Breaking Bad film coming, but will Walter White be in it?

The final episode of "Breaking Bad" aired in 2013 after five seasons of following the exploits of Walter White, a fictional high school chemistry professor who utilizes his science skills to make crystal meth.

A Breaking Bad movie is reportedly being added to the hit franchise. I loved Breaking Bad, and I love its prequel series Better Call Saul.

But there are still a lot of questions surrounding the Breaking Bad movie, including whether or not Walter White actor Bryan Cranston would be involved.


He signed a three-year agreement with Sony Pictures Television in July, which raises the possibility that the "Breaking Bad" project may be destined for TV.

The Albuquerque Journal have also reported that shooting will begin in the New Mexico city - where the original show was set and filmed - later this month, and is set to continue through to early February. It appears we'll get to find out as part of this Breaking Bad movie, but it'll be interesting to see exactly what this is.

In an interview on Thursday, Cranston acknowledged speaking to Gilligan about the movie but said he hadn't yet received or read the script.


The Emmy Award-winning series was set and filmed in Albuquerque for six years. Bob Odenkirk says "I don't think so", but maybe Walter White knows something Saul Goodman doesn't? Even better. And don't even get us started on Aaron Paul dressing his baby daughter up as Heisenberg, please. We don't know if it's a continuation of the original series, or a prequel, or a spinoff.

The project has the working title of Greenbrier (if you recognize that name, it's because it's a very common plant) and has been confirmed by the New Mexico Film Office. The last we see of Jesse is him driving away into the darkness after escaping the clutches of his neo-Nazi captors. Until then, Breaking Bad fans may want to watch this space for more. Walt had his time in the sun, and wisely hasn't been the centerpiece of Better Call Saul's later seasons.
