New details about the Breaking Bad movie seem to be leaking more often lately, and fans are very eager for it.
Late last year rumors of the film emerged, with reports eventually confirming that it was in fact happening.
Specifics of the film have been in short supply, but there are some things that have been confirmed.
Scroll down to read everything we know about the Breaking Bad movie so far, and let us know in the comments if you are excited for it!
Title & Plot
The Breaking Bad film is currently untitled, but has been in production under the working title Greenbrier.
It will reportedly be a sequel to the show, and will "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom."
The "kidnapped man" is said to be Jesse Pinkman, who was one of the main characters in the series.prevnext
Aaron Paul is Back
Seeing as how Jesse Pinkman is supposedly the star, this means that actor Aaron Paul — who portrayed Jesse — will be returning to reprise his role.
In the final episode of the series, Jesse was seen driving away from a compound for the Aryan Brotherhood — who had kidnapped him — and laughing in maniacal joy as he escaped.
Presumably, this is where the new film will pick up.prevnext
That is something that even Bryan Cranson — who played White in the show — has wondered as well.
"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but I honestly have not even read the script... I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script," Cranston stated in a 2018 interview. "So there's question of whether or not we will even see Walter White in this movie."prevnext
Netflix & AMC
The series has also been streaming on Netflix for some time, and is still one of the service's most popular shows to this day.
According to a new report, the Breaking Bad film will debut on Netflix. Sometime afterwards, AMC will air the film as well.prevnext
Other than Paul's Jesse Pinkman, there is no word at this time on which other cast members may make appearances in the Breaking Bad film.
However, there are a number of characters from the show who could return, such as Brandon "Badger" Mayhew (played by Matt L. Jones) and Skinny Pete (played by Charles Baker).
Both Characters were friends of Jesse, and could easily fit into the sequel film.prevnext

"For years, we've built up the film industry in New Mexico and strengthened our film incentives, now we're seeing success after success for the film industry in our state," Maniatis added.prevnext
Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is back, and is reportedly responsible for writing and directing the new film.
Interestingly, during a panel at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con, Gilligan and the cast were asked about the possibility of a Breaking Bad film happening at some point.
"Anything's possible," Gilligan replied. "We live in a world fraught with possibilities — good and bad."prevnext
