Oscar winner Melissa Leo is starring opposite Bryan Cranston in HBO's All the Way

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Melissa Leo is the latest major star to join the cast of HBO's Lyndon B Johnson biopic All the Way.

The premium channel is adapting Robert Schenkkan's Tony Award-winning stage play with Bryan Cranston reprising his role as Lbj.

President Johnson's Lady Bird will be played by Academy Award winner Leo, according to Deadline.

This will be a reunion of sorts for HBO and Leo, who previously starred in the network's Hurricane Katrina drama series Treme.

All the Way dramatizes Johnson's presidency from his ascendancy to office in the wake of JFK's assassination through to his signing of the Civil Rights Act.

Avengers: Age of Ultron star Anthony Mackie joined All the Way earlier this week to play Civil Rights leader Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

Jay Roach will direct All the Way, having previously helmed its political dramas Recount and Game Change. »

One of the more unexpected rumors in the past year or so was that of a live-action TV series in the works at Netflix based on the popular Nintendo video game franchise "The Legend of Zelda".

Today though, Season Zero reports that the project has resurfaced again - this time being developed as a potential pilot for Amazon. It adds that if the project is to go ahead, it will shoot in August in New York and Savannah, Georgia.

What the plot of such a potential series could be is unclear at this point, though will likely involve Link traveling across Hyrule to rescue Princess Zelda.

If the report is true, the project would join the batch of other high profile pilots in the works at »
