‘Breaking Bad’ Movie in the Works With Series Creator Vince Gilligan

‘Breaking Bad’ Movie in the Works With Series Creator Vince Gilligan

Five years after its finale aired, popular drama series, Breaking Bad, is getting a two-hour movie. While no cast members from the AMC series have been confirmed to return, series creator Vince Gilligan is spearheading the project after signing a three-year deal renewal with Sony Pictures Television this past July.

'Yeah bitch!' It's time to get cooking again because "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan is now working on a two-hour movie extension of the AMC series.

Indeed, there is a strict veil of secrecy over the movie, which has yet to confirm any casting or setting, other than it'll take place in the Breaking Bad universe.

Whether this film will be a prequel involving Bryan Cranston's deceased Walter White or Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman (who was kidnapped by Jack Welker's white supremacist gang in the final season) remains unclear.

While the New Mexico Film Office didn't comment on if Greenbrier is linked to the Breaking Bad franchise, production sources confirmed to the paper that it is.

That same source also reports that the title is now "Greenbriar" and that production in the Duke City is scheduled to kick off in mid-November and run through until early February. It follows the earlier life of Breaking Bad's shady lawyer Saul Goodman, with Bob Odenkirk reprising the lead role.

Breaking Bad was the story of a high school chemistry teacher, Walter White, who turned to producing drugs when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Insiders told THR that Gilligan will have full oversight of the projects, as he'd be the screenwriter, executive producer and could be the director, as well.

The New Mexico film industry and Sony Pictures Television have worked together on both "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul".
