Tread lightly. We apparently have not seen the last of “Breaking Bad.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour “Breaking Bad” movie, though it remains unclear if it will be released in theaters or made for television. The news was later confirmed by Variety.
Details on the project, which have been floating around the industry with a possible fake / working title of “Greenbrier,” are sparse. THR wrote that It’s unclear if the movie would be another prequel – like AMC’s “Better Call Saul” – or a follow-up of some sort. It’s also unclear whether any of the original stars, such as Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul, are involved in the new project, which sources stress will be set in the existing “Breaking Bad” franchise.
Gilligan, THR sources say, will pen the script, executive produce and possibly directly. Production is expected to begin this month in New Mexico. The New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a project with the title of “Greenbrier” is slated to shoot in the region.
The Albuquerque Journal published a logline stating the movie “tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom . “
” Breaking Bad “, which aired for five seasons on AMC (2008-1
3), told the story of Walter White (Cranston), an unassuming high school chemistry teacher who turns to his former student Jesse Pinkman, turns to a life of crime by producing and selling meth. By the time the show’s run ended, it was widely considered to be among the greatest television dramas of all time. Cranston won four Emmy Awards for Best Actor in a Drama, and Paul captured three Emmys for best supporting actor.
If the movie were to pick up where the 2013 final left off, it would seem Cranston would not be involved because, well, fans know why.
In a 2013 interview with GQ, Gilligan shared a theory about Jesse’s destiny, saying that he would like to believe Pinkman got away and found refuge somewhere far from New Mexico.  “The way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life. You want that for the kid. He deserves it, “Gilligan told GQ. Men med hensyn til Breaking Bad precedent, han sagde også at det er mere sandsynligt at Pinkman blev recaptured efter en dag eller to, og derefter arresteret for killing to føderale agenter.
