Breaking Bad movie is officially in the works

Breaking Bad

That description is pretty vague, but if I, an embarrassingly huge Breaking Bad fan, were to take a wishful guess, it could be about Jesse Pinkman after the events which take place after the series finale. The prequel show Better Call Saul has been renewed for a fifth season, and now it has been reported that series creator Vince Gilligan is about to start shooting a Breaking Bad movie. A possible story line would track "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom," according to The Albuquerque Journal, which brought the news, Albuquerque being the original filming location for the series. We also don't know if the movie will be a follow-up to the acclaimed AMC series, which ended in 2013, or if it's another prequel, like the show's beloved spin-off Better Call Saul, which recently wrapped up its fourth season on AMC.

Variety reports the two-hour film, now called Greenbriar, will begin filming this month.

From acclaimed writer, producer, director Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad was produced by Sony Pictures Television with Mark Johnson (Gran Via) and Michelle MacLaren serving as executive producers.

It's also not clear as to whether Cranston will be reprising his role for the film, though this seems unlikely as he recently admitted he'd rather not "mess" with its legacy by rebooting the show.

He said: "I desperately want to see both of them on Better Call Saul".

Production for the film is expected to begin mid-November at New Mexico. "Peter [Gould] wants it, the writers do, the actors do".

We'll have to wait to find out whether this mystery source is actually accurate - but the setting certainly makes sense. "I just hope we figure it out because I've got to hear, 'Yeah, bitch!' one more time".
