"After it launched to critical acclaim on AMC, producers Sony TV sold the drama's streaming rights to Netflix, which helped first-run episodes on the basic cable network broaden its audience and soar to new highs", they explain. According to a description of that film, the movie "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".
It's worth noting that this isn't the first time a Breaking Bad movie has been a glimmering prospect on our horizons. While we're waiting on those to arrive: have you revisited Breaking Bad recently?
A few precious details are finally emerging about Vince Gilligan's upcoming "Breaking Bad" movie.
"I think Netflix kept us on the air", he said at the time.
Lots is still up in the air about the planned feature, which comes from original series creator Vince Gilligan. It sounds like we'll be following Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), last seen driving like a bat out of hell after Walter White (Bryan Cranston) killed a bunch of white supremacists who were imprisoning Jesse and forcing him to make high-quality meth. I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two [if not for Netflix]. He's spent the last few years overseeing spin-off show Better Call Saul (which, heretical opinion forthcoming, is nearly definitely better than Breaking Bad), and he's now deep in production on a Breaking Bad spin-off movie.
This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons. Production is believed to be wrapping up this month in New Mexico.
In November, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston confirmed the movie was happening but said that he had seen a script.
