Miley Cyrus might soon be playing one of cinema’s ultimate bad girls, Bonnie Parker, on the small screen. Rumor has it that she may tackle the part of the infamous crook, one half of Bonnie and Clyde, in a Lifetime miniseries.
The actress is currently meeting with directors and the series would air on both the Lifetime and History networks, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That would mark the first time a program has aired on both sister networks. “Smash” executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan will produce the series.
A rep for Cyrus had yet to respond to MTV News’ request for comment by press time. Casting for Bonnie’s criminal beau, Clyde Barrow, has yet to be announced.
The real life Bonnie and Clyde became sensations when they went on a bank robbery and murder spree in the 1930s with their crew. The couple was eventually cornered by Louisiana police officials and killed.
If Cyrus should join the series it would mark her latest turn on TV. She is set to make a cameo on this season of “Two and a Half Men.” She is set to play Missi, the daughter of one of Walden’s (Ashton Kutcher) friends. In photos released last week, Cyrus seems to be doing her best to mix it up with the “Men” crew as she sports lots of short shorts and even climbs into bed with Walden wearing nothing more than skimpy lingerie.
The casting would also mark another big-time starlet appearing on the Lifetime network. Lohan is set to play Elizabeth Taylor in the “Liz & Dick” biopic set to premiere in November.
