A Breaking Bad film is coming

However, rumours of the upcoming production have been floating around for a while, The Alburquerque Journal reported the movie was set to start filming in the city - which has become a huge draw for tourists thanks to the success of the show - in mid-November through to early February 2019.

Breaking Bad, the hit TV series that followed the transformation of Walter White - a human doormat/chemistry teacher who discovers he has terminal cancer - into the criminal mastermind behind an extensive and ambitious drugs operation, is coming back as a film.

That's still speculation though, and stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have given nothing away yet.

It is through the New Mexico Film Office that word of the secret project made it to the Albuquerque Journal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, show creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour movie that their sources say "will be set in the existing Breaking Bad franchise".

Breaking Bad filmed in New Mexico for six years, and Better Call Saul had filmed there as well.

USA entertainment industry website Deadline reports that it is unclear if cast members from the original series, which was toplined by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, will return for what is envisioned as a standalone Breaking Bad story. Likewise, it's unknown whether it'll be a prequel a la AMC's Better Call Saul or will take place after the events of Breaking Bad's epic 2013 finale.

From acclaimed writer, producer, director Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad was produced by Sony Pictures Television with Mark Johnson (Gran Via) and Michelle MacLaren serving as executive producers.

The New Mexico film industry and Sony Pictures Television have worked together on both "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul".
