Vince Gilligan Working on Breaking Bad Movie


United States entertainment industry website Deadline reports that it is unclear if cast members from the original series, which was toplined by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, will return for what is envisioned as a standalone Breaking Bad story.

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.

According to THR, there's a new story set in the Breaking Bad universe coming in the shape of a two hour movie (though it's unclear if that will be theatrical or made for TV like AMC's Walking Dead movies). Gilligan created and has also directed episodes of Better Call Saul.

Specific details, such as if the main cast will include the show's iconic pair Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, or if the movie is due for a theatrical or TV movie release, are yet to be announced.

As they report, "a source close to the project said it's about the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom", which should have fans doing their best Walter White impersonation as they scream in unison: "Jesse!"

If a Breaking Bad movie were actually happening - if, as the Albuquerque Journal claimed, Vince Gilligan really was spearheading the project and taking it into production this month - we certainly would've heard about it before now, and definitelywouldn't be hearing about it for the first time via the Albuquerque Journal (extremely Bobby Bottleservice voice: "No disrespect").

They say all good things must come to an end.

Gilligan told Entertainment Weekly he'd love to see a reunion of the characters Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul). "Peter [Gould] wants it, the writers do, the actors do". We don't know if anyone from the original show will be back to reprise their roles.
