Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman in the upcoming flick, which will be streaming on Netflix first before heading over to AMC, which is currently the home for Breaking Bad prequel series, Better Call Saul.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming movie will be written by original series creator Vince Gilligan, who will executive produce the project alongside franchise collaborators Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.
Gilligan, sources say, will direct the film, which will follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.
It is unclear whether Bryan Cranston who played the lead in the show will return as Walter White.
“It’s a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale],” Cranston said on The Dan Patrick Show.
“This idea, from what I’m told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey.”
He added, “I don’t know if there’s an appearance — flashbacks, flash forwards — but I’m excited about it because it’s Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can’t wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit.”
