all-the-wayJames Newton Howard has recently recorded his score for the upcoming HBO original movie All the Way. The film is directed by Jay Roach (Austin PowersMeet the ParentsTrumboGame Change) and stars Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Anthony Mackie as Martin Luther King and Melissa Leo as Lady Bird Johnson. Bradley Whitford, Stephen Root, Marque Richardson, Aisha Hinds, Todd Weeks, Mo McRae, Spencer Garrett and Frank Langella are co-starring. The movie is based on Robert Schenkkan’s Tony Award-winning play of the same title and follows LBJ’s first year in office as he takes the oath in the wake of President Kennedy’s assassination, navigates the escalation of the Vietnam War and balances opposing interests to launch his landmark civil rights bill. Roach, Cranston and Schenkkan are also executive producing the Amblin Television, Tale Told Productions and Moonshot Entertainment production with Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank & Justin Falvey (The AmericansFalling Skies, Under the Dome). All the Way will premiere in May on HBO. Visit the official movie website for more information.

The composer’s other upcoming projects include the fantasy adventure The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which will be released on April 22.

    I love JNH, but his music for films like these tends to be really boring.
