Bryan Cranston is taking President Lyndon B. Johnson from the Broadway stage to your TV screen. After winning a Tony Award for his work in “All The Way,” the “Breaking Bad” star has teamed with Steven Spielberg for a film adaptation of the play that will premiere on HBO.
In addition to HBO Films’ involvement, Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan — who also wrote the play — will adapt the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Schenkkan previously worked on “The Pacific.” A director has not been announced for “All The Way” yet.
“All The Way” tells the story of Johnson’s first year as president after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The play’s limited Broadway run closed on June 29.
