Breaking Bad

Story by Jack Foley

THE long mooted Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel based around the character of Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be offered to Netflix, which will have first-run rights, and then AMC – the channel that helped to turn the original series into a phenomenon in the first place.

As yet, there has been no official confirmation for any of this.

But as previously reported, the Breaking Bad movie will be written by original series creator Vince Gilligan, who will also executive produce alongside franchise collaborators Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Gilligan is also being touted as director.

Plot details are being kept secret but it is understood that the story will follow the escape of a kidnapped man (Paul’s Jesse) and his quest for freedom.

Paul earned three supporting actor Emmy wins for his role on Breaking Bad.

It is not yet known whether his co-star, Bryan Cranston, will reprise his role as Walter White – either in flashbacks or flash forwards. Cranston has hinted, however, that he would welcome any chance to be reunited with the creative team behind the series.
