HBO Films have announced a May 21st premiere date for Jay Roach’s upcoming telemovie “All The Way”. Bryan Cranston reprises his Tony-winning role in this riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s first year in office after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Staking his presidency on what would be a historic Civil Rights Act, Johnson finds himself caught between the moral imperative of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the expectations of the southern Democratic Party leaders who brought Johnson to power.
Anthony Mackie, Melissa Leo, Bradley Whitford, Stephen Root, Marque Richardson, Aisha Hinds, Todd Weeks, Mo McRae, Spencer Garrett and Frank Langella also star. Robert Schenkkan penned the screenplay based on his Tony-winning play of the same name.
Schenkkan, Roach, Cranston, Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey are executive producing.
