New Breaking Bad film confirmed

New Breaking Bad film confirmed

Either way, we're pretty excited for the upcoming Breaking Bad sequel! Pinkman, the role actor Aaron Paul won multiple Emmys for, was kept hostage by neo-Nazis in the final episodes of the show before Cranston's character freed him in the series finale.

"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad", Cranston said, but he added "I honestly have not even read the script".

The show's creator Vince Gilligan told Variety that he is working on a two-hour film to tie in with the cult series, though hasn't divulged yet if it'll be for TV or the big screen. A prequel series on AMC, "Better Call Saul", starring Bob Odenkirk, wrapped its fourth season in October.

Production for the film is expected to begin mid-November at New Mexico.

Critic Dan Barrett, from the online newsletter Always Be Watching, agreed, likening it to an announcement this week that AMC, the network that aired Breaking Bad in the USA, would soon be making three films based on its popular TV series The Walking Dead. Still standing, of course, are Skyler and Walt Jr. -sorry, Flynn-Jesse Pinkman, and Saul Goodman, whose own series Better Call Saul offers the occasional glimpse to his dismal life in the wake of the events of Breaking Bad.

"I can't wait to see all those people again... even if I just come by to visit!"

Details on the proposed project are now scarce, and it's not yet clear whether the film is being planned for a theatrical or television debut.

While no official details have been released, the Journal says the film "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". "Absolutely. If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely", Cranston said. It follows a high school chemistry teacher Walter White, essayed by Cranston, who finds extreme measures to earn a living after he realises that his salary will not be enough to support his family. 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.

While word from Cranston on Breaking Bad is essentially gospel, some other intel has also appeared regarding the apparent production.
