Aiming for the same verisimilitude that inspired it to cast Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, Lifetime is now developing a new Bonnie And Clyde miniseries starring Miley Cyrus, the hard-overbitten, ramblin' country outlaw who's waged a two-fisted war of bong photos and fringe haircuts against the establishment, thus capturing the hearts and minds of the indigent. Cyrus is reportedly already in negotiations for the four-part miniseries, which will air in tandem on both Lifetime and the History Channel—the latter having already reduced World War II to an elaborate occult ritual waged by Adolf Hitler and extra-terrestrials, so casting Miley Cyrus as Bonnie Parker is relatively scholarly. It also follows those recent, abandoned plans to have her fellow former Disney Channel star Hilary Duff take on the role, suggesting all of these new Bonnie And Clyde announcements are just part of a concerted effort to provoke Faye Dunaway into vibrations of shrieking, violent rage, until her ribs crack open to reveal the obsidian crystal within that can control the universe. But of course, this is just legend.
