Try to tread lightly (and scream softly), because we just got another Breaking Bad movie update from Aaron Paul.
On Monday, the Westworld season three star posted an Instagram of himself and former co-star Bryan Cranston wading through a river while holding their shoes. He captioned the post, "Even sooner." So, does this mean the unnamed Breaking Bad movie is coming this year?! We can only hope...
Last week, Paul and Cranston, who starred in the hit AMC series from 2008 to 2013, both posted the same cryptic message on Twitter. 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).
TBD on whether Greenbrier is the official name of the film or just a working title, but 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.)
Now, with this new photo, it seems Paul and Cranston might already be on location. Perhaps they've even begun filming?
We guess we'll just have to wait 'til more details, er, crystallize. (See what we did there?)
