A Breaking Bad film was first reported to be in production past year before creator Vince Gilligan voiced uncertainty on whether the project would end up as feature or a miniseries.

According to World of Reel, the movie (code-named Greenbrier) would feature Breaking Bad veterans Cranston (Walter White), Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Krysten Ritter (Jane Margolis), Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut), Jesse Plemons (Todd Alquist), Charles Baker (Skinny Pete), Matt Jones (Badger), Robert Forster (Ed, aka The Disappearer), Tess Harper (Mrs. Pinkman) and Kevin Rankin (Kenny).

On top of dropping big secrets about the Breaking Badmovie, Odenkirk talked a bit about the upcoming fifth season of Better Call Saul, indicating that in this season we're finally going to see Jimmy McGill turn into his much-more-shifty, definitely-big-criminal self, Saul Goodman.

In case you hadn't heard - "Breaking Bad" is cooking up a comeback. They did it. You know what I mean?

"I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot", he said.

But, we know it's happening.

All the same, Odenkirk himself will again don the guise of Goodman when Better Call Saul returns to AMC for an anticipated Season 5.

The Netflix page for "El Camino", which disappeared off the streaming service earlier today.

The AMC series stars Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who begins cooking meth to pay for his cancer treatment. Reddit was the first to discover Netflix's "accidental" leak of the Breaking Bad movie title and story synopsis. Aaron Paul went dark on social media at the same time and then found time to start a mezcal company up with Bryan Cranston.

"It's a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn't realize that I wanted", Paul told the New York Times in the article linked above.
