Neil Burger takes on Bonnie and Clyde

Limitless director Neil Burger is in talks to call the shots on Sheldon Tuner’s new Bonnie and Clyde script .

Busy Burger is also on to direct the upcoming Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune game adaptation, while Turner is to make his directing debut with By Virtue Fall , after completing this script.

Sheldon Turner, co-writer of 2009’s Oscar nominated Up in the Air is adapting the script from ‘ Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde’ by Jeff Guinn, a non-fiction account of the legendary 1930s duo who, joined by various gang members, embarked on spree of robbery and murder.

If the movie is true to the source, then we should get a much less romanticised version of events than the 1967 classic; a much more haphazard spree leading to the inevitable, bloody, 150 bullet, blood-soaked climax.
