Vince Gilligan Is Making a Breaking Bad Movie

This is envisioned as a standalone installment in the Breaking Bad franchise that lives in the Breaking Bad universe.

Years after ending its fifth and final season in 2013, show creator Vince Gilligan confirmed to Variety on Tuesday, November6 (Wednesday, November 7 in the Philippines) that he is now working on a film connected to the widely-loved, famed series as its scriptwriter, executive producer, and possible director.

Gilligan is set to write, executive produce and could even direct the feature based on the show, which will focus on the story of a kidnapped man escaping to freedom. We don't know if the movie will be another prequel to the epic events of Walter White's descent into a life of crime, or if it will cover new ground in the future.

If you need to catch up on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul (or re-watch them for the 10th time), all of the episodes are streaming on Stan.

Series creator Vince Gilligan is driving the project, which Variety say will have "ties to the beloved series".

Series creator Vince Gilligan has announced that he's taking the Breaking Bad franchise to the silver screen. Given the format, a prequel wouldn't make a lot of sense (particularly when SPT could score another extended win like Better Call Saul with another spin-off) so it could be that we're looking at the possibility of the return of Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman. The whole thing's pretty damn mysterious (serious question: did they intend to keep this a secret?) and we're fascinated to see where things go from here. Production in the Duke City is scheduled to begin mid-November through early February, according to the Journal.

"It wouldn't feel as satisfying if it was just a cameo or an Alfred Hitchcock walkthrough".
