Series creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour movie based on his beloved Emmy-winning AMC drama, Breaking Bad.
It’s not yet clear if the project is for television or theaters nor do we know if the original cast will return, however both series stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have stated in interviews that they would love to return to their roles.
For the few that have not watched the exceptional show, Breaking Bad is the story of Walter H. White, played by Bryan Cranston, a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with advanced lung cancer at the beginning of the series. He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, with the aim of securing his family’s financial future before he dies.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, which first reported the news, production is scheduled to start later this month in New Mexico under the title Greenbrier, and is said to “follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom” — suggesting it might focus on Jesse Pinkman (Paul) following the events in the Breaking Bad series finale, which aired in 2013.
