It looks like we’re getting a Breaking Bad movie, according to The Albuquerque Journal. The site spoke to a source close to the project, and it was later confirmed by Variety. There are few details right now, but the confirmation story says that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is indeed working on a two-hour movie, though it is unclear if this will be for theaters or if it will be a TV movie.
The Albuquerque Journal states that the logline for the film, being called Greenbrier, is as follows: “Greenbrier tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”
“We are happy to welcome ‘Greenbrier’ and Sony Studios to New Mexico,” said New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “For years, we’ve built up the film industry in New Mexico and strengthened our film incentives; now, we’re seeing success after success for the film industry in our state.”
Production for the film is set for mid-November through February in Duke City, according to the site, and it will employ a number of New Mexico crew, actors and background talent. There is no word yet on whether or not this will be a prequel or if it will take place after the series.
Breaking Bad starred Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul and ran from 2008-2013. It told the story of Walter White (Cranston), a high school chemistry teacher with cancer who sells meth to support his family. It spawned the spinoff Better Call Saul.
