Breaking Bad movie is officially in the works

Bryan Cranston Breaking Bad Spin Off

The projected feature film will be around two hours, though it remains unclear whether it will make its first appearance on TV or the big screen. Nobody's sure if it's a prequel, a continuation of Aaron Paul's narrative or something completely parallel and only tangentially related.

The Albuquerque Journal have also reported that shooting will begin in the New Mexico city - where the original show was set and filmed - later this month, and is set to continue through to early February.

Gilligan's current project, Better Call Saul, chronicling Saul Goodman's small-time lawyer who takes his own journey into criminal activities, is up to its fifth season, airing in 2019.

Well, that tracks. This just about the only thing that would've made sense, given that leaked logline, one of the few dangling Breaking Bad plot threads that might sustain an entire film. The article also says it'll be called "Greenbriar", but whether that's gonna be the final title is not yet confirmed. In the finale episode, Jack Welker (Michael Bowen), the uncle of Todd Alquist (Jesse Plemons) and the leader of a White Supremacist Gang, brings a shackled Jesse to his compound, where Walt meant to meet them.

Luckily, it'll be helmed by series creator, Vince Gilligan, so we can rest easy knowing the project is in good hands.

"Breaking Bad" is the story of Walter H. White, played by Bryan Cranston, a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with advanced lung cancer at the beginning of the series.

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.

The news follows AMC announcing a series of movies in The Walking Dead franchise continuing the story of Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes. Until then, Breaking Bad fans may want to watch this space for more.
