Breaking Bad Movie Gets More Intriguing Details

Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and followed protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl.

After being rumoured for awhile now, it has been been confirmed that a breaking Bad Movie will start filming this month. It is unclear whether cast members from the original series, led by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, would return for the film, but I hear the hope is that deals will close for actors to reprise their roles.

As THR reports, Gilligan will begin writing the script, and there's word that he may act as one of the film's executive producers and the film's director.

Production is scheduled to begin mid-November through early February in Albuquerque.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Vince Gilligan is creating a two-hour movie that will be a new chapter of the story, which will be called Greenbrier. But Cranston nevertheless said he would "absolutely" be interested in bringing White back should show creator Vince Gilligan ask him to do so.




According to the outlet, the movie "will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying finale". After all, the series axed not only main character and driving force Walter White, but also his chief pursuant (and loving brother-in-law) Hank Schrader, primary villain Gus Fring, and everyone's favorite iron-fisted curmudgeon Mike Ehrmantraut. There's the question of whether or not we'll even see Walter White in this movie.

The Journal also reports the title as "Greenbriar", though whether that's the final title is in the air as well.

"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those, at least a couple of the characters, who were not completed as far as their journey", he told radio personality Dan Patrick.

He said: "I think there's an excellent chance of any or all of these folks showing up.[but] you will not see Walt or Jesse in Season 4 of "Better Call Saul". But I'm excited about it, because it's Breaking Bad", he said.
