Bryan Cranston confirms ‘Breaking Bad’ movie in development

Breaking Bad - the movie - is coming.

'Yeah bitch!' It's time to get cooking again because "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan is now working on a two-hour movie extension of the AMC series.

The Albuquerque Journal is reporting that production will soon be underway on "Greenbrier", which a "source close to the project" confirmed is actually a "Breaking Bad" movie. Likewise, it's unknown whether it'll be a prequel a la AMC's Better Call Saul or will take place after the events of Breaking Bad's epic 2013 finale.

Now to celebrate with a special Los Pollos Hermanos dinner.

Cranston yesterday responded to questions about that reported addition to the Breaking Bad canon, telling The Dan Patrick Show he'd heard rumours about the film's development.

"Breaking Bad" revolved around White, a stressed high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer.


Gilligan will write, produce and likely direct the project, which is set to begin production in New Mexico later this month. In the finale episode, Jack Welker (Michael Bowen), the uncle of Todd Alquist (Jesse Plemons) and the leader of a White Supremacist Gang, brings a shackled Jesse to his compound, where Walt meant to meet them.

U.S. entertainment industry website Deadline reports that it is unclear if cast members from the original series, which was toplined by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, will return for what is envisioned as a standalone Breaking Bad story.

In an interview on Thursday, Cranston acknowledged speaking to Gilligan about the movie but said he hadn't yet received or read the script.

"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into ... at least a couple of the characters that were not completed as far as their journey".

Someone better call Saul, because we need to know the fine print of this exciting news. As you'd expect, multiple Emmy Award-winner Aaron Paul is thought to be closely tied to the project. We know Breaking Bad is one of the most-watched shows on the streaming service, and they played a huge part in saving Breaking Bad when ratings were that good in the first two seasons of the show.

Breaking Bad is available to stream on Netflix. 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.
