Series creator Vince Gilligan is said to be overseeing the project, but that's about all that's being reported right now.

Work is slated to begin in a few weeks in Albuquerque, New Mexico on a film tentatively titled Greenbrier, the New Mexico Film Office confirmed to the Albuquerque Journal, and run through February.

After being rumoured for awhile now, it has been been confirmed that a breaking Bad Movie will start filming this month.


The Hollywood Reporter claims the the show's writer is "working on a two-hour movie" based on the same high school teacher-turned-meth baron concept that made Breaking Bad an worldwide phenomenon.

Years after ending its fifth and final season in 2013, show creator Vince Gilligan confirmed to Variety on Tuesday, November6 (Wednesday, November 7 in the Philippines) that he is now working on a film connected to the widely-loved, famed series as its scriptwriter, executive producer, and possible director.

Involvement from stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul is also up in the air, though for one of their characters a story line set in the future might bring certain difficulties.


Breaking Bad has already spawned the spin-off series Better Call Saul. Likewise, it's unknown whether it'll be a prequel a la AMC's Better Call Saul or will take place after the events of Breaking Bad's epic 2013 finale.

We do know that Gilligan will pen the script and executive-produce the film, and possibly direct it as well.

The New Mexico film industry and Sony Pictures Television have worked together on both "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul".


Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and followed protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl.
