A “Breaking Bad” movie is set to begin production this month in the AMC show’s original location, according to reports.
Details are scant. Other than a plot that is said to “follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom,” THR noted that it was unclear whether the two-hour work was intended for TV or the cinema, whether it was a sequel or prequel (such as AMC’s “Better Call Saul”), or whether the original stars, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, would be involved.
Cranston’s meth-making Walter White appear to have died in the Emmy-winning show’s 2013 finale, but the actor joked recently that things may not be as they seemed.
The New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a movie called “Greenbrier,” said to be the title, will begin production in Albuquerque mid-November through early February, the Albuquerque Journal reported. A source confirmed to the paper that “Greenbrier” is the “Breaking Bad” project.
“Breaking Bad” originally ran on AMC from 2008 to 2013, collecting 16 Emmys while becoming a cultural phenomenon.
