Breaking Bad Is Getting a Feature Film

It's also not yet known if Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston or Aaron Paul will participate in any way.

Just days after news of a The Walking Dead cashing in on its success by turning spinning the show (the main character is nearly dead) into a brand new movie series, reports have now surfaced that Breaking Bad's creator Vince Gilligan is doing the same thing. It adds that production is starting in New Mexico this month and that the movie is shooting under the project name Greenbrier.

Details on the Breaking Bad movie, which has been floating around the industry with a possible fake/working title of Greenbrier, are slim.

If true, "Greenbriar" joins a clutch of TV shows making the transition to a feature-length film format.

And we also don't know if it's a continuation of the original series, or a prequel, or a spinoff, but the story will reportedly be set in the existing Breaking Bad franchise. The series ended with Walt freeing Jesse and Jesse driving off into an unknown future, finally free to make his own choices. Walt had his time in the sun, and wisely hasn't been the centerpiece of Better Call Saul's later seasons.

Following the launch, curious fans began wondering how the non-player characters, or NPC for short, spend their time in the world. If you've already progressed well beyond that with your gang members missing, then it's bad news.

This is not a drill - Breaking Bad is going to be turned into a film.

The show detailed the fate of Walter H. White (Bryan Cranston) a mild-mannered chemistry teacher who morphs into a fearsome drug kingpin in an effort to build a fortune for his family.

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

The original series ran for five seasons and quickly became a TV phenomenon, spawning the successful prequel series, Better Call Saul, both of which have aired on AMC.

Sources told THR that Gilligan is penning the script, producing, and potentially directing.
