Clyde better off without the former Hannah Montana? Feel free to share your thoughts (and ideas for good Bonnie Parker candidates!) in the comments section below.

    Thank god she won’t be in the mini-series! she’s honestly a terrible actress who brings nothing to the table.
    We did indeed dodge a bullet there!

    I think Miley Cyrus would have been an amazing actress for this part. She is always great in every movie and television show she has ever done. Miley joining the remake of Bonnie and Clyde would have made her big girl break. Most of the movies and tv shows Miley has recently don’t they haven’t been big breaks for her. POOR MILEY!!!!

    Well, she doesn’t even need to work for all the money she HAS made from Hannah Montana and previous roles. I think she is getting better at acting, and I love her movies/roles.

    Just because somebody played a part 50 years ago doesn’t meaning someone else doing it is trying to be them!

    Miley is a lot more talented than people give her credit for. She’s shed her Disney Princess image and as a Discordian American Princess could make a great Bonnie Parker. Now Justin Bieber as Clyde Barrow….

    Miley would have rocked those tight 1930′s skirts…and those plump lips look great in any year…she can act too.

    It is probably a good thing she will not be playing Bonnie… not that she is a bad actress, just that I myself do not think she is a good choice for the part, I would like to see Reese Witherspoon Play Bonnie, she did a great job as June Carter, she has that whole southern thing down pat, JMO !
