'Breaking Bad' two-hour movie reportedly in the works

A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the United States this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports. Likewise, it's unknown if Gilligan will tap Breaking Bad actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul to reprise their respective roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman for the film.

We'll be keeping our eyes peeled on the rumour mill and will keeo you updated.

The series which ran for five seasons and won multiple Emmy Awards, ended in 2013.

Backing up these claims is the fact that show creator Vince Gilligan just signed a three-year overall deal with Sony.

Gilligan is set to write, executive produce and could even direct the feature based on the show, which will focus on the story of a kidnapped man escaping to freedom.

Gilligan created and produced both "Breaking Bad" and its subsequent prequel spin-off series "Better Call Saul" for Sony's TV arm.

Details on the proposed project are now scarce, and it's not yet clear whether the film is being planned for a theatrical or television debut. But I honestly have not even read the script ... The movie would catch up with Jesse Pinkman and Jimmy "Saul Goodman" McGill after the events of the Breaking Bad finale, when Jimmy is living under the assumed name Gene and managing a Cinnabon in Omaha, as we see in flash-forwards on Better Call Saul.

Someone better call Saul, because we need to know the fine print of this exciting news.

The plot - a kidnapped man on a quest for freedom - sounds an very bad lot like Jesse (Aaron Paul) in the final season, when he was kidnapped by Neo Nazis.

Work on a feature-length "Breaking Bad" movie is underway, according to The Hollywood Reporter and the New Mexico Film Office.

The Albuquerque Journal have also reported that shooting will begin in the New Mexico city - where the original show was set and filmed - later this month, and is set to continue through to early February. That remains to be seen; Walt did not survive the finale, although the character could always return in a flashback or dream sequence.

"Selfishly, I didn't want to be polarising".
