An Actual Breaking Bad Movie Is Starting Production This Bloody Month

An Actual Breaking Bad Movie Is Starting Production This Bloody Month

Breaking Bad fans, we're here to break some good news.

While no cast members from the AMC series have been confirmed to return, series creator Vince Gilligan is spearheading the project after signing a three-year deal renewal with Sony Pictures Television this past July. Nobody's sure if it's a prequel, a continuation of Aaron Paul's narrative or something completely parallel and only tangentially related. This news only leaked due to the New Mexico Film Office putting out the project's title and logline and the Journal figuring out the rest.

According to The Albuquerque Journal the film "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".

A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the USA this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports.

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston confirmed the news when he called into the Dan Patrick Show. It isn't clear at this point whether the film will another prequel like Better Call Saul or pick up where Breaking Bad left off.

"Greenbrier" is the title being floated around for a project incredibly light on details.

This will be the first movie for Gilligan, who also served as an executive producer on The X-Files.

Breaking Bad is widely regarded as one of the greatest television series ever made, winning 16 Primetime Emmy Awards and even entering the Guinness World Records as the most critically acclaimed show of all time in 2013.

Seeing how Walter White met with a fatal end in the final episode of the show, it's unlikely that a film would dare to continue the his story, with Bryan Cranston's character likely showing up in flashbacks at best.

The news follows AMC announcing a series of movies in The Walking Dead franchise continuing the story of Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes. But that saying has never really applied to the Breaking Bad franchise, right?
