Breaking Bad movie reportedly in the works

Yeah, bitch! Breaking Bad may be heading to the silver screen.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, there’s a hush-hush film heading into production in New Mexico later this month under the working title, Greenbrier, which their sources have confirmed as being related to AMC’s iconic series.

As they report, “a source close to the project said it’s about the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom,” which should have fans doing their best Walter White impersonation as they scream in unison: “Jesse!”

Now, before everyone celebrates with a bag of baby blue, know that the New Mexico Film Office would neither confirm nor deny the report. However, they did confirm that Sony is involved, the same company who owns the series’ IP and recently signed creator Vince Gilligan to a three-year deal.

What’s more, actor Aaron Paul, who played surviving drug dealer Jesse Pinkman, has been incredibly vocal about returning to the character, a sentiment that has also been echoed by Gilligan. In other words, this “quest for freedom” could easily belong to our favorite beanie-wearing peddler.

To add more weight to the report, the news comes only two days after AMC confirmed they’re now in the business of making feature films, as they plan on rolling out not one, not two, but three goddamn movies based on The Walking Dead. So, this would fit that model, too.

Of course, if all this is true, they’ll have to find a way to wrench Paul away from Westworld.
