When news was first released about a possible ‘Breaking Bad‘ movie, many people were wondering if it’d be a prequel or a sequel. It seemed more likely that it would be a sequel, considering they already have an amazing prequel in Better Call Saul.
According to a new report coming out, this film will indeed be a sequel, and it’ll star Aaron Paul as the lovable Jesse Pinkman once again. It’ll follow his life after the events of Breaking Bad, and it’ll reportedly be released on Netflix before moving to AMC.
“As THR previously reported, the Breaking Bad movie will be written by original series creator Vince Gilligan, who will exec produce the project alongside franchise collaborators Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. Gilligan, sources say, will direct the film, which will follow the escape of a kidnapped man (Paul’s Jesse) and his quest for freedom.”
Will this movie feature Walter White at all? Perhaps a flashback scene or two? Well, we don’t know for sure, but we do know Bryan Cranston would be down.
Cranston spoke on The Dan Patrick Show recently, and had this to say…
“It’s a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale]. This idea, from what I’m told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey.
I don’t know if there’s an appearance — flashbacks, flash forwards — but I’m excited about it because it’s Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can’t wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit.”
We can’t wait either. We’ll keep you posted as more information is released.
