Hit US television series Breaking Bad may have achieved that rare feat – a perfect ending – but it doesn't mean that creator Vince Gilligan isn't planning to write an extra chapter in the drugs drama. The Hollywood Reporter claims the the show's writer is "working on a two-hour movie" based on the same high school teacher-turned-meth baron concept that made Breaking Bad an international phenomenon. Neither Gilligan nor Breaking Bad's producers responded to requests for comment, and it's not yet clear if any of the original Breaking Bad cast – such as Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White, or Aaron Paul, who played his sidekick Jesse – will return for a film. It's also not apparent if the film would be released in cinemas or go straight to television. Sources do say, however, that Gilligan would write the script, executive produce and maybe even direct the Breaking Bad film. Also involved are Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, who … [Read more...] about Vince Gilligan working on a Breaking Bad film – but Heisenberg isn’t guaranteed

The creator of the popular AMC series, Vince Gilligan, is penning a script for a two-hour production based on the drama - which told the tale of Bryan Cranston's anti-hero, mild-mannered teacher-turned-drug baron Walter White - though it's not known whether it will be shown in cinemas or aired on television. It's also not clear as to whether Cranston will be reprising his role for the film, though this seems unlikely as he recently admitted he'd rather not "mess" with its legacy by rebooting the show. The feature will be set in the pre-existing'Breaking Bad world, and it has been suggested that Bob Odenkirk, who starred as Saul Goodman in the spin-off 'Better Call Saul', could make an appearance. The movie has a tentative title of 'Greenbrier', and will follow "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom". The New Mexico Film Office confirmed that a Sony production under that name will start filming in Albuquerque - where the original series was filmed - later this month, … [Read more...] about Vince Gilligan penning Breaking Bad movie but will Walter White return?
Well, well, well. Just when we thought Kim and Jimmy’s relationship was in its death throes, a bit of mail fraud chicanery has breathed new life into it. As with most pieces of seemingly positive news in Better Call Saul, this spells trouble. Let’s break ‘Coushatta’ down, sub-plot by sub-plot: Nacho Varga Gus’s cartel mole made a comeback this week, having apparently recovered from the injuries he sustained back in episode three. His brutal shooting in a staged attack clearly left more than just physical marks on him and, back at the restaurant, he had no time for a dealer turning in a light envelope, promptly ripping out the man’s earring and a large part of his earlobe with it. Back at Nacho’s house, we learned that he has fake ID cards for himself and his father ready – all part of a plan to flee to Manitoba, Canada which is currently on the back-burner. His insanely lavish home was a distraction, though, … [Read more...] about Kim Wexler breaks bad in season-best Better Call Saul episode: Review
Breaking Bad is gone, but Walter White may be coming back to television – and maybe even the big screen. The show's creator Vince Gilligan said at Comic-Con on Thursday that there is an excellent chance that the Bryan Cranston character and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman will be in the show's spinoff Better Call Saul at some point. Gilligan, Cranston and Paul were joined by many of their fellow Breaking Bad castmates in the 6,500-seat Hall H to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show. But don't get too excited: Gilligan said the characters will not appear in season 4 of Better Call Saul when it picks up in August. "We don't want to jerk folks around," Gilligan said. "But we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn't appear in the show before it ended." Better Call Saul is a prequel spin-off of Breaking Bad that tracks the rise of a struggling lawyer played by Bob Odenkirk into the go-to attorney for top criminals in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
