John Goodman Circles 'Trumbo' Opposite Bryan Cranston

Hollywood News from MovieWeb - Thu, 31/07/2014 - 02:04

After taking on Hollywood makeup artist John Chambers in 2012 Best Picture winner Argo, John Goodman is circling a role in the biopic Trumbo, which would reunite him with Argo co-star Bryan Cranston.

No deal is in place yet, but John Goodman is expected to accept an offer to play Hollywood producer Frank King in the Dalton Trumbo biopic. Bryan Cranston is portraying the screenwriter, considered one of Hollywood's best in the 1940s, whose career came grinding to a halt in 1947, after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee during their investigation into the motion picture industry.

Despite being blacklisted as one of the "Hollywood 10" writers, Frank King continued to hire Dalton Trumbo, who would write under pseudonyms. The screenwriter won two Oscars while he was blacklisted for Roman Holiday and The Brave One, which was produced by Frank King.

Helen Mirren is also attached to star, although our original report from April revealed that she was set to play Dalton Trumbo's wife, but The Wrap reports that she is actually playing gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, who constantly went after the writer and supported him being blacklisted.

Jay Roach is directing from a screenplay by John McNamara, with the director and writer also producing alongside Michael London and Janice Williams. It isn't known when production will begin.

John Goodman most recently starred in The Monuments Men and had a voice role in Transformers: Age of Extinction. He will next be seen in Valencia and The Gambler remake.

Trumbo is in development and stars Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, John Goodman. The film is directed by Jay Roach.
