Steven Spielberg Wants Bryan Cranston To Play Lyndon Johnson In Mini-Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.09.2014



Deadline reports Steven Spielberg is in the process of optioning the rights to the Broadway play All the Way, based on the life of Lyndon B Johnson. Spielberg wants Bryan Cranston, who won a Tony last night for playing the role, to play Johnson again in the miniseries for Spielberg's Amblin banner.

The drama begins with the Kennedy assassination and follows the first year of Johnson's presidency, from taking office, passing Civil Rights legislation in Congress and his landslide re-election win. Spielberg has seen the play several times and has relationships with writer Robert Schenkkan and Cranston.

The project is expected to movie quickly. Since it will be a miniseries, it's possible that Schenkkan's second LBJ play (The Great Society) will be used. That play will premiere at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in July and follows Johnson from 1964 to 1968.
