Yes, you read that right. A Breaking Bad movie is in the works.
It has been announced that Vince Gilligan is creating a movie set in the world of Breaking Bad. We have no idea when during the Breaking Bad timeline the movie will be set, but we know that it will be set in the existing BB franchise.
Sources say that the working title of the movie is “Greenbrier”. It will allegedly follow a kidnapped man’s escape and quest for freedom. This might be a total shot in the dark, but could they be talking about Jesse Pinkman? Aaron Paul’s character was last seen escaping from Jack’s gang after they kidnapped him and forced him to make meth. Could the new film be about what happened to Jesse next? We can dream.
If you’re nervous that the movie will somehow obstruct the original material, rest assured. Vince Gilligan (the mind behind Breaking Bad) will be in complete control, writing the script, executive producing and maybe even directing. The BB spin-off series Better Call Saul has been a huge success so our hopes are understandably high for the one-off two-hour feature.
We will be sharing more exciting details when they are announced.
