Vince Gilligan is working on a Breaking Bad movie. It is not known if it will be for TV or cinema, and if Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are involved.
Are you enjoying Better Call Saul, to the point of missing more and more Breaking Bad? Then prepare to "scream like Flanders".
It is a curious note, because originally (and much earlier) the local newspaper The Albuquerque Journal proclaimed that a Breaking Bad movie will begin filming in New Mexico, under the code name "Greenbrier", and that in fact it will start production in the middle of November and until February 2019. The description of "Greenbrier" speaks of the escape of a kidnapped man and his search for freedom.
The newspaper even mentioned that Vince Gilligan – creator of both series – would be in charge. But it is until a few minutes ago, when Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and other media have confirmed the information as valid, but still the unknown as to whether it will be a movie or TV, and if Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would return as stellar (which it seems difficult in the case of Walter White, especially if it was a sequel). But they do say that Vince Gilligan would be director, writer and producer of the project. Its head producers – Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein – would also be on board.
Representatives from Sony Pictures Television and Gilligan have not responded to media inquiries.
What theory do they have? Ours is that it is a connection between Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, which would allow practically ALL the actors to appear. Another idea that comes to mind is about the Breaking Bad VR project we told you about a year ago, although all that filming time in Albuquerque does not match what a virtual reality experience would last. The truth is that a film called and without Walter Hartwell White as a star, would not be so striking.
In any case, let's give the benefit of the doubt to the expert storyteller, Vince Gilligan.
