    HBO is slaying it!

    HBO Lands Bryan Cranston Tony Winner “All the Way” for Film Adaptation

    2:30 PM PDT 7/16/2014 by Lesley Goldberg     

    The Tony-winner will reprise his role as President Lyndon Johnson, with Steven Spielberg also on board to exec produce.  

    It’s official: Bryan Cranston is returning to TV.

    HBO has acquired rights to the Tony Award-winning play All the Way, starring the Breaking Bad alum, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    Cranston will reprise his Tony-winning Broadway debut role as President Lyndon Johnson, with Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan on board to adapt the play for HBO Films. The TV movie marks a return to the premium cable network for Schenkkan, who earned two Emmy nominations and a WGA award for its miniseries The Pacific.

    The HBO movie will be produced by Amblin Television, Tale Told Productions and Moon Shot Entertainment, with Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, and Justin Falvey (Extant, Under the Dome, The Americans) on board to exec produce alongside Schenkkan and Cranston; James Degus will co-exec produce.

    All the Way offers a behind-the-scenes look at LBJ’s tumultuous first year in office as he takes the oath in the wake of President Kennedy‘s assassination, navigates the escalation of the Vietnam War and balances opposing interests to launch his landmark civil rights bill and win election to his first full presidential term.

    Cranston’s starring role earned him rave reviews and the Tony for lead actor in a play, as well as other prizes including the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Theater World Awards. He’s a three-time Emmy winner for his starring turn as Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad and also earned an Emmy and PGA prize for his role producing the series. On the feature side, he was among the cast of best picture Oscar winner Argo and most recently toplined Godzilla. He next stars as Dalton Trumbo in Jay Roach‘s Trumbo. Cranston is repped by UTA.

    For HBO Films, All the Way comes a week after the cabler received a leading 99 Emmy nominations, including 16 for Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer‘s play The Normal Heart. Last year, its Behind the Candelabra took home 11 Emmys. HBO Films productions won Emmys for outstanding TV movie every year from 1993-2010, save for 2000 and 2003.

    Getting blocked from a win by HBO this year, getting a win next year on HBO. Seems fair.

    Smooth move HBO. Now it’s time for AMC to offer a series to McConaughey based on the Dallas Buyers’ Club.

    They need to get Vera Farmiga on board with this to play Lady Bird Johnson for this film and I’m ready for this. Vera would be the perfect choice. Does anyone think so?

    I was thinking the same 🙁 I was hoping that All the Way would eventually be made into a theatrical film with Cranston so he could potentially win an Oscar.

    Same. But either way Cranston will hit this out of the ballpark!

    Why can’t the producers be targeting a film rather than a made-for-TV movie? I think it could do business in the adult market if released and structured properly. Somebody for God sakes give Cranston a shot at a starring role.

    Some actors just don’t have star quality. Bryan Cranston might be a great actor but he ain’t movie star.

    Sorry, what?

    This makes nonsense at all.

    You have to be a movie star to star in a movie?

    That is classist and elitist.
