‘Breaking Bad’ to reportedly be made into a film

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. Production is expected to begin this month in New Mexico.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour filmm extension of the series, according to a new report.

While there has yet to be any confirmation from series creator Vince Gilligan or Sony Pictures, the film office did point out that Sony Pictures is behind the production of the upcoming film. Most of the details remain under wraps and it's unclear whether original stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will return.

And now we may have some answers, as /Film is reporting that the likeliest scenario is probably true: the Breaking Bad movie picks up with Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman following the events of the series finale as he attempts to escape Albuquerque.

Why it matters: Breaking Bad debuted on January 20, 2008, and ran for five seasons. It follows a high school chemistry teacher Walter White, essayed by Cranston, who finds extreme measures to earn a living after he realises that his salary will not be enough to support his family.

Seeing how Walter White met with a fatal end in the final episode of the show, it's unlikely that a film would dare to continue the his story, with Bryan Cranston's character likely showing up in flashbacks at best.

Indeed, there is a strict veil of secrecy over the movie, which has yet to confirm any casting or setting, other than it'll take place in the Breaking Bad universe. It appears we'll get to find out as part of this Breaking Bad movie, but it'll be interesting to see exactly what this is.

The feature will be set in the pre-existing'Breaking Bad world, and it has been suggested that Bob Odenkirk, who starred as Saul Goodman in the spin-off "Better Call Saul", could make an appearance.
