Breaking Bad Movie Coming! Will Walter White And Jesse Return?

A finale for Heisenberg that's been 5 years in the making?

Breaking Bad

Five years on from the end of Breaking Bad, AMC's OTHER flagship show hasn't waned in popularity. Partly thanks to the excellent Better Call Saul spin-off, but also partly to the vague ending that didn't quite offer a full-stop to Walter White's story, the brand endures.

There's long been talk - or at least hope - that Vince Gilligan would bring the show back for some sort of final run dealing with the aftermath of the original finale, but as the years go by, it's looked less and less likely. But that might have just changed.

According to THR, there's a new story set in the Breaking Bad universe coming in the shape of a two hour movie (though it's unclear if that will be theatrical or made for TV like AMC's Walking Dead movies). Gilligan is returning to work on the movie for Sony Pictures Television.

Inevitably, at this stage, details are limited, but THR mention that it could either be another prequel or a follow-up. Given the format, a prequel wouldn't make a lot of sense (particularly when SPT could score another extended win like Better Call Saul with another spin-off) so it could be that we're looking at the possibility of the return of Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman.

On that front, the fact that The Albuquerque Journal are reporting that the movie will come with a logline saying it “tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom," which very much seems to follow Jesse's story.

That same source also reports that the title is currently “Greenbriar" and that production in the Duke City is scheduled to kick off in mid-November and run through until early February. So it might not be too long until we get to see it.

Exciting stuff.
