Vince Gilligan has been doing some fantastic work with Better Call Saul, but it’s been announced that he’ll be working on a Breaking Bad movie which follows the story of Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after his emancipation from the Neo-Nazis. What’s interesting is, we have some new information on where we can watch the finished film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has acquired the rights to run the Breaking Bad film first, but AMC will also be allowed to screen as well. Seeing that Breaking Bad flourished on the small screen, I didn’t think the transition to a full-blown theatrical release would have been ideal. With a Netflix release though, I think it would be a safer gamble for the studio.
With Better Call Saul being a prequel, we don’t really know much about what happens after the finale of Breaking Bad. We know that Saul ends up hiding as a Cinnabon manager in Omaha, but we have no idea of what happened with Jesse. Maybe this movie can give us some long-awaited closure not just on Jesse, but on characters like Skyler White and Walt Jr. as well.
And for the love of god, someone tell Mike’s granddaughter what happened to her grandpa because it breaks my heart thinking she never got to say goodbye.
Another big character that everyone wants to see back in Bryan Cranston, but it’s still unclear on whether he’ll be making a return in this movie. When asked about it, Cranston did say that he would ‘absolutely’ appear if he was asked.
No release date has been set for the Breaking Bad movie.
