Spielberg Planning An ALL THE WAY Mini-Series For Bryan Cranston


Just a day after winning Best Play and Best Actor at the Tony’s, All the Way, which chronicles LBJ‘s attempt to get the 88th Congress to pass civil rights legislation, may already have a TV mini-series adaptation in the works… from none other than Steven Spielberg.

According to Deadline, Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment is eyeing a production of the award-winning play complete with Bryan Cranston reprising his role as Landslide Lyndon. Since it is a mini-series and not a feature film, Deadline is also speculating that it may involve All the Way playwright Robert Schenkkan’s soon-to-premiere sequel The Great Society.

It’s not yet known where the mini-series will find a home, but you can bet that HBO is at the top of the list given Spielberg’s history with the premium cabler.

The only downside to this whole thing is that I was hoping All the Way would become a feature-length film so that Tony and Emmy winner Bryan Cranston could go for Oscar and get one step closer to the coveted EGOT.

Can’t wait for All the Way? If you’re dying for some LBJ right now, I’d recommend seeking out LBJ: The Early Years starring Randy Quaid (yep) as the second greatest president of the 20th century. Here’s a clip:
