Vince Gilligan penning Breaking Bad movie but will Walter White return?

Popular television drama Breaking Bad is coming back, this time around as a movie.

According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is now in the process of writing a two-hour movie that, per Complex, will be a sequel continuing the tale of Jesse Pinkman's story following the show's final episode. A prequel series, Better Call Saul, was quickly greenlighted before the initial series concluded, and it was recently renewed for a fifth season set to air in 2019.

It wasn't immediately clear if the film would be televised on AMC, where the series was first shown, or in movie theaters.

The series' creator Vince Gilligan is penning the script for the extremely under-wraps project, The Hollywood Reporter wrote Tuesday, citing unnamed sources.

The Breaking Bad movie will reportedly begin shooting later this month in New Mexico, so if that's the case, you can expect an official announcement to come down soon. While no cast members from the AMC series have been confirmed to return, series creator Vince Gilligan is spearheading the project after signing a three-year deal renewal with Sony Pictures Television this past July. You'll no doubt recall that while Jesse escaped, speeding away and laughing maniacally, Breaking Bad main character Walter White (Bryan Cranston) died from a gunshot wound. 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. Slashfilm reports the film, entitled Greenbriar, will follow the story of Heisenberg's tortured lackey Jesse Pinkman. Even better. And don't even get us started on Aaron Paul dressing his baby daughter up as Heisenberg, please.

While there's no official announcement, "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston confirmed the reports during a call-in chat with "The Dan Patrick Show" on Wednesday. Bob Odenkirk says "I don't think so", but maybe Walter White knows something Saul Goodman doesn't? So it might not be too long until we get to see it.
