BREAKING BAD Movie Reportedly in Development by Creator Vince Gilligan

An Actual ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Is Starting Production This Bloody Month

Dust off your fan theories, kids, because Breaking Bad is coming back as a movie. It is also unknown if the film will be a prequel like the AMC spin-off series, "Better Call Saul".

Breaking Bad, the crime drama about a high school chemistry teacher (Bryan Cranston) who begins selling meth to secure money for his family after he's diagnosed with terminal cancer, originally ran for five seasons on USA network AMC.

Vince Gilligan also serves as a co-creator and executive producer on that series.

While the series ended with Cranston's death in the show's final episode in 2013, he said he would "absolutely" consider reprising the role if asked.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, which reported the original story, the Breaking Bad movie is to begin filming soon, like this month.

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston confirmed the news when he called into the Dan Patrick Show. After rumors of the movie's existence dropped yesterday, we confirmed today that the film will focus on Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) following the conclusion of the series. Despite him not knowing if Walter White would appear in the series or not, he's excited to see what the future holds for the franchise because of how much it's affected his life.

The film office wouldn't confirm or deny that the project was a "Breaking Bad" film. As you well know, Walter came to the rescue complete with a machine gun in tow and decimated the neo-Nazis, and while it seemed for a minute there that a now-free Jesse might finally put a bullet in Walter's head, he instead decided to make a run for it.

That same source also reports that the title is now "Greenbriar" and that production in the Duke City is scheduled to kick off in mid-November and run through until early February.

We'll have to wait to find out whether this mystery source is actually accurate - but the setting certainly makes sense.

Gilligan's current project, Better Call Saul, chronicling Saul Goodman's small-time lawyer who takes his own journey into criminal activities, is up to its fifth season, airing in 2019.
