"Breaking Bad" Movie Is Reportedly Filming This Month

A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the United States this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports.

"Greenbrier", a film focusing on a man who escaped after being kidnapped and his subsequent path to freedom, will begin production later this month and continue into February, the Albuquerque Journal reported Tuesday.

A source close to the creator made the claims but Gilligan and producer of the show, Sony Pictures Television hasn't confirmed anything yet.

No further information was given for the production, and it is now unclear if it will be a prequel or will even include the characters or same actors from the television show.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is at the helm of the project, which could yet be either for TV or a theater release.

But there are still a lot of questions surrounding the Breaking Bad movie, including whether or not Walter White actor Bryan Cranston would be involved. And we don't know if original stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris and others will return to reprise their roles. A prequel series on AMC, "Better Call Saul", starring Bob Odenkirk, wrapped its fourth season in October.

"/Film has learned that the newly announced Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying finale". With his former student Jesse Pinkman played by Paul, White turns his life around by making and selling drugs. It would join prequel series Better Call Saul.

Breaking Bad filmed in New Mexico for six years, and Better Call Saul had filmed there as well.

AMC's Breaking Bad ended its critically acclaimed five-season run with a finale that brought in a series record 10.3 million viewers.
