Broadcast News co-stars William Hurt and Holly Hunter are to reteam for a much-anticipated Tv mini-series about bankrobbing couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Hurt will play a Texas Ranger on the hunt for the criminals, while Hunter will portray Parker's mother Emma, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Miley Cyrus was briefly attached as Bonnie Parker but she has since dropped out of the project.

Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are the brains behind the miniseries.
