Bryan Cranston All The Way

...and the accolades keep rolling in for Bryan Cranston. After conquering the small screen thanks to his turn as Walter White in "Breaking Bad," last night, the actor won the Best Lead Actor Tony for his performance in "All The Way," and someone in some very high places is liking what they see.

Via his Amblin Entertainment banner, Steven Spielberg is on his way to scoring the rights to the Robert Schenkkan-penned play, with plans to turn it into a miniseries. And that's not all, Spielberg wants Cranston to reprise his lead role as Lyndon B. Johnson, with the story chronicling his presidency in its first year, following being ushered into office after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. No word yet on which network will land it, but we'll be watching. [Deadline]

Dane Cook and Brandon Routh....together at last! The pair will star in the thriller "400 Days," which will follow "four astronauts sent on a simulated mission to a distant planet to test the psychological effects of deep space travel. Locked away for 400 days, the crew’s mental state begins to deteriorate when they lose all communication with the outside world. Forced to exit the ship, they discover that this mission may not have been a simulation after all." Matt Osterman ("Ghost From The Machine") wrote the script and will direct. [Deadline]

Chiwetel Ejiofor will get in the prison game with an adaptation of Rusty Young and Thomas McFadden's "Marching Powder: A True Story of Friendship, Cocaine, and South America’s Strangest Jail." New Regency is developing the project that will see Ejiofor "play McFadden, a convicted English drug trafficker who ran tours inside Bolivia’s notorious San Pedro prison...Basically, the inmates ran the place. They were expected to buy their cells from real estate agents. There were shops and restaurants, and hundreds of women and children live with imprisoned family members. Corrupt politicians and drug lords lived in luxury apartments. While kids ran around during the day, some of Bolivia’s busiest cocaine laboratories percolated at night." Damn. No word yet on a screenwriter by they've got some great material to work with. [Deadline]

"Skins" star Daniel Kaluuya has joined Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin in Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario." The drama will center on "the border wars between the cartels in Mexico and the Americans trying to stem the violence from creeping over the border," with Kaluuya playing an FBI agent working alongside Blunt. Roger Deakins will shoot the film will production starting this summer. [THR]
