A 'Breaking Bad' movie is in the works

The Albuquerque Journal is reporting that production will soon be underway on "Greenbrier", which a "source close to the project" confirmed is actually a "Breaking Bad" movie.

It's now unclear if the project will be released to theatres or television.

The project has the working title of Greenbrier (if you recognize that name, it's because it's a very common plant) and has been confirmed by the New Mexico Film Office.

"The kidnapped man is Jesse Pinkman and the movie will follow his escape from Albuquerque following the bloody events of the series finale", SlashFilm writes.

Gilligan is working on a two-hour film, though whether it's destined for multiplexes or television is unclear.

That's still speculation though, and stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have given nothing away yet.

From acclaimed writer, producer, director Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad was produced by Sony Pictures Television with Mark Johnson (Gran Via) and Michelle MacLaren serving as executive producers. Would it reveal that Bryan Cranston's Walter White became reanimated and is now leading a zombie apocalypse?

Five years on from the end of Breaking Bad, AMC's OTHER flagship show hasn't waned in popularity.

So, on a scale of one to 10, how psyched are you for a Breaking Bad movie? I loved Breaking Bad, and I love its prequel series Better Call Saul. Instead, it seems more likely that Aaron Paul would be the lead in any feature-length outing, with the series finale seeming to leave Jesse Pinkman's future wide open. I don't know. I will say that when Better Call Saul was announced, I had nearly the same thought: do we need to see the backstory of Saul Goodman?

'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.

Filming will be carried out in Alburquerque from mid November through to February next year.
