Following on from the ongoing success of the show's first spin-off series Better Call Saul, it's now been confirmed that a new film based on the original Breaking Bad is in the works. 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 film, with the working title Greenbrier, will begin production in November, according to the Albuquerque Journal, which said the New Mexico Film Office - which has worked closely with the "Bad" and "Saul" production teams over a decade - confirmed the movie.
It was not immediately clear if the film would land on TV or in theaters, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. In the clip, Bryan Cranston says he doesn't think Walter White is dead, which has big implications for what the movie could be. As fans will know, both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are set and filmed in New Mexico. We also don't know if this will be a theatrical release or a made-for-TV movie.
Created by Vince Gilligan, "Breaking Bad" told the story of Walter White, a high school science teacher who responds to a terminal cancer diagnosis by turning into a powerful drug lord. Pinkman, the role actor Aaron Paul won multiple Emmys for, was kept hostage by neo-Nazis in the final episodes of the show before Cranston's character freed him in the series finale.

As reported by the Albuquerque Journal, according to the New Mexico Film Office, a production now titled "Greenbrier" will "begin production in the Duke City mid-November through early February".
It has been reported that Gilligan will be at the helm of the project - writing the script, executive producing and possibly directing. That production will reportedly "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". He's a genius and it's a great story and there's a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open. As you'd expect, multiple Emmy Award-winner Aaron Paul is thought to be closely tied to the project. "But I'm excited about it, because it's Breaking Bad", he said.
