Last November, news broke that a mysterious Breaking Bad movie was in the works from the show's original creator Vince Gilligan. Though details were scarce, people have been wondering what it's going to be about. Some have suggested it be about whether the blue meth is still be distributed by someone else, others want a really boring prequel about Walt going through his teaching career.
Now, a source tells that “Netflix will have first-run rights to the top-secret project, which will then air on AMC."
"It's a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale]," Cranston said on The Dan Patrick Show.
At this point there's no clear timeline on when the film is due out, but production reportedly started late last year in New Mexico. There's always the possibility that Walt Jr. grows up to follow in dad's footsteps using the money left to him in that trust fund.
It will be a sequel!
Unlike Better Call Saul, which is basically a prequel with some portions telling the story of Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman after the events of Breaking Bad, the Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel. Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman will likely be the lead character in the movie, and it will trace his adventures post the Breaking Bad finale, when he ran like the devil was after him. He might have ended up with Brock, the young son of his dead girlfriend Andrea. We might see a more mature version of Jesse, so likely we will not hear him utter words like “Yo” or “Bitch!” again. But then again, this is Jesse we are talking about.
