According to the New Mexico Film Office (via Albuquerque Journal), a Sony project carrying that title is gearing up to film later this month in New Mexico, the state in which Breaking Bad shot a majority of its episodes. The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a project with that title is due to start shooting in mid-November.
This will be the first movie for Gilligan, who also served as an executive producer on The X-Files.
It's now unclear if the project will be released to theatres or television.
It is also unclear if the movie's plot will pick up right where the series ended up in 2013 or whether the story will be a prequel similar to AMC's recent "Better Call Saul" series. Instead, it seems more likely that Aaron Paul would be the lead in any feature-length outing, with the series finale seeming to leave Jesse Pinkman's future wide open. It follows a high school chemistry teacher Walter White, essayed by Cranston, who finds extreme measures to earn a living after he realises that his salary will not be enough to support his family.
Last night, in the midst of a massive USA election, some pretty huge entertainment news also dropped with the leak that a Breaking Bad movie is not only in the works, it starts filming this month. The cast of Breaking Bad reunited at this summer's San Diego Comic-Con to celebrate the show's tenth anniversary. Cranston's character, Walter White, died at the end of that show. Now, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has confirmed the existence of the Breaking Bad movie as well, b is Cranston appearing in the film in some way, shape or form?
