Bryan Cranston confirms ‘Breaking Bad’ movie in development

Breaking Bad

Last night, in the midst of a massive USA election, some pretty huge entertainment news also dropped with the leak that a Breaking Bad movie is not only in the works, it starts filming this month.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vince Gilligan, the creator of the series, is working on a two-hour film.

It's not yet clear if the project is for television or theaters. Nobody's sure if it's a prequel, a continuation of Aaron Paul's narrative or something completely parallel and only tangentially related.

As reported by the Albuquerque Journal, according to the New Mexico Film Office, a production now titled "Greenbrier" will "begin production in the Duke City mid-November through early February".

The New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a movie called "Greenbrier", said to be the title, will begin production in Albuquerque mid-November through early February, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

Variety reports the two-hour film, now called Greenbriar, will begin filming this month.

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".

Besides Paul's return, other details - namely, will the film see Bryan Cranston reprise his iconic role as Walter White? - are yet to emerge.

Gilligan will write, executive produce and possibly direct the project. Cranston's character, Walter White, died at the end of that show.

Was five seasons of Breaking Bad not quite enough for you? In the "Breaking Bad" finale, Jesse escaped his imprisonment, and was last seen speeding away in a auto as he raced toward freedom.

Gilligan created and produced both "Breaking Bad" and its subsequent prequel spin-off series "Better Call Saul" for Sony's TV arm.

If you need a distraction from the election, will the news that a Breaking Bad movie is in the works suffice?

"Breaking Bad" fans are about to get to find out what happened to one very important character in the series. I don't know. I will say that when Better Call Saul was announced, I had nearly the same thought: do we need to see the backstory of Saul Goodman?
