Actor Bryan Cranston has confirmed reports he will star in a TV movie based on his award-winning Broadway play All the Way.

Last week, reports suggesting Lincoln director Steven Spielberg was keen to turn the play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson into a mini-series surfaced, but the Breaking Bad star reveals the project will actually be a TV movie. He tells Vulture.com, "They want to see and honor the story, and so if it needs to be maybe four hours then it might be a two-hour and two-hour kind of thing." All the Way playwright Robert Schenkkan is currently penning the script for the TV movie. Cranston picked up a Best Actor Tony Award for his portrayal of Johnson earlier this month.
