In today's edition of "who the hell asked for this reboot?," there may be a Malcolm in the Middle movie adaptation coming soon. Well, at least what Bryan Cranston thinks. The actor, who played doting father Hal in the award-winning series, hinted at the possibility during a recent Reddit AMA with James Franco as part of their Why Him? promotion.
When a fan asked if a Malcolm in the Middle film was in the works, Cranston stated:
“There has been some conversation about that. 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 continued, “It would be like if you [Franco] did a Freaks and Geeks movie.” Franco then responded, “Maybe for Freaks and Geeks it could be the 20 year high school reunion! I don’t know if my character would go to the reunion though. Maybe he just never left town.”
The Breaking Bad star previously discussed the revival over the summer. “I sure hope so,” he told E! News when asked if the Malcolm in the Middle cast would reunite for the 10th anniversary of the series finale. “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.”
