Stop What You're Doing: There's a Breaking Bad Movie in the Works

Hit US television series Breaking Bad may have achieved that rare feat - a flawless ending - but it doesn't mean that creator Vince Gilligan isn't planning to write an extra chapter in the drugs drama.

At this time, it's unclear whether this two-hour movie will air on TV or be released theatrically, as details are scare, but either way, a Breaking Bad revival is coming our way, according to The Hollywood Reporter!

Earlier today, friend-of-the-site James Shapiro shared with me a post from The Albuquerque Journal, one claiming that a Breaking Bad movie would soon be going into production in New Mexico. As fans will know, both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are set and filmed in New Mexico.

The Journal reported the film has a working title of "Greenbriar" and they say it "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". It is also unknown if either of Breaking Bad's main stars-Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul-are set to return. The feature project is expected to employ approximately 300 New Mexico crew members, as well as 16 actors and approximately 450 background talent from the state.

Instead, the royals give silly gifts - one year, Middleton reportedly even gave Harry a plastic Grow Your Own Girlfriend kit. The royal family reportedly exchanges gifts on Christmas Eve, though extravagant presents aren't in the cards here.

Filming will be carried out in Alburquerque from mid November through to February next year. It would join prequel series 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.

Collider reports that Gilligan has written the script and is gearing up to direct starting this month in the traditional Albuquerque haunts. In the latter role, he'll be working alongside Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, executive producers on Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul.
