Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is at the helm of the project, which could yet be either for TV or a theater release. Nobody's sure if it's a prequel, a continuation of Aaron Paul's narrative or something completely parallel and only tangentially related.
Greenbrier's logline says this film "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". A prequel series, Better Call Saul, was quickly greenlighted before the initial series concluded, and it was recently renewed for a fifth season set to air in 2019. Now, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has confirmed the existence of the Breaking Bad movie as well, b is Cranston appearing in the film in some way, shape or form?
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).
This will be the first movie for Gilligan, who also served as an executive producer on The X-Files.
The title is supposed to be Greenbriar, though it's unknown whether it's a working title.
Obviously, Aaron Paul's returning for the project, though there's now no word as to which other Breaking Bad cast members might appear.
Breaking Bad was a critical breakout and ran for a successful five season. Series creator Vince Gilligan has announced that he's taking the Breaking Bad franchise to the silver screen.
Gilligan has previously stated that he left Jesse's story open on objective so that fans could decide what would actually happen to him after the series ended. With his former student Jesse Pinkman played by Paul, White turns his life around by making and selling drugs.
