'Breaking Bad' two-hour movie reportedly in the works

Following on from the ongoing success of the show's first spin-off series Better Call Saul, it's now been confirmed that a new film based on the original Breaking Bad is in the works.

AMC's Breaking Bad ended its critically acclaimed five-season run with a finale that brought in a series record 10.3 million viewers. Nobody's sure if it's a prequel, a continuation of Aaron Paul's narrative or something completely parallel and only tangentially related. The plot involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" (does that sound like Jesse Pinkman to anyone?), and production is set to begin in (where else?) New Mexico next month.

Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, who worked as producers on both Breaking Bad and the popular spinoff Better Call Saul, are also both attached to the project, which has been given secret project title of "Greenbrier".

At this time, it's unclear whether this two-hour movie will air on TV or be released theatrically, as details are scare, but either way, a Breaking Bad revival is coming our way, according to The Hollywood Reporter!

Sony Pictures Television, which produced Breaking Bad and has a three-year deal with Gilligan, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a project with that title is due to start shooting in mid-November. We don't know if this is a feature film or a TV movie.

The sources say that Gilligan may direct the movie, and he'll be writing it as well as executive producing. It is also unknown if either of Breaking Bad's main stars-Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul-are set to return. You can really tell Gilligan and his crew take great pride in the story, so I have absolute confidence that this movie will meet fan expectations.
