Everything We Know About The Allison Janney And Bryan Cranston Drama Everything’s Going To Be Great

There are no sure things in life, but if you're making a film with Bryan Cranston and Allison Janney as co-leads, I'm fairly certain you've got the goods.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this dynamic thespian duo is set to topline Jon S. Baird's "Everything's Going to Be Great." The project originated with "I, Tonya" screenwriter Steven Rogers, and if you're any kind of theater nerd, it sounds like this will be right down your alley. There's not a lot of information currently available regarding the film from  Entertainment One and Astute Films, but this is a project we'll certainly be keeping our eyes on as things develop. 

Everything's Going To Be Great Plot Details And When You Can See It

Janney and Cranston will star as the heads of the Smart family, a peripatetic clan dealing with matters of loss and identity as they bop from state to state. The Smarts work in regional theater, which I can assure you, as someone with a BFA in the trade, means they must be dirt poor."Everything's Going to Be Great" is currently shooting in Toronto. If it's a small-scale drama, the movie should wrap by June, which means it could throw its hat in the awards season ring this fall. A Toronto International Film Festival premiere feels all but guaranteed. A limited theatrical release should ensue, and, if the movie does justice by its amazing talent, the Oscar jockeying will follow.

The last time Rogers teamed up with producers Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan, they delivered "I, Tonya," which earned Janney a richly deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar. As for Baird, he directed the criminally overlooked biopic "Stan & Ollie," which featured Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. Baird also helmed the well-received "Tetris" starring Taron Egerton (who should've won an Oscar for his portrayal of Elton John in "Rocketman").

Cranston and Janney will be joined by promising youngsters Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (the voice of Pinocchio in Robert Zemeckis' wholly forgotten 2023 adaptation) and Jack Champion (our beloved Spider from "Avatar: The Way of Water"). It's a rock-solid cast and an intriguing hook. And there are more reasons to be hopeful that this will be a special film.

Getting Cranston, a six-time Emmy winner, his second Academy Award nomination and first win will likely be the focus of this campaign. The star of "Breaking Bad" is one of the most esteemed actors working today. He will get his moment on the Dolby Theatre stage one way or another. I haven't read this script, but pedigree matters, and this project stinks of prestige. If awards prognosticating is your thing, Cranston has to be considered an early favorite for Best Actor.
