Movie ver­sion of ‘Break­ing Bad’ com­ing, but will Wal­ter White be in it?

The Herald (South Africa) - - News -

Pop­u­lar TV drama Break­ing Bad is com­ing back in movie for­mat, the show’s star, Bryan Cranston, said, but it was not clear if his iconic char­ac­ter, Wal­ter White, would be in it.

The TV se­ries told the story of White, a high school sci­ence teacher who re­sponds to a ter­mi­nal cancer di­ag­no­sis by turn­ing into a pow­er­ful drug lord.

It is one of the best-re­viewed shows in tele­vi­sion his­tory and earned a to­tal of 16 Em­mys, in­clud­ing four best ac­tor prizes for Cranston, and two Golden Globes.

“There ap­pears to be a movie ver­sion of Break­ing Bad, but I hon­estly have not even read the script,” Cranston, 62, said on The Dan Pa­trick Show, a syn­di­cated ra­dio pro­gramme.

“So there’s a ques­tion whether or not we would even see Wal­ter White in this movie.”

Spoiler alert: White died at the end of the se­ries, which aired in the United States on ca­ble net­work AMC.

But Cranston said he would “ab­so­lutely” be in­ter­ested in bring­ing White back – should show cre­ator Vince Gil­li­gan ask him to do so. –
