'Breaking Bad' movie in the works by Vince Gilligan

The creator of the iconic show, Vince Gilligan, is now working on a two hour feature-length movie "set in the existing Breakinf Bad franchise", reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Bryan Cranston as Walter White, left, and Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman in a scene from "Breaking Bad".

The Journal also reports the title as "Greenbriar", though whether that's the final title is in the air as well.

However, it is unclear if Bryan Cranston's character White will be making an appearance in the movie.

Last night, in the midst of a massive USA election, some pretty huge entertainment news also dropped with the leak that a Breaking Bad movie is not only in the works, it starts filming this month.

Production on the project, which is said to be operating under the codename "Greenbrier", is expected to get underway in New Mexico sometime in November.

Trump fires US Attorney General Jeff Sessions
I was a federal prosecutor for five years and was proud to serve in the Department of Justice, and I would've brought that case. He would not have nominated him, he said, had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

"Greenbrier", a film focusing on a man who escaped after being kidnapped and his subsequent path to freedom, will begin production later this month and continue into February, the Albuquerque Journal reported Tuesday.

Others have faith in the show's creator regardless, with one explaining: "It's Vince Gilligan, he wouldn't ruin it. Better Call Saul has people complaining that it's slow, but there are so many things that's got me hooked on it". A prequel series on AMC, "Better Call Saul", starring Bob Odenkirk, wrapped its fourth season in October.

He signed a three-year agreement with Sony Pictures Television in July, which raises the possibility that the "Breaking Bad" project may be destined for TV.

A movie, either theatrical or for TV, has always been considered a possibility. Gilligan's project will help the television network keep its reputation as one of the most respected showrunners in the industry. It follows a high school chemistry teacher Walter White, essayed by Cranston, who finds extreme measures to earn a living after he realises that his salary will not be enough to support his family.

The Los Angeles native continued: 'I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script. But I'm excited about it because it's Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life. Would this be another prequel in the vein of the phenomenal AMC series Better Call Saul?
