Daenerys and X-Men’s Beast to Play Bonnie and Clyde

It appears we finally know who the Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty of our day are: the Queen of Dragons and the hairy blue X-Man. Word is coming out of Cannes that Emilia Clarke and Nicholas Hoult are set to play Bonnie and Clyde in Michael Sucsy's adaptation of Go Down Together. Unlike how they are popularly portrayed, author Jeff Guinn found America's favorite bank-robbing couple to be inept criminals, capable only of ripping off mom-and-pop grocery stores. Sounds like an interesting new angle on these iconic American characters, but would it hurt to have them travel on at least one dragon?
