‘Breaking Bad’ Movie in the Works With Series Creator Vince Gilligan

‘Breaking Bad’ Movie in the Works With Series Creator Vince Gilligan

THR's sources stress that the movie will be set within the Breaking Bad franchise though, but that does not confirm any of the show's original stars, including Emmy winners Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, will appear in the film.

If a Breaking Bad movie were actually happening - if, as the Albuquerque Journal claimed, Vince Gilligan really was spearheading the project and taking it into production this month - we certainly would've heard about it before now, and definitelywouldn't be hearing about it for the first time via the Albuquerque Journal (extremely Bobby Bottleservice voice: "No disrespect").

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'.

Specific details, such as if the main cast will include the show's iconic pair Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, or if the movie is due for a theatrical or TV movie release, are yet to be announced.

"We are happy to welcome "Greenbrier" and Sony Studios to New Mexico", said New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis.




Filming will be carried out in Alburquerque from mid November through to February next year.

The final episode of "Breaking Bad" aired in 2013 after five seasons of following the exploits of Walter White, a fictional high school chemistry professor who utilizes his science skills to make crystal meth. Partly thanks to the excellent Better Call Saul spin-off, but also partly to the vague ending that didn't quite offer a full-stop to Walter White's story, the brand endures.

It has been reported that Gilligan will be at the helm of the project - writing the script, executive producing and possibly directing.

The New Mexico film industry and Sony Pictures Television have worked together on both "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul".
