Breaking Bad movie is a direct sequel, to premiere on Netflix

Vince Gilligan’s ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Headed To Netflix & AMC

Once completed, the film will initially premiere on Netflix, which has acquired its first-run rights, THR reports.

AMC, Netflix, and producer Sony Pictures Television declined to comment.

So it should probably come as no surprise that Gilligan's next Breaking Bad-themed project, in addition to the spinoff series Better Call Saul which has a fifth season now in the works, is a feature-length sequel to the original series.

AMC's Breaking Bad ended its critically acclaimed five-season run with a finale that brought in a series record 10.3 million viewers.

"Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad". "Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two", he said.

While it has already been speculated that the film would revolve around Aaron Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the feature-length film will in fact follow Pinkman in the aftermath of the series finale which saw him escaping the neo-Nazis that were forcing him to cook meth. He's spent the last few years overseeing spin-off show Better Call Saul (which, heretical opinion forthcoming, is nearly definitely better than Breaking Bad), and he's now deep in production on a Breaking Bad spin-off movie.

I hear the script is being shot as a feature though it has not been determined yet how it will air, as a film or cut into episodes.

This is apparently the movie titled "Greenbrier" that, according to the New Mexico Film Office, was set to shoot in Albuquerque (the setting for Breaking Bad) from November through this month.

This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons.

Aaron Paul, Vince Galligan, and Bryan Cranston pose with their awards for outstanding drama series for Breaking Bad at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.
