“Limitless” director Neil Burger is set to develop a new film based on the adaptation of the Jeff Guinn novel “Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde.” Sheldon Turner will be writing and adapting the new screenplay, which is said to be a more realistic take on the famous Depression era outlaws.
According to Deadline: ” the outlaws were just 22 when they were gunned down by a former Texas Ranger after they’d killed seven people. The first person Clyde Barrow killed was the cell mate who had sexually abused him repeatedly. Barrow had a strong code of honor: when a lifer in the prison took the rap for the killing, Barrow and his gang broke him out. The book also suggests that Bonnie Parker was a prostitute before joining up with and eventually going down in a hail of bullets with Barrow.”
