"The official description of the film states: "'Greenbrier' tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". A 2014 analysis pegged Breaking Bad as the most binge-watched show of all time, and in 2016, Netflix named the series among those binged the most quickly after analyzing over 100 TV series across its service in more than 190 countries.

Speaking on The Dan Patrick Show, Bryan Cranston (who starred as chemistry teacher turned drugs kingpin Walter White in Breaking Bad) confirmed the Breaking Bad movie is being made.

Sources tell The Hollywood reporter that Netflix has been given first-run rights to the project, with AMC set to air it after.

No one would comment, but word is that the two networks might have their roles reversed, with Netflix taking first window and AMC second.

Back in November we reported that a Breaking Bad movie was in the works and that it might follow Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman.

In 2013, shortly before the series finale aired (and just after picking up an Emmy for Best Drama), Gilligan said, "Television has changed a lot in six years".

"I think Netflix kept us on the air", he said at the time.

We're getting a clearer picture of what Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad movie will look like.

The report suggests that the movie will actually flip the script on Breaking Bad's relationship with streaming. I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two [if not for Netflix]. He is joined by producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, who have worked with Gilligan both on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. Production is believed to be wrapping up this month in New Mexico. Cranston previously confirmed the film was happening but would not say whether or not he would be involved.

A fifth season of spin-off show, Better Call Saul, focusing on White's dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman, is set to air this year.
