Stop What You're Doing: There's a Breaking Bad Movie in the Works

Breaking Bad

Last night, in the midst of a massive US election, some pretty huge entertainment news also dropped with the leak that a Breaking Bad movie is not only in the works, it starts filming this month. Such is the case with Better Call Saul, a spin-off prequel that predates the events of Breaking Bad by six years.

Insiders told THR that Gilligan will have full oversight of the projects, as he'd be the screenwriter, executive producer and could be the director, as well.

According to The Journal, citing the New Mexico Film Office, the film will be titled Greenbrier, and production is scheduled to begin mid-November through February.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, which reported the original story, the Breaking Bad movie is to begin filming soon, like this month. After rumors of the movie's existence dropped yesterday, we confirmed today that the film will focus on Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) following the conclusion of the series. It's been less than 24 hours since news about a potential Breaking Bad movie hit, and since then, we've been getting little tidbits here and there about what the film could entail and who will be returning. Jesse as a character was one of the show's best, so it's exciting and intriguing to think about seeing more of him in yet another Breaking Bad spinoff. We'll be sure to let you know when we find out that information.

Details on the proposed project are now scarce, and it's not yet clear whether the film is being planned for a theatrical or television debut. After all, the series axed not only main character and driving force Walter White, but also his chief pursuant (and loving brother-in-law) Hank Schrader, primary villain Gus Fring, and everyone's favorite iron-fisted curmudgeon Mike Ehrmantraut. Stay tuned for more news about the Breaking Bad movie.

After the 16-Emmy-winning show ended in 2013, Gilligan created Better Call Saul, which follows the titular dodgy lawyer played by Bob Odenkirk.
