Bonnie and Clyde are coming back to take a final bow.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway have reportedly agreed to present the Oscar for Best Picture at the upcoming Academy Awards on February 26.

Their appearance is intended to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their title roles in "Bonnie and Clyde," the 1967 gangster flick that ended with the outlaw couple getting machine-gunned to death in a gruesome, slow-motion shootout. Directed by Arthur Penn, the groundbreaking film was one of that year's stellar crop of Best Picture nominees, which also included "Doctor Doolittle," "The Graduate," "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" and winner "In the Heat of the Night."

Beatty, 79, recently starred in "Rules Don't Apply," his first movie in 15 years. Dunaway, 76, was seen earlier this year in "The Bye Bye Man," her first film since the 2010 TV movie "A Family Thanksgiving." She has roles in three other films that are now in post-production.
