And now we may have some answers, as /Film is reporting that the likeliest scenario is probably true: the Breaking Bad movie picks up with Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman following the events of the series finale as he attempts to escape Albuquerque. According to the New Mexico Film Office (via Albuquerque Journal), a Sony project carrying that title is gearing up to film later this month in New Mexico, the state in which Breaking Bad shot a majority of its episodes. We'll be sure to let you know when we find out that information.
The series, which ran from 2008 until 2013, told the story of Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer.
It is one of the best-reviewed shows in TV history and earned a total of 16 Emmys, including four best actor prizes for Cranston, and two Golden Globes.
Backing up these claims is the fact that show creator Vince Gilligan just signed a three-year overall deal with Sony.
"Breaking Bad" fans will no longer have to tread lightly - a film sequel to the iconic television show is reportedly in the works.
Basically, all we know right now is that the movie - which has apparently been floating around under the working title (or is it a fake title?) of Greenbrier - is apparently in the works! But I honestly have not even read the script ...
In addition to Gilligan, the source shared that executive producer's Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (who worked on Breaking Bad and its prequel TV series Better Call Saul) will be working on the forthcoming film as well. Meanwhile, the spin-off series Better Call Saul recently finished its fourth season and is set to return for a fifth season next year. Despite him not knowing if Walter White would appear in the series or not, he's excited to see what the future holds for the franchise because of how much it's affected his life.
It seems as though AMC wants to create giant spinoffs of their most famous projects, and I am not buying it so far.
