The 'Breaking Bad' movie has finished filming
It has been nearly six years since the final episode of ABC's Breaking Bad aired. The last time we saw our favorite crystal meth cooks, Jesse had been freed from the chains of the Aryan Brotherhood thanks to Mr. White and his M60 machine gun, and Walt lay dying on the floor of a meth lab, as cops surrounded his lifeless body.
The show was not only a critical success but also a hit with audiences around the world. I can remember the first time I watch it and I was totally addicted. I couldn't stop trying to get my friends to watch it and after finishing an episode I couldn't wait for my next hit. It's kinda ironic how a TV show about crystal meth can be just as addictive.
And like many fans, I was overjoyed when The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, had signed a deal with Sony Pictures Television to create a two-hour spin-off movie. In an article from earlier this year, The Hollywood Reporter said that the movie is expected to be a sequel that would revolve around Aaron Paul, who will be reprising his Emmy-winning role as Jesse Pinkman.
Hank has also been keeping busy, brewing his own Schraderbräu:
Specific details have been kept incredibly quiet regarding the movie - with rumors of a possible fake/working title of 'Greenbrier' being floated around - but it's safe to say both the show's lead stars Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have enjoyed toying with fans with some very cryptic tweets:
And this was followed by:
During his appearce on The Dan Patrick Show, Bryan Cranston did reference a Breaking Bad movie, and said he would "absolutely" appear in the movie if Gilligan asked him:
"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."
However, now Bob Odenkirk - who played Saul Goodman in the show and in the ongoing spin-off series Better Call Saul - that filming is now complete. Speaking to Movie Web about season five of Better Call Saul, the conversation inevitably turned the confidential movie - and Odenkirk was careful not to give too much away. He said:
"I don't know what people know and don't know. I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret."
So there you have it: they did it! The movie has been shot, and now we just have to wait for our next hit.
