Breaking Bad movie to focus on Jesse Pinkman's fate in 'sequel'

After months of speculation, several outlets have confirmed the much-hyped Breaking Bad movie is heading to Netflix. A 2014 analysis pegged Breaking Bad as the most binge-watched show of all time, and in 2016, Netflix named the series among those binged the most quickly after analyzing over 100 TV series across its service in more than 190 countries.

Interestingly, the movie will be available for streaming on Netflix before it ever airs on AMC, the network that originally aired the show.

The report also claims that the script is being shot as a feature-length movie, although this is yet to be confirmed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film - with the working title Greenbrier - will centre around Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) immediately following his escape from the white supremacists' compound. Gilligan acknowledged the streamer's contribution in his acceptance speech for the series' first best drama series Emmy win in 2013. In the past, he has directed a number of episodes of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The X-Files, so we expect big things from this.

"I think Netflix kept us on the air", he said at the time. "Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two", he said. Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, both of whom have worked with Gilligan on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, are on board as producers.

"It's a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale]", Cranston said. Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and followed protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl.
