A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the U.S. this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports. Sadly, there's no word on whether or not original stars, such as Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris or Aaron Paul, will return for the new story. Their sources then revealed that Greenbrier is actually a Breaking Bad film. It adds that production is starting in New Mexico this month and that the movie is shooting under the project name Greenbrier. Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and followed protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl. The upcoming film will apparently be a sequel of sorts, and it will follow the events that happened with Pinkman after the show's final episode.
Following reports that "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan is prepping a two-hour...
"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad but I honestly have not even read the script", Cranston, 62, said during an appearance on national radio programme The Dan Patrick Show.
"If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely".
Albuquerque is not often where one turns for hot breaking movie and television news. Pinkman was played by Aaron Paul. Intriguingly, he teased that the movie may feature a couple of characters whose story arcs were not seen through completion. Would this be another prequel in the vein of the phenomenal AMC series Better Call Saul?
Breaking Bad was a critical breakout and ran for a successful five season.
Of course, there begs the question of "do we need a Breaking Bad film?" A prequel series on AMC, "Better Call Saul", starring Bob Odenkirk, wrapped its fourth season in October.
