Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and Captain Marvel's Annette Bening have been cast in a new comedy from the director of Marley & Me and The Devil Wears Prada.

As detailed in The Wrap, Jerry and Marge Go Large will see the pair play a couple who find a loophole in the lottery and end up winning $27 million. Using the money, they set out to restore their small town to glory.

The film is based on a 2018 article in The Huffington Post that is quite the read, and will be coming exclusively to streaming service Paramount+ in the United States. Since there isn't a UK version or equivalent, we'll have to wait and see where the film will be released over here.

Last year, Cranston made his TV c0meback in Your Honor, a series that cast him as well-respected judge who got dragged into a world of crime and danger when his son was involved in a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of a gangster leader's son.
