Actor Bryan Cranston, best known for his role as Walter White in AMC's Breaking Bad (aka one of the most ingenious shows in the history of American television), will play a Michigan serial killer in a new film, Holland, Michigan. Naomi Watts is also slated to star.

The film, directed by Errol Morris, has been described as "Hitchcock-like" and revolves around a seemingly normal suburban couple — or so it appears — until the wife (Watts) accuses her husband (Cranston) of adultery, and bingo bango, she discovers his other love isn't a person — it's murder.

Sounds like a perfect segue for Cranston, right?

Early reports indicate the film will take place during a tulip festival, i.e., Holland's annual Tulip Time event, and on-site shoots are a possibility.

A release date hasn't yet been announced, but Morris says production will start later this year.
