'Breaking Bad' Movie From Creator Vince Gilligan in the Works
"The escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" - sounds like the movie is going to be 2 hours of Jesse Pinkman trying to dodge federal agents and cartel gangsters. Maybe they'll bring back Walter White as a ghostly apparition giving him shitty advice.
He'll wander into a Cinnabon in Omaha, Nebraska...
they have done great with BB and BCS, so I have no problem with a potential movie.
I just hope Bryan Cranston is in it.
There goes my hope that this would be a spin-off about one of my fave minor characters, Wendy.
The Breaking Bad franchise is pretty decent. They dragged it out a bit but overall it was entertaining. Better Call Saul has been (for me) as good or better and hopefully the film will follow suit.
I have a problem with this, even if it turns out everyone behind the series will be involved in the film. I think film-to-TV-series is a natural progression, but I struggle to see how it can work the other way around.
Admittedly there have been some successful series-to-film progressions (Mission Impossible being a prime example) but in most cases such a long time had elapsed the film was effectively a reboot and the original series could be safely ignored.
Breaking Bad is far too recent and far too good to reboot, and the story was rounded up and concluded with no loose ends so I wonder what the storyline will be about. Kill it with fire IMO.
