It wasn't immediately clear if the film would be televised on AMC, where the series was first shown, or in movie theaters. Set to return are producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein who have worked with Gilligan both on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the United States this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports.
The series which ran for five seasons and won multiple Emmy Awards, ended in 2013.
The finale of Breaking Bad saw a newly-perforated Walter White bleeding out on the floor of a meth lab, but Cranston intimated that he'd be dead keen to revisit Heisenberg through flashbacks or some kind of creative flash-forward. According to the Albuquerque Journal (confirmed by Variety), a Breaking Bad movie is gearing up for production in New Mexico under the working title "Greenbrier", and will begin production mid-November through early February.
For now, though, Cranston is saying that he hasn't read the script and hasn't been officially asked to appear, but he would. "I would absolutely do it [play Walter again] - it's Vince Gilligan and he's a genius". "But I'm excited about it, because it's Breaking Bad", he said. Let us know your thoughts down below!
"Breaking Bad" fans will no longer have to tread lightly - a film sequel to the iconic television show is reportedly in the works.
Though the "Why Him?' star isn't involved as of yet, Gilligan did make him aware of the film, which has the tentative title, Greenbrier", and will follow "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".
Fans of AMC's hit show Breaking Bad were sent into a frenzy after the announcement that the series would be getting the movie treatment, with creator Vince Gilligan now working on a film.
