Bryan Cranston To Star In Dalton Trumbo Biopic

September 19, 2013

So what will actor Bryan Cranston be up to now that production on Breaking Bad is finished?

Well, Cranston will play the title role in the Jay Roach-directed TRUMBO, the fact-based feature film of the man who broke the Hollywood blacklist.

Michael London’s Groundswell Productions is looking to start shooting in 2014 and it will be Cranston’s first big job after the AMC series.

The picture will be directed by Jay Roach from a script by John McNamara which was adapted from the book written by Bruce Cook.

Dalton Trumbo was the highest paid screenwriter in the world when, in 1950, he was sent to prison for refusing to answer the questions of Congress’ infamous House UnAmerican Activities Committee. Rebellious even after his release, Trumbo became the movies’ most prolific blacklisted writer, secretly writing such classics as Roman Holiday and winning two Academy Awards… under fake names. Trumbo eventually cleared his name and ended the blacklist once and for all.

Watch Breaking Bad‘s last episode on September 29th. Last Sunday’s episode was intense!
