Bryan Cranston says there's "been conversation"
A Malcolm in the Middle movie could be on its way, as actor Bryan Cranston reveals “there’s been conversation” of bringing it to the silver screen.
Malcolm in the Middle starred Cranston, Frankie Muniz, Jane Kaczmarek, Christopher Masterson, Justin Berfield and Erik Per Sullivan. It first aired in 2000 and ran for seven seasons.
During a recent Reddit AMA, a fan asked about the possibility of a film based on the the award-winning sitcom. “There has been some conversation about that,” Cranston responded. “I don’t know if or when that could happen, I guess we have to gauge the temperament of the fans to see if its something they want. But maybe. It would be fun to play with all those people again.”
Cranston also hinted at a Malcolm in the Middle reunion over the summer, after an E! News asked the actor if the cast would be reuniting to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show’s end. “I sure hope so,” Cranston said at the time.
“I really do, for no other reason than that I miss those people like crazy and I stay in touch with them… There’s a possibility we want to start talking about the possibility of putting together a story that makes sense about that family 10 years or 12 years later,” he added.
Cranston recently revived his Breaking Bad character Walter White on Saturday Night Live. The comedy segment saw Walter (Bryan Cranston) revealed as the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Trump’s cabinet.
Ghostbusters actor Kate McKinnon depicted Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway alongside Cranston, as Walter joked that he’s had “some times” with Trump’s senior adviser and chief strategist Steve Bannon.
“I’m really surprised he tracked me down as I’ve kind of been off the grid for a while,” Walter explained. “I know the DEA better than anyone, inside and out.”
Walter also revealed himself to be a fan of one particular Trump campaign promise: “I also like that wall he wants to build. Nothing comes in from Mexico meaning a lot less competition for the rest of us.”
