A BREAKING BAD Movie Might Be Happening

Breaking Bad Movie Jesse Pinkman Escape

Breaking Bad Movie Jesse Pinkman Escape

After word broke earlier this week that a Breaking Bad movie was on the way, fans shared their passionate responses, both positive and negative, all over social media. It's also not yet clear if the original cast is back - though it's hard to imagine any Breaking Bad film without series stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, both of whom have repeatedly said in interviews they'd be down for returning to the franchise (presumably on spin-off Better Call Saul).

Sony Pictures Television, which produced Breaking Bad and has a three-year deal with Gilligan, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Why it matters: Breaking Bad debuted on January 20, 2008, and ran for five seasons.

That same source also reports that the title is now "Greenbriar" and that production in the Duke City is scheduled to kick off in mid-November and run through until early February.

The Journal reported the film has a working title of "Greenbriar" and they say it "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".

As of now, it's unclear if the film which is temporary titled Greenbrier, will be a prequel or a follow-up to the series finale which aired in 2013.

Seeing how Walter White met with a fatal end in the final episode of the show, it's unlikely that a film would dare to continue the his story, with Bryan Cranston's character likely showing up in flashbacks at best.

Set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Cranston played Walter White, who is transformed from a meek high school science teacher into a ruthless player in the local methamphetamine drug trade. Such is the case with Better Call Saul, a spin-off prequel that predates the events of Breaking Bad by six years. Series creator Vince Gilligan has announced that he's taking the Breaking Bad franchise to the silver screen.

Rumor has it that the film is now operating under the unconfirmed (read: possibly fake) working title of Greenbrier.
