Johnny & Clyde - What We Know So Far

As InStyle declared in July 2021, "Megan Fox Is Back!" The once-maligned movie star's career is undergoing what she likens to "being a phoenix" rising from the ashes. Since then, Fox has scored leading roles in the thrillers "Till Death" and "Midnight in the Switchgrass" as well as a part in the vampire movie "Night Teeth."

Now, the "Jennifer's Body" star is attached to the upcoming film "Johnny & Clyde." As its name suggests, the film is a retelling of the classic American tale of outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. The FBI describes their crime spree and the subsequent investigation as "one of the most colorful and spectacular manhunts the nation had seen up to that time."

Their tale of love, crime, and violence has been explored endlessly on screen, from 1967's "Bonnie and Clyde" to the Netflix original "The Highwaymen" in 2019. One of the most famous Bonnie and Clyde-inspired films is the uber controversial "Natural Born Killers" from 1994.

With so many film versions of this story, "Johnny & Clyde" is opting to take a different approach.

Here's what we know about "Johnny & Clyde" so far.
