Re­ports: ‘Break­ing Bad’ movie in the works

The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - KICKOFF/FROM THE FRONT PAGE -

“Break­ing Bad” — the movie — is com­ing. A movie set in the so-called “Break­ing Bad” uni­verse is ex­pected to be­gin pro­duc­tion in Al­bu­querque this month and will be di­rected and writ­ten by orig­i­nal “Bad” showrun­ner Vin­cent Gil­li­gan, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

This will be the sec­ond “Bad” spinoff — the first, of course, “Bet­ter Call Saul,” which re­cently wrapped a fourth sea­son.

The film, with the work­ing ti­tle “Green­brier,” will be­gin pro­duc­tion in Novem­ber, ac­cord­ing to the Al­bu­querque Jour­nal, which said the New Mex­ico Film Of­fice — which has worked closely with the “Bad” and “Saul” pro­duc­tion teams over a decade — con­firmed the movie.

The most ob­vi­ous and im­por­tant ques­tion: Will Wal­ter White — Bryan Cranston — re­turn? Nei­ther the Jour­nal nor the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter con­firmed cast­ing. Cranston be­gins an 18-week run at the Be­lasco The­atre as the lead in “Net­work” start­ing Satur­day. Aaron Paul — Jesse Pinkman — has joined the cast of “West­world,” which has yet to be­gin pro­duc­tion on the third sea­son.
