Popular American television series, Breaking Bad is reportedly being turned into a feature-length movie. However, it is yet to be confirmed if the creator of the show, Vince Gilligan, is going to release the two-hour movie on television or in cinemas.
Credible sources revealed to the Hollywood Reporter that Vince will not only be taking the directorial seat but will also be penning down the script and seen as the executive producer of the project.
However, significant details about the forthcoming movie remain unclear; a rumoured title, Greenbrier has been floating around but not confirmed. Details about whether this will be a prequel like Better Call Saul or a follow-up of the hit show, Breaking Bad are yet to be established. Moreover, whether the movie will feature the original stars of the show such as Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul awaits a green flag as well.
The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a project titled Greenbrier is expected to start shooting in New Mexico next month. Lead actor, Bryan Cranston revealed on The Dan Patrick Show that he is aware of a Breaking Bad movie but has not read the script, yet.
“I haven’t read the script, I haven’t gotten the script. So there’s a question whether we will even see Walter White in the film,” the four-time Emmy Award winner said. He added that if he is offered to even do a cameo in the film, he would love to be a part of it.
Bryan further revealed that perhaps the movie will focus on completing the unfinished stories of some of the characters which the audience wanted.
“From what I have been told, the idea is to get into those couple of characters who were not completed as far as their journey. I have been contacted but I haven’t read the script so I don’t know if it’s going to be flashback or flash-forward, I have no clue,” the actor said.
The Malclom in the Middle actor said that he is excited about the project and would love to meet the rest of the cast and just be there on the sets as Breaking Bad was the ‘greatest professional period of my life’.
