Chloë Grace Moretz "can't wait" to begin working for new Bonnie and Clyde movie, 'Love Is a Gun'

The iconic duo who turned America's Great Depression into a murder spree while leaving behind a legendary love story before dying a disturbing, but highly romanticized death, is set to be brought alive on screen again.

You've heard about the gangster couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow in songs, movies, tales, and fables, and now you'll see them in a live-action film slated for production in 2019, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as Bonnie and Jack O’Connell as Clyde.

Titled 'Love Is a Gun,' the film will be based on Jeff Guinn's bestselling book 'Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde.'

In an exclusive interview with Meaww, the 21-year-old actress shared her excitement on being a part of the project and can't wait to get started on it. She also chinwagged a bit about her 16 years of experience in the acting field.

"I can't wait," says Moretz about her upcoming gangster role. No stranger to kicking asses, literally with her superhero comedy 'Kick-Ass' and its sequel, 'Kick-Ass 2,' she added that the movie is bound to "pull people's mind."

"Jack is a wonderful actor and I can't wait to work with him," she shared.

In 1967, Arthur Penn's film 'Bonnie and Clyde,' starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, established and stylized the gangster movie genre, and we are hoping that this movie too brings something new to the table. 

However, the upcoming film may not echo Penn's film at all. 

"It's the real tale of Bonnie and Clyde. It's a very realistic version of it, so I think people will love it," Moretz added.

The actress began acting at a young age, starring in films such as 'The Amityville Horror' and 'Desperate Housewives,' and it's safe to say that her career has only sky-rocketed despite her break from the spotlight. 

When asked about the accomplishment she's most proud of, the actress paused for a second and said, "I think it's been really wonderful to have a career this far. It's been 16 years now and to have the opportunity to be able to really delve into the depths of who I am emotionally from the time I was five years old to now and use my acting as a form of therapy and catharsis in a lot of ways has really helped me progress  as a human."

"And really be able to know my own emotional capacity. I think it's a very beautiful gift that I've been bestowed," she signed off with a smile.
