Walter White may not be back, but Bryan Cranston is returning to the small screen.

After taking a break from TV following the end of "Breaking Bad," Cranston spent his time on Broadway portraying President Lyndon Johnson in Robert Schenkkan's play "All the Way." HBO Films has since acquired rights to the play, which will feature Cranston reprising his Tony Award-winning role, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "All the Way" will be adapted for the screen by Schenkkan and produced by Steven Spielberg and Cranston, among others.

"All the Way," which won the Tony's Best Play, tells the story of LBJ's first year in office and his efforts to maneuver the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The adaptation news comes just in time, following the play's final performance on Broadway last month.
