Oscar-nominated filmmaker Bruce Beresford ("Driving Miss Daisy," "Tender Mercies") is set to direct History and Lifetime's four-hour miniseries about Bonnie & Clyde says Deadline.

John Rice and Joe Batteer penned the project based on the true story of the infamous bank robbing couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Miley Cyrus had previously been in talks to play Bonnie but has dropped out. The mini will air simultaneously on both History and Lifetime.
