Gilligan, who also created the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, inked a three-year pact with Sony Pictures Television over the summer amid a hyper-competitive environment in the industry for proven showrunners.
After being rumoured for awhile now, it has been been confirmed that a breaking Bad Movie will start filming this month. Though the film office wouldn't confirm or deny that the project was a Breaking Bad film, the publication claims that a source close to the project confirmed the production.
The multi-Emmy-Award-winning series ran for five seasons and ended in 2013. I loved Breaking Bad, and I love its prequel series Better Call Saul.
Just days after news of a The Walking Dead cashing in on its success by turning spinning the show (the main character is nearly dead) into a brand new movie series, reports have now surfaced that Breaking Bad's creator Vince Gilligan is doing the same thing.
The projected feature film will be around two hours, though it remains unclear whether it will make its first appearance on TV or the big screen. Instead, it seems more likely that Aaron Paul would be the lead in any feature-length outing, with the series finale seeming to leave Jesse Pinkman's future wide open.
Set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Cranston played Walter White, who is transformed from a meek high school science teacher into a ruthless player in the local methamphetamine drug trade.
If the news is indeed to be trusted, it leads us to wonder what sort of form a Breaking Bad movie would take. Would it reveal that Bryan Cranston's Walter White became reanimated and is now leading a zombie apocalypse?
Well, that tracks. This just about the only thing that would've made sense, given that leaked logline, one of the few dangling Breaking Bad plot threads that might sustain an entire film.
