We have seemingly good news and bad news…

We all got excited a few months ago when it was announced that a Breaking Bad movie was on the cards. The feature is set to be written and directed by series creator Vince Gilligan and is expected to air on both Netflix and AMC.

While details regarding the plot were few, it is set to follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom, with many believing that the man in question is Jesse Pinkman.

But, the actor behind the meth cook, Aaron Paul, has now sent our withdrawal cravings into overdrive by revealing that he doesn’t even know about the project!

“Rumors are funny — I once heard a rumor that I was being cast as Han Solo,” he said. “I haven’t heard anything about the Breaking Bad movie.

But before you freak out, the good news is that he continued by saying, “If there is [a movie] and it comes together I’d love to be a part of it.”

He also noted that, “Walter dies, so… it has to star Jesse.”

Let’s hold thumbs!
