A 'Breaking Bad' movie is in the works

A 'Breaking Bad' movie is in the works

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 movie has a tentative title of "Greenbrier", and will follow "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a project with that title is due to start shooting in mid-November.

I know half the team over there, so no hard feelings. I just had it in my mind I was going for 50. Kyrie Irving was not happy Monday night.

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

Breaking Bad had five seasons to chronicle the slow, maddening descent from suburban banality into criminal underworld for Walter White, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer. Sadly, there's no word on whether or not original stars, such as Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris or Aaron Paul, will return for the new story.

Whilst Cranston isn't keen, following the success of Better Call Saul - which explains how lawyer Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk) became the corrupt Saul Goodman who featured heavily in Breaking Bad - Gilligan previously said he was open to revisiting other characters for future spin-offs, including Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), admitting "anything's possible". There's not much information on when the film will be set - so whether it will take the story up as a sequel like Netflix hit Better Call Saul, or if it'll be a prequel or simply a Breaking Bad universe spin off.

Collider reports that Gilligan has written the script and is gearing up to direct starting this month in the traditional Albuquerque haunts. Better Call Saul executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are rumored to be involved, too.
