He’s now completed his awesome AMC series Breaking Bad (although there are still two episodes to air) and now Bryan Cranston is beginning to look at his future acting career. While we’ll next see him in Garth Edwards’ blockbuster Godzilla, Cranston’s first role post Walter White will see him lead Jay Roach’s Trumbo. The fact-based feature will look at the man who broke the Hollywood blacklist from a screenplay by John McNamara and based on the book by Bruce Cook.

Dalton Trumbo was the highest paid screenwriter in the world but was sent to prison in 1950 for refusing to answer the questions of Congress at the House of UnAmerican Activities Committee. The writer was rebellious even after his release and while struggling to have his work recognised, secretly wrote a number of Hollywood classics and won two Academy Awards under fake names.
