Filming on the forthcoming Breaking Bad movie has wrapped up, meaning that the story of the unlikely meth-cooking duo of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, played by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, isn't quite as finished as the series finale suggested.
Filming on Breaking Bad Movie Complete, Release Date to Be Determined
Actor Bob Odenkirk revealed in an interview with MovieWeb that filming on the upcoming Breaking Bad movie has finished, meaning that the story of the meth-dealing duo of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, played by actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, lives on--at least for one more movie. Odenkirk, who plays lawyer Saul Goodman in the series, was speaking with MovieWeb to promote the upcoming fifth season of Better Call Saul, a spin-off from Breaking Bad.
Last year, Variety revealed that the creator of the highly-rated and multiple award winning series, Vince Gilligan, was working on a Breaking Bad movie. At the time, it wasn't known what the film would be about, whether the original stars of the series would return, or whether the film would be a theatrical release, a streaming release, or would run on TV. Back in June though, both Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston tweeted out identical images of two donkeys (mules? I have no idea) in the desert with the same cryptic message, "Soon," all but confirming that the movie would involve the two protagonists of the original series.
Odenkirk, for his part, was otherwise fairly tight-lipped about the whole thing, saying "I don't know what people know and don't know. I find it hard to believe you don't know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They've done an amazing job of keeping it a secret."
According to TheHollywood Reporter, the film will focus on the aftermath of the series finale, which I will not spoil for anyone here. The film will stream on Netflix and will run on AMC sometime next year, so you have plenty of time to catch yourself up on what is arguably one of the greatest television shows of all time, whose fans--unlike Game of Thrones--voted its final season as the greatest season of television ever.
