‘Breaking Bad’ movie in the works

‘Breaking Bad’ movie in the works

The plot involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" (does that sound like Jesse Pinkman to anyone?), and production is set to begin in (where else?) New Mexico next month. Still standing, of course, are Skyler and Walt Jr. -sorry, Flynn-Jesse Pinkman, and Saul Goodman, whose own series Better Call Saul offers the occasional glimpse to his dismal life in the wake of the events of Breaking Bad.

Neither the Journal nor the Hollywood Reporter confirmed casting (or whether Greenbrier will be either a sequel or prequel).

"Maybe Walter White did get away with it", Cranston proposes to Conan O'Brien, then makes a "hmm, what if?" face.

Filming is about to begin in New Mexico, where the original TV series was set and shot, according to The Albuquerque Journal.

Bryan Cranston has confirmed the "Breaking Bad" movie is happening - and he'd love to join the cast.

Representatives for Gilligan and Breaking Bad producers Sony Pictures Television did not immediately respond to THR's requests for comment.

Details about the project are pretty scarce at this stage, but the movie is expected to be a two-hour feature - although it's not yet known whether Gilligan will be making a TV movie or a theatrically-released film.

The Los Angeles native continued: 'I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script. We know Breaking Bad is one of the most-watched shows on the streaming service, and they played a huge part in saving Breaking Bad when ratings were that good in the first two seasons of the show.

In the entertainment industry, what prompts a studio to throw money at a project has changed, Buckmaster says.

"We're all really proud of our show and 'Better Call Saul, ' and I think in some ways it's best to leave it alone", the 62-year-old actor told the audience during the Breaking Bad 10-year anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July. It could have - and probably would have - been canceled without Netflix helping fans discover the show.

Created by Vince Gilligan, "Breaking Bad" told the story of Walter White, a high school science teacher who responds to a terminal cancer diagnosis by turning into a powerful drug lord.

Well, given that the last episode of Breaking Bad saw the death of Walter White (though some have argued that he could still be alive), it doesn't seem likely.
