Walter White’s done it again.
The Breaking Bad movie may already be done filming, according to Vulture. In case you’ve been living under Los Pollos Hermanos, here’s the background: Back in November, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan was helming 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) would feature Breaking Bad veterans Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Aaron 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).
Then, in July, both Cranston and Paul posted the same cryptic message to their Twitter accounts: a picture of two donkeys with the word “Soon” as the caption. Fans went wild with speculation, believing this confirmed the Breaking Bad–themed flick. (Turns out the posts were likely just a reference to their new brand of mezcal.)
Now, according to Bob Odenkirk, star of the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, there’s no more need to tread lightly: The movie’s finished.
“I don’t know what people know and don’t know,” Odenkirk told The Hollywood Reporter. “I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
So, they’ve already finished, it sounds like? We’re hoping for a trailer any day now.
The movie is set to be a sequel-style movie following Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman. It will stream on Netflix and AMC in (early?) 2020.
Better call...a friend. We’re going to be watching more of Jesse’s on-screen mishaps sooner than we think.
