Guess Who’s Come A-Knocking!
The murderous, drug-fuelled and unholy binge experience that was Breaking Bad remains one of the must influential and standout shows in modern memory. Walter White’s descent into the empire business that comes from being a meth kingpin was all too engrossing, in spite of the fact we were essentially watching a good if weak man fall into the role of a would-be tyrant. With so many quotable lines, one of the highest rated episodes in the history of television, as well as a successful spin-off, you’d think Heisenberg would be done and dusted by this point. Apparently not, since the original creator has revealed his plans for a movie set in the Bad-verse!
According to an article on Empire –
Given that Vince Gilligan has been busy with Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul, fans of the original show probably weren’t expecting him to be cooking up a movie based on the idea. But, sneaky man that he is, that’s exactly what Gilligan has been doing.
Collider reports that Gilligan has written the script and is gearing up to direct starting this month in the traditional Albuquerque haunts. Apparently the film bears the code name Greenbrier, but beyond that, no details have been released.
Indeed, there is a strict veil of secrecy over the movie, which has yet to confirm any casting or setting, other than it’ll take place in the Breaking Bad universe. Prequel? Sequel? Side-quel? That’s still to be announced.
The Albuquerque Journal, which received early word, has heard the story will concern the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom, even if that could be a fake synopsis to distract attention.
Do you think there’s a chance that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul could once again return to their now iconic roles? Given how things ended for Walter and Jesse, that might be a bit of a stretch. Still, we’ll take any excuse to once again jump into this savage world. At the very least we can hope for Mike to show up.
