Godzilla star Bryan Cranston is set take his portrayal of U.S. leader Lyndon B.

Johnson from the stage to the screen after signing on to reprise his role as the president in Steven Spielberg's TV adaptation of All the Way.

The Breaking Bad star won a Tony Award for his Broadway debut and now bosses at U.S. cable network HBO have acquired rights to the play adaptation, which Spielberg is executive producing.

Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan will pen the screenplay.

All the Way chronicles LBJ's first year in office after taking the oath following President Kennedy's assassination.
