The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that a new chapter in Breaking Bad is in the works.
According to the network, the creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour movie, although it is unclear if the production is for TV or released theatrically.
“Gilligan, sources say, will pen the script, exec produce and possibly direct. Breaking Bad and prequel series Better Call Saul exec producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also said to be attached to the movie project, which is said to follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. Production is expected to begin this month in New Mexico. The New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a project with the title of Greenbrier is slated to film in in the region,” the report said.
Recall that Breaking Bad became a critical breakout for AMC and ran for five seasons. AMC and producers Sony TV quickly greenlit prequel series Better Call Saul as Gilligan’s follow-up series. Saul, featuring Bob Odenkirk’s small-time lawyer, has been renewed for a fifth season at AMC set to air in 2019.
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
