Miley Cyrus to star in 'Bonnie and Clyde' miniseries?

Miley Cyrus could next appear in a Lifetime/History miniseries about 20th century outlaws Bonnie and Clyde.

The former “Hannah Montana” star is in talks to play Bonnie Parker, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Actress Faye Dunaway took on the role for 1967’s “Bonnie and Clyde,” earning an Academy Award nomination for her performance. (As did Warren Beatty, who played Clyde Barrow, Bonnie’s partner in crime.)

We’re not yet sure who would star alongside Cyrus’ Bonnie, but “Smash” executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are set to produce the project.

What do you think of Cyrus as Bonnie?

    great idea–she's got the personality, pretty girl and she can pull this off–that other one is not right for the part never was.

    so sick of hearing about her why doesn't lifetime and history channel use Reilly keough for a change why cant this beautiul girl get a break in films – Miley is just too into herself she is so stuck up – and so sure of herself she really makes me sick – give another girl a chance – dont know why things keep coming this girls way with all the awful things she has done in the past now I guess she will be the "mean girl" – no way should she be in that part with so many up and comers around but I am sure the darling has it all sewn up –

    Miley, stop with the darn tattoos already! What in the world are you doing? You're a beautiful woman but you're messing yourself up...not everyone around you is your "friend". Every time we see your photos you either have a new tattoo or a new piercing...why not just cool it a bit?

    Faye Dunaway publicly was opposed to Hilary Duff playing Bonnie, stating she wasn't a real actress. I disagree- Hilary would have been perfect. She didn't do it since she got pregnant, though.
    What will she say about Miley, I wonder....

    Might actually work. It's about time the history channel began moving away from quasi-reality crap like swamp people, ice road truckers and their other assorted quasi-reality shows to something that has some historical basis. They did it with "The Hatfields and McCoys" and it worked. Their rating went up, maybe they were paying attention.

    I would have said if nothing else that she was too young to play her, then I looked it up: Bonnie was only 23 when she died. That's close enough.
