Breaking Bad

Story by Jack Foley

A BREAKING Bad movie is reportedly in the works with original series creator Vince Gilligan.

Although details are being kept to a minimum, it is thought that the writer is preparing for a two-hour film – although it remains unclear whether this is intended for cinematic or just TV release.

It’s also unclear whether any of the original stars, such as Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul, are involved in the new project, although it will be set within the existing Breaking Bad universe set up by that show and furthered in the critically-acclaimed prequel series Better Call Saul.

The Hollywood Reporter is quoting sources for the story but has yet to secure any statements of confirmation from either Gilligan or Sony Pictures Television.

There is a possible working title, however, called Greenbrier, and the New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a project with the title of Greenbrier is slated to shoot in in the region.

A possible storyline being touted concerns the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.

Production is expected to begin this month (November 2018) in New Mexico with Gilligan set to pen the script, executive produce and possibly direct.

Breaking Bad became a critical breakout for the AMC channel in the US and ran for five seasons.

AMC and producers Sony TV quickly green-lit the prequel Better Call Saul as Gilligan’s follow-up series. Saul, featuring Bob Odenkirk’s small-time lawyer, has now been renewed for a fifth season, which is set to air in 2019.
