Breaking Bad Movie to Reportedly Follow Jesse, Aaron Paul to Return

According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is now in the process of writing a two-hour movie that, per Complex, will be a sequel continuing the tale of Jesse Pinkman's story following the show's final episode.

AMC's upcoming Breaking Bad movie will reportedly follow Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman after the events of the series finale.

One possible title (which could definitely be a rumor per THR's sources): Greenbrier, and it just so happens that the New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a project with the title of Greenbrier is slated to shoot in the region.

As reported by the Albuquerque Journal, according to the New Mexico Film Office, a production now titled "Greenbrier" will "begin production in the Duke City mid-November through early February".

Details are sparse, with no information on what shape the movie would take - a prequel like Better Call Saul or something else - or whether any of Breaking Bad's stars will return.

In the wake of the series finale, Gilligan spoke at length about Jesse's final moments, pondering whether Jesse really did make it out alive or if he was caught and captured. I think we've waited long enough.

Series creator Vince Gilligan is said to be overseeing the project, but that's about all that's being reported right now. But I honestly have not even read the script ...

"If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely". At least a couple of the characters who were not completed, as far as their journey. In the finale episode, Jack Welker (Michael Bowen), the uncle of Todd Alquist (Jesse Plemons) and the leader of a White Supremacist Gang, brings a shackled Jesse to his compound, where Walt meant to meet them. While I know he's returned in Better Call Saul, if we are to give another character their time in the spotlight I'd want it to be Gus, because then we can catapult Esposito into Oscar chatter and I'd be a happy fan indeed.

The series, which ran from 2008 until 2013, told the story of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer.

He said: "I love that guy [Jesse] so much".

Two executive producers from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul - Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein - are also tipped to be involved.
