According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is now in the process of writing a two-hour movie that, per Complex, will be a sequel continuing the tale of Jesse Pinkman's story following the show's final episode.
According to The Albuquerque Journal - relaying reports from the New Mexico Film Office - filming is scheduled to begin later this month on a Breaking Bad flick, which is now going under the possibly temporary name of "Greenbrier".
It was not immediately clear if the film would land on TV or in theaters, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.
One of the best-reviewed shows in TV history, Breaking Bad earned a total of 16 Emmys, including four best actor prizes for Cranston, and two Golden Globes.
"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad but I honestly have not even read the script", Cranston, 62, said during an appearance on national radio programme The Dan Patrick Show.
Variety confirmed the report that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will be working on the film, although "whether it's destined for multiplexes or television is unclear".
Amid deepening addiction crisis, FDA approves powerful new opioid
USA regulators on Friday approved a fast-acting, super-potent opioid tablet as an alternative to IV painkillers used in hospitals. Other news on opioids focuses on the FDA's armed hunt for counterfeit drugs and the continued threat of fentanyl and heroin.
The plot - a kidnapped man on a quest for freedom - sounds an bad lot like Jesse (Aaron Paul) in the final season, when he was kidnapped by Neo Nazis.
The Journal also reports the title as "Greenbriar", though whether that's the final title is in the air as well.
While the New Mexico Film Office didn't comment on if Greenbrier is linked to the Breaking Bad franchise, production sources confirmed to the paper that it is.
The film office wouldn't confirm or deny that the project was a "Breaking Bad" film. 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.
Even five years after it wrapped, the acclaimed series - about a high school chemistry teacher turned meth manufacturer - remains a worldwide cultural phenomenon due in part to streaming (the entire series is available on Stan) where new fans continue to discover it.
Breaking Bad is available to stream on Netflix.
