Details about the much-anticipated follow-up film to wildly popular TV series Breaking Bad are finally emerging, including where is will air and who is will star.
According to multiple reports from BuzzFeed and Insider, the series’ original creator Vince Gilligan will be driving the film, with actor Aaron Paul reprising his role as Pinkman!
The original series had its first premiered in 2008 on AMC and was eventually picked up by Netflix, making the show available on both platforms.
However, it’s now believed the film will premiere on Netflix exclusively, before then airing on AMC.
Representatives from both have yet to confirm the news, however, in 2013, Gilligan thanked Netlix during his Emmys acceptance speech, saying:
“I think Netflix kept us on the air… Not only are we standing up here, I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond Season 2… It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”
Bryan Cranston confirmed a film was in the works back in November, on The Dan Patrick Show, revealing:
"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].
"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey."
As for if he will be included in the film somehow, Cranston said:
"I don't know if there's an appearance — flashbacks, flash forwards — but I'm excited about it because it's Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can't wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit."
