Bryan Cranston Developing Popular Children's Book Variety
"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston and his Moon Shot Entertainment have optioned the rights to the popular children's book “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” a nonfiction book that’s described as a tongue-in-cheek collection of stories about keeping the adventuring spirit of previous generations, Variety reports.
The book, which was first a bestseller in England, was optioned for a film adaptation in 2007, but the project “never got off the ground,” the story notes. Moon Shot has a first-look agreement with Sony Pictures TV, which produced “Breaking Bad."
“Moon Shot is focused on producing drama and comedy series for broadcast and cable networks. There’s no word yet on a writer to adapt the ‘Dangerous Book’ series treatment. Cranston has said his goal with Moon Shot is to look for unusual perspectives and storytelling techniques,” the story says.
