Following in Lindsay Lohan’s illustrious footsteps, Miley Cyrus is now in talks to star in a Lifetime Network biopic.  Unlike Lohan, who is starring in an original film based upon the life of Elizabeth Taylor (check out the ridiculous trailer), Cyrus will be starring in a four-hour TV miniseries remake of one of the greatest films of all time, Bonnie and Clyde.  So this should go well.

Cyrus in currently in talks to star as Bonnie Parker, who engaged in a series of bank robberies in the 1930s with her partner, Clyde Barrow.  The miniseries will be unique in that the A&E Network will be airing the miniseries on both the History Channel and the Lifetime Network.  This will be the first time A&E will be broadcasting the same program over two of its channels, as the network is aiming to reach as many male (History Channel) and female (Lifetime) viewers as possible.

The miniseries was written by John Rice and Joe Batteer, who are also currently scripting an Anna Nicole Smith biopic for Lifetime (sigh).  No release date has been announced.

So, to recap: soon, you’ll be able to tune in to Lifetime in order to watch Miley Cyrus star in a Bonnie and Clyde miniseries written by the guys who were hired to write the Anna Nicole Smith TV movie.  So this should be good, right?

What do you think of the Cyrus news?
