Director John Lee Hancock has been trying for 13 years to make a movie about outlaws and the grizzled lawmen who hunt them down. Not just any outlaws on the lam, mind you -- Bonnie and Clyde, the Depression-era celebrity bandits who went on a robbing and killing spree that ended with the pair cut to pieces in a hail of gunfire. Hancock wanted to tell this story from the point of view of the guys with badges who brought the legendary bank robbers down. So the director, whose past credits include films like The Blind Side and Saving Mr. Banks, started checking all the usual items off his list.
