Chloe Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell to star as Bonnie and Clyde in Love is a Gun

Chloe Grace Moretz (Let Me In) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) have signed on to star as Bonnie and Clyde in the Depression-era drama Love is a Gun, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on Jeff Guinn’s Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde, the film is written by Oscar-nominee Sheldon Turner (Up In the Air) and is described as a “thrilling, gritty and emotional story of two of history’s most famous lovers, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.”

The film will be directed by Kike Maillo, who directed the 2016 film Toro, and produced by Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer of Kamala Films and Sean and Bryan Furst of Skybound Entertainment.

“We are excited to reintroduce the iconic story of Bonnie and Clyde,” the producing team said in a joint statement. “Their story remains ubiquitous in popular culture across the globe, yet few in this generation know the details of their intimate love affair and the circumstances that led to their notorious crime spree that captured the imagination of the world in their time. Kike, Chloë and Jack are completely in sync about the character-driven approach we will be taking, and we feel lucky to have a creative team of this high caliber leading us forward.”

Added Alex Walton, executive vp international film sales and distribution at Endeavor Content: “Kiké Maillo brings a modern and edgy take on the universal story of star-crossed lovers, which is renowned around the world, and Chloë and Jack’s casting bring an authenticity to this tragic love story.”

A number of films have adapted the Bonnie and Clyde story, although the most famous remains the 1967 classic starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Betty from director Arthur Penn.
