‘Breaking Bad' Is Getting the Movie Treatment, so Tread Lightly

Gilligan, who also created the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, is now working on a two-hour film, according to Variety.

While he heavily suggested that series creator Vince Gilligan is hard at work on developing a feature-length Breaking Bad project, Cranston wasn't as forthcoming about the potential return of protagonist Walter White.

It wasn't immediately clear if the film would be televised on AMC, where the series was first shown, or in movie theaters. The plot involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" (does that sound like Jesse Pinkman to anyone?), and production is set to begin in (where else?) New Mexico next month. Let us know what you think a Breaking Bad movie would, should, and could be about! 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.

Over the course of the years, many TV shows have been converted into feature films and vice versa. The answer was a resounding "yes", as Saul has become one of the best shows on TV right now (and is even better than Breaking Bad, in my humble opinion). "And I can't wait to see those people even if I just come by to visit".

The film is largely expected to follow the next steps of Jesse Pinkman, the ex-pupil of Bryan Cranston's Walter White.

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

A project by the name of Greenbriar - possibly a code name - is set to star production in mid-November in Albuquerque, according to the New Mexico Film Office. "If ['Breaking Bad' creator] Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely, yeah".

The comments from Cranston definitely confirm the Breaking Bad movie is a sequel to the show, which again aks the question: how could Walt appear?

It seems as though AMC wants to create giant spinoffs of their most famous projects, and I am not buying it so far.
