New chapter in Breaking Bad is in the works.
Sources say Hollywood Reporter that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan works on a two-part film, although it remains unclear whether it will be published for theater or television.
Representatives of Gilligan and Breaking Bad Producers of Sony Pictures Television did not respond immediately THR's comment requests.
Details of a project that floated across the industry with a possible fake / working title Greenbrier are thin. It is unclear whether the movie will be another prequel like AMC Better call Saula – or tracking a species. It is also unclear whether any of the original stars, such as Bryan Cranston or Aron Paul, is involved in a new project that will, from stressful sources, put the existing Breaking Bad franchise.
Gilligan, the sources say, will write a letter, executive production, and maybe directly. Breaking Bad and prequel series Better call Saula Executive Producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also attached to a film project, which is said to follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his search for freedom. Production is expected earlier this month in New Mexico. The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that the project called Greenbrier should shoot in the region.
Breaking Bad became a critical break for AMC and ran for five seasons. AMC and Sony TV producers quickly illuminated the prequel Better Call Saul as Gilligan's tracking series. Saul, with Bob Odenkirkov's little-time attorney, was rebuilt for the fifth season, which began in 2019.
Breaking Bad the film would mark the first Gilligan project to come from a new three-year overall job that he signed with Sony TV in July. Sources argue that the pact is worth less than $ 50 million, as Gilligan is not in the same volume of space as producers like Shonde Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, who have signed Netflix's nine numbers.
The Breaking Bad movie (any kind) would be a boon to Sony TV, which as an independent studio fights against the exalted battles at a time when ownership has become more and more important.
Gilligan's new job has kept one of the most prominent television headlines in the studio business that continues to focus on cable and current affairs after a severe season in which he landed on a new series on five broadcasting networks.
