The world of Breaking Bad is getting a movie-length treatment.
Sources told THR that Gilligan is penning the script, producing, and potentially directing.
Per the New Mexico Film Office, "Greenbriar" is going into production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the same place that hit crime drama "Breaking Bad" was set and filmed. What we do know, however, is that the project is codenamed Greenbrier, it will "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom", and, yes, it's filming in New Mexico. The movie "will be set in the existing Breaking Bad franchise", according to sources.
Seeing how Walter White met with a fatal end in the final episode of the show, it's unlikely that a film would dare to continue the his story, with Bryan Cranston's character likely showing up in flashbacks at best. At the time, we didn't know who'd star in the film, whether it was meant to be a feature or a TV movie, or what it was about beyond "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".
If the news is indeed to be trusted, it leads us to wonder what sort of form a Breaking Bad movie would take. After rumors of the movie's existence dropped yesterday, we confirmed today that the film will focus on Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) following the conclusion of the series. "But I'm excited about it, because it's Breaking Bad", he said.

A government statement following Wells' visit said US-Pakistan bilateral agenda including the upcoming Geneva Conference and the Afghan peace process were discussed.
Currently, it still hasn't been confirmed if the film will release in theatres or online streaming giants, however, it would mark Gilligan's first project with Sony TV in a three-year deal he signed with them in July.
Work on a feature-length "Breaking Bad" movie is underway, according to The Hollywood Reporter and the New Mexico Film Office.
"I think it's just a matter of time before we get a Sopranos movie - without Tony, of course - or a Mad Men movie". So what does this mean for Bryan Cranston?
"If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure", Cranston said.
It seems as though AMC wants to create giant spinoffs of their most famous projects, and I am not buying it so far.
