‘Breaking Bad’ Movie In The Works From Series Creator Vince Gilligan

Adjust Comment Print

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is at the helm of the project, which could yet be either for TV or a theater release.

According to the logline, "Greenbrier" tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.

The New Mexico Film Office has remained tight-lipped when questioned about the project and is sticking to the "Greenbrier" project name. Given the format, a prequel wouldn't make a lot of sense (particularly when SPT could score another extended win like Better Call Saul with another spin-off) so it could be that we're looking at the possibility of the return of Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman.

Filming will be carried out in Alburquerque from mid November through to February next year.

So, on a scale of one to 10, how psyched are you for a Breaking Bad movie?

Gilligan, who also created the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, inked a three-year pact with Sony Pictures Television over the summer amid a hyper-competitive environment in the industry for proven showrunners.

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.

Variety confirmed the creator of the series that saw its final days in 2013 is working on a new movie to tie in with the show. There's not much information on when the film will be set - so whether it will take the story up as a sequel like Netflix hit Better Call Saul, or if it'll be a prequel or simply a Breaking Bad universe spin off.

Sources told THR that Gilligan is penning the script, producing, and potentially directing.
