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?
Lawyer in breaking bad
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

Donald Trump is spending the week in Florida recharging the batteries at Mar-a-Lago, and who could begrudge him a rare golfing break? The last few days have been action-packed even for him. Many leaders of the free world would be content with either a) celebrating a gesture bombing raid on Syria as “mission accomplished”, in absolute ignorance of that phrase’s resonance; b) repeatedly calling the former FBI director he sacked a “slimeball”; c) humiliating his UN ambassador by letting her announce that new sanctions against Russia were imminent, and reneging on that within hours; or d) implying that the Feds’ raid on his lawyer’s office is up there with Pearl Harbour in terms of days that forever live in infamy, by identifying it as “an attack on our country”. For Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, any of the above might have sated the appetite for traditional statesmanship. For the titan who with God’s … [Read more...] about Is it me or is Donald Trump’s administration becoming less like The Sopranos and more like Breaking Bad?
On Monday, Sean Hannity walked himself right into an awkward comparison. It happened following the bombshell revelation in a Manhattan courtroom that Trump attorney Michael Cohen's client list included the Fox News host. On his afternoon radio show, Hannity explained that his relationship with Cohen was limited to a few "brief discussions" on business matters. "I might have handed him 10 bucks [and said,] 'I definitely want your attorney-client privilege on this,'" Hannity told listeners Monday afternoon. "Something like that." Online, the "handed him 10 bucks" line immediately launched comparisons to an infamous scene from AMC's smash hit, "Breaking Bad." In a memorable exchange involving one of the shadiest lawyers in television history, attorney Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, tells the show's meth-dealing main characters to "put a dollar in my pocket" to assure their conversations about criminal misdeeds remain protected. And if you are trying to steer clear of a scandal, … [Read more...] about Analysis: Sean Hannity’s idea of ‘attorney-client privilege’ was right out of ‘Breaking Bad’
