Ordinarily, we’d picture the Mother of Dragons teaming up with Beast to fight crimes, not commit them — but actually, you know what, this totally works, too.
According to The Wrap, Nicholas Hoult of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones” are set to star in “Go Down Together,” a new film about iconic Depression-era lovers and outlaws Bonnie and Clyde.
This isn’t the first time that Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow have had a big-screen outing, but it might be the first time that Hollywood tells their whole story, warts and all. The movie is based on Jeff Guinn’s book by the same name, in which he uncovered an incredible amount of detail about the oft-romanticized couple, including some less-sexy details about their legendary, four-year crime spree.
Perhaps the most awkward revelation: despite their criminal legacy, Bonnie and Clyde were much better at titillating the public and cultivating their bad-ass reputations than they ever were at robbing banks. Actually, they were pretty bad at that.
Also suggesting that a more human side of Bonnie and Clyde might be on display in this film: Michael Sucsy, whose short resume includes the character-focused “The Vow” and “Grey Gardens,” has been tapped to direct.
“Go Down Together” is the latest of many new project for Nicholas Hoult, whose role in the “X-Men” franchise (and his status as Jennifer Lawrence’s paramour) has made him a seriously hot prospect.
And Emilia Clarke, who has been using her off time from “Game of Thrones” to do anything from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” on Broadway to battling cyborgs in “Terminator: Genesis,” is making a typically interesting choice in trying the 1930s on for size.
What do you think? Are you excited to see Clarke and Hoult as Bonnie and Clyde?
