Neil Burger Eyeing Go Down Together


Neil Burger appears to have some interest in boarding an upcoming feature film version of the book Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde, Deadline reports.

Written by Jeff Guinn, the factual account of the world’s most famous outlaw couple was released in 2009 and is described as follows:

Bestselling author Jeff Guinn combines exhaustive research with surprising, newly discovered material to tell the real tale of two kids from a filthy Dallas slum who fell in love and then willingly traded their lives for a brief interlude of excitement and, more important, fame. Go Down Together has it all—true romance, rebellion against authority, bullets flying, cars crashing, and, in the end, a dramatic death at the hands of a celebrity lawman.

This is the real story of Bonnie and Clyde and their troubled times, delivered with cinematic sweep by a masterful storyteller.

Sheldon Turner, best known for adapting Up in the Air, is attached to provide the screenplay. If Burger does commit to the project, it will likely be a followup to his recently-announced video game adaptation of Uncharted.
