The four-hour miniseries will be split across two nights in December, and a new preview has debuted online, teasing Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger looking rather beautiful in their 1930s attire with a nod to another of America’s most famous outlaws, Jesse James.
Bonnie & Clyde is a star-studded miniseries for HISTORY, LIFETIME and A&E networks. The four-hour, two-night event miniseries stars Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) in the title roles of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, the Depression-era outlaw couple whose criminal exploits have assured them lasting fame for eight decades.
The leading duo are joined by a very promising cast, starring alongside Holly Hunter, William Hurt, Sarah Hyland, Elizabeth Reaser, Lane Garrison, Austin Hebert, and Dale Dickey.
The Oscar-nominated Bruce Beresford (Double Jeopardy, Driving Miss Daisy) directs from a script co-written by Joe Batteer and John Rice (Windtalkers).
Bonnie & Clyde is set to air across two nights on December 8th and 9th on History, Lifetime, and A&E in the States. No word yet on when or how this be screened in the UK, but here’s to hoping it won’t be long before it crosses the Atlantic. In the meantime, here’s the new preview, and the original trailer in case you missed it.
