Breaking Bad movie in the works - but maybe without Walter White

Breaking Bad movie in the works - but maybe without Walter White

Fans of AMC's hit show Breaking Bad were sent into a frenzy after the announcement that the series would be getting the movie treatment, with creator Vince Gilligan now working on a film.

We've had a prequel series to delve deeper into one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and now another chapter in the Breaking Bad universe is potentially in the works.

It was not immediately clear if the film would land on TV or in theaters, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.

Gilligan told Entertainment Weekly he'd love to see a reunion of the characters Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul). A prequel series, Better Call Saul, was quickly greenlighted before the initial series concluded, and it was recently renewed for a fifth season set to air in 2019. Cranston addressed that topic on The Dan Patrick Show, telling the former sportscaster that he's unsure if he'll reprise his role in the future. We also don't know if this will be a theatrical release or a made-for-TV movie. Cranston said he hasn't read the script, but would "absolutely" like to play Walter White if his character is in it.

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

Dead Brothel Owner Elected To Nevada State Assembly In Landslide
The 36th Assembly District is situated in the south portion of Nevada, and includes portions of Nye, Lincoln, and Clark counties. Arguably the single biggest victor in the US Midterms is a brothel owner who has been elected as a congressman for Nevada.

The local paper has claimed to have obtained an early plot synopsis too, saying that the movie will 'track the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom'.

Breaking Bad, the AMC drama that ended its hugely successful run in 2013, is now reportedly said to be getting a feature film.

The New Mexico Film Office has remained tight-lipped when questioned about the project and is sticking to the "Greenbrier" project name.

This is not a drill - Breaking Bad is going to be turned into a film.

Mysteries abound about reports of a Breaking Bad film, but curiosity is indeed piqued.
