Bryan Cranston is starring in the drama “Wakefield” with Robin Swicord directing from her own script.
Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn are producing through their Mockingbird Pictures banner with Elliot Webb co-producing. The film is based on a Nathaniel Hawthorne short story of the same name about a man who unexpectedly leaves his wife for an extended period of time.
Cranston revealed the casting on a recent interview on “The Howard Stern Radio Show,” explaining that he will play a married Manhattan lawyer who sees a racoon in the attic of his home and winds up staying in the attic for several months due to a nervous breakdown. He also said his character will become romantically involved with a younger woman at some point in the story.
