Aaron Paul & Bryan Cranston Just Posted Mysterious Messages About the ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie
Hold onto your hazmat suits, because the Breaking Bad movie is (probably?) on its way.
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, who starred in the hit AMC series from 2008 to 2013, both posted the same cryptic message on Twitter, and fans of the show lost their minds. Let the theories run wild.
The tweets both featured the same image of two donkeys (new title: Breaking Burro?) and the word "soon," and it pretty much confirms that we haven't seen the last of Jesse Pinkman and Walter White. Fans of the show went wild for the simultaneous posts from the two former co-stars. What could the post mean? Our best guess: The image features a couple of "drug mules"...ha!
Back in November, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will helm a two-hour project based on the TV series that first aired 11 years ago (we know, we can’t believe it either).
According to World of Reel, the movie (code-named Greenbrier) will feature Breaking Bad veterans Cranston (Walter White), Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Krysten Ritter (Jane Margolis), Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut), Jesse Plemons (Todd Alquist), Charles Baker (Skinny Pete), Matt Jones (Badger), Robert Forster (Ed, aka The Disappearer), Tess Harper (Mrs. Pinkman) and Kevin Rankin (Kenny).
If these reports are true, it probably means that Walter (and a few other characters who were killed off in the TV show) must be featured in flashbacks, or this is a prequel-style project (it was originally planned as a sequel, per Screen Rant).
While we're not sure if Greenbrier is the official name of the film or just a working title, it just so happens that the New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a project called Greenbrier is slated to shoot in the region. The film will take place in the Breaking Bad world and “follow a kidnapped man who escapes and searches for freedom.” (That kidnapped man being Jesse Pinkman, we presume.)
We have some definite clues about the Breaking Bad movie, but we can't be too sure about any specifics yet. We'll just have to trust that there's a meth-head to the madness. (That’s the saying, right?)
