"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.
