Some wonderful news has arrived for fans of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad! Allegedly, the film (codenamed Greenbriar) would follow Jesse Pinkman in the aftermath of Breaking Bad's explosive finale, but who else would be in it?
The Breaking Bad movie is reportedly headed to Netflix. Now THR confirms that the film is a sequel following Jesse and that the film will air first on Netflix before running on AMC, the network that originally carried Breaking Bad. There's no word yet on when the Breaking Bad movie would start shooting, but it sounds like the project is coming together quickly.
Netflix and AMC have a pretty close relationship.
This release situation shouldn't be much of a surprise, considering the success that Breaking Bad found on Netflix.
From acclaimed writer, producer, director Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad was produced by Sony Pictures Television with Mark Johnson (Gran Via) and Michelle MacLaren serving as executive producers.
And now it looks like it will be aired on Netflix, according to Deadline.
Breaking Bad creator Gilligan wrote and directed the film himself.
"I don't know if there's an appearance - flashbacks, flash forwards - but I'm excited about it because it's Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can't wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit". It's unclear whether or not the movie will air as one continuous feature, or get chopped into multiple installments. We're not sure if Cranston will return as Walter White - his character's end was, at best, ambiguous - but the actor has confirmed that he's at least seen the script, so maybe...?
"Let's put it to rest", Cranston told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
We're all crossing our fingers that this movie includes everybody's favorite teacher-turned-drug kingpin.
