Slash Film has confirmed that the newly announced Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse (played by Aaron Paul)as he runs from that horrifying finale.
Recall that the news of the sequel surfaced last night. According to multiple reports, the series creator Vince Gilligan was writing and executive producing a Breaking Bad movie, although it is unknown if he will also direct. It was also suggested that this will be a television movie, as it is being made through Gilligan’s deal with Sony TV, who produced the original show (which aired on AMC).
Now, Slash Film confirms that the movie will follow Jesse’s escape from Albuquerque following the bloody events of the series finale. As expected, Aaron Paul is set to reprise the role, which won him three Emmy awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
