Breaking Bad’s creator, Vince Gilligan, is Planning a Movie Tied to the Series: Report

Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad, is working on a new film based on the critically acclaimed series. According to Variety, the writer-director is working on a two-hour feature film. However, it is unclear whether it will be released in theatres or television. According to The Albuquerque Journal, the project will be titled “Greenbrier,” citing the New Mexico Film Office. The film office would not confirm or deny the film’s ties to Breaking Bad. But a “source close to the project” confirmed that to The Albuquerque Journal. The publication also teased a plot synopsis for the film, which is said to “follow the escape of a kidnapped man & his quest for freedom.” Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman will be the “kidnapped man,” with the story picking up after the show’s tumultuous finale episode.

He received three Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

In an interview with The Dan Patrick Show, Bryan Cranston, who played the series’ classic protagonist, Walter White, accepted that there “appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad.” However, he added that he hasn’t read or received the script. “It’s debatable whether or not we’ll even see Walter White in this movie,” he said, adding that he would participate in the project if necessary. “If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, I’d do it,” he said.

“From what I’ve heard, this idea permeates a couple of the characters who did not complete their journey.”

In July, Gilligan created the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul. He agreed to a three-year contract with Sony Pictures Television. If confirmed, “Greenbrier” would be his first project. Currently, no official details are available, such as casting or potential release dates.

A representative for Gilligan did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

For years, we’ve been building up the film industry in New Mexico and strengthening our film incentives; now, we’re seeing success after progress for the film industry in our state,” he continued. Over six years, Gilligan set and filmed Breaking Bad in Albuquerque. The series finale of the Bryan Cranston-starring drama.
