Bryan Cranston appears to have run out of film to act in, so he decided to create some new ones himself, starting with an adaptation of David Wiltse’s novel Home Again. Cranston will both direct and write the adaptation.

This isn’t his first time to toss on the “writer” and director” hats, though. In 1999, we wrote, starred in, and directed Last Chance, but no one really cared cause he was just Malcolm’s dad and Seinfeld‘s dentist back then.

But now…now people are starting to pay attention to Mr. Cranston. And they’ll even listen to his crazy-long run-on sentences like this one, in which he describes Home Again.

It’s basically a very strong father-son story, and a murder-mystery. An FBI agent who suddenly quits the department and takes his son and his wife and moves back to his hometown of Cascade, Nebraska, to rekindle family values and pay attention now. He’s been working for the FBI for years, so he’s been home sporadically. And his son is now sixteen, very sensitive, and looks upon his father like sort of a stranger… And then there’s a murder that happens in the little town that they move to, which kills [the father’s] whole stance on, ‘Things are better in these small towns!’ And then things unravel, and basically, the father and son come together at the end and save each other emotionally and literally.

That’s a hell of a logline, Bryan. (Hollywood.com)
