Rumoured Breaking Bad Movie Is Probably Happening

Given that Vince Gilligan has been busy with Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul, fans of the original show probably weren't expecting him to be cooking up a movie based on the idea.

On the heels of Rick Grimes making his cinematic debut, we're going back to everyone's favorite roving meth lab with a Breaking Bad movie; thus begins the AMC cinematic universe.

According to a report in Variety, the show's creator Vince Gilligan is working on a new film that ties in with the much-loved show.

The film is largely expected to follow the next steps of Jesse Pinkman, the ex-pupil of Bryan Cranston's Walter White. It was followed by the prequel series Better Call Saul, focused on Bob Odenkirk's small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill, which just got renewed for a fifth season. Cranston addressed that topic on The Dan Patrick Show, telling the former sportscaster that he's unsure if he'll reprise his role in the future.

While a distributor has yet to be revealed, most theatrical movies and traditional television projects are announced well in advance.

That's still speculation though, and stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have given nothing away yet.

A movie set to start filming in mid-November is being linked to TV series "Breaking Bad". The previous report noted that production would commence in New Mexico next month.

Last year, Gilligan told News Breakfast he felt a lot of pressure to nail the final episode, watched live by more than 10 million people when it aired in the US.

He signed a three-year agreement with Sony Pictures Television in July, which raises the possibility that the "Breaking Bad" project may be destined for TV.

Breaking Bad, the AMC drama that ended its hugely successful run in 2013, is now reportedly said to be getting a feature film. Breaking Bad wasn't above employing flashbacks. This news only leaked due to the New Mexico Film Office putting out the project's title and logline and the Journal figuring out the rest.
