The 'Breaking Bad' Movie Could Debut on Netflix, Is A Jesse Story

Deadline reports that "that the two networks may have their roles reversed, with Netflix taking first window and AMC second".

Netflix and AMC did not immediately respond to a request for comment or confirmation.

And now for a little Breaking news.

A Breaking Bad movie starring Aaron Paul as Jesse will be coming to Netflix and AMC, according to unnamed sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. It is being written by Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, and given that AMC has usa streaming rights only, it is unclear where it will air in other areas of the world.

I think Netflix kept us on the air.


The report suggests that the movie will actually flip the script on Breaking Bad's relationship with streaming. "Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two", he said.

Gilligan, who sources say is writing and directing the Breaking Bad movie, will be working alongside Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson. The (very brief) synopsis for the flick revealed that it will follow "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom", which seems like it pretty much has to be describing Jesse, who spent a significant amount of time during the final season kidnapped by a vicious gang before being liberated by Walter in the series finale.

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White in Breaking Bad, also confirmed that a sequel flick was in the works.

This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons.

'I don't know if there's an appearance - flashbacks, flash forwards - but I'm excited about it because it's Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can't wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit'.
