Bryan Cranston to Star in HBO Films’ ‘All the Way’ Adaptation

Bryan Cranston is going “All the Way” with HBO Films. The studio has acquired the rights to the Tony Award-winning play starring Cranston as President Lyndon Johnson, a role that also won him a Tony Award for lead actor. Robert Schenkkan will adapt his play for HBO.

A behind-the-scenes look at President Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office, “All the Way” follows him as he takes the oath following President Kennedy’s assassination, copes with the escalation of the Vietnam War and launches his landmark civil rights bill.

Cranston, who made his Broadway debut in “All the Way,” won not only the Tony Award, but also the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theater World Awards. He’s also won three Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards for “Breaking Bad.” He’s nominated for the show’s final season.

“All the Way” will be produced for HBO by Amblin Television, Tale Told Productions and Moon Shot Entertainment, with Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank & Justin Falvey, Robert Schenkkan and Bryan Cranston executive producing, and James Degus co-executive producing.
