According to The Hollywood Reporter, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will helm a two-hour project based on the TV series that first aired TEN years ago (we know, we can't believe it either).

Whether this film will be a prequel involving Bryan Cranston's deceased Walter White or Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman (who was kidnapped by Jack Welker's white supremacist gang in the final season) remains unclear.

It's now unclear if the project will be released to theatres or television. The previous report noted that production would commence in New Mexico next month.

"There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad", Cranston said, but he added "I honestly have not even read the script". However, to follow up on that almost ideal series finale (I have some complaints about the final season which I will one day put into words, but this is neither the time or the place) by tidying up Jesse's ending or, worse, showing that his freedom was short lived would undermine the entire point of his ending.

Hof, 72, was found dead on October 16 by adult film star Ron Jeremy after a weekend of parties celebrating Hof's birthday. Dennis Hof , a brothel owner who died last month , overwhelmingly won an election to Nevada's State Assembly on Tuesday.


"You want to think back on it favorably and say, 'I don't want to mess with it.' It was a flawless opportunity for all of us".

A "Breaking Bad" movie is in the works and the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, is on board.

"If I put on his clothes, and shaved my head, and put those glasses on, and maybe the Heisenberg hat, I think those talismans could send me back there quickly", Cranston said, "almost like the evocative song sends you back into your memories". Though the film office wouldn't confirm or deny that the project was a Breaking Bad film, the publication claims that a source close to the project confirmed the production. There are certain limitations on continuing their stories from the show, as anyone who watched Breaking Bad no doubt realizes.

Breaking Bad was a critical breakout and ran for a successful five season. The series was created by Gilligan and starred Cranston, Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Jonathan Banks, Laura Fraser, and Jesse Plemons. "But I'm excited about it, because it's Breaking Bad", he said.
