Breaking Bad Film to be a Sequel to the Series
The upcoming Breaking Bad movie is reportedly going to be a sequel. The film will focus on the character of Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul. Reports are also saying that Netflix will be the first to air the film, with AMC following.
The film will be written by series creator Vince Gilligan, who will also executive produce alongside Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. He is also said to be directing the project.
Breaking Bad was a huge hit for AMC, becoming an iconic series. It ran for 5 seasons and starred Bryan Cranston as Walter White alongside Paul's character Jesse.
Cranston has spoken about the film project on The Dan Patrick Show, saying, "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." He went on to say, "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."
This will be the first project Gilligan does for Netflix/Sony TV through their three-year overall deal, which he signed in July.
