A few months back we were one of the first sites to report that Vince Gilligan was going to shoot a “Breaking Bad” movie in New Mexico. However, there wasn’t much to report beyond that, no plot details were mentioned. Bryan Cranston's Walter White died in the series finale and I had mentioned that, if a film were to be made, chances are it could revolve around Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman.
Slash Film then confirmed my suspicions; Yes, the upcoming “Breaking Bad” project, titled “Greenbrier,” would be about Jesse Pinkman and would pick up immediately after Pinkman escaped in the series finale.
“If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, then sure, absolutely,” Cranston admits. “This idea, from what I’m told, gets into those, at least a couple of the characters that were not completed as far as their journey.”
Now we can confirm, through Revenge of the Fans, that the cast of Greenbrier will include several key Breaking Bad players, including Jonathan Banks (Mike), Jesse Plemons (Todd), Charles Baker (Skinny Pete), Matt Jones (Badger), Robert Forster (Ed, aka The Disappearer), Tess Harper (Mrs. Pinkman), and Kevin Rankin (Kenny).
And two names sure to excite Breaking Bad fans: Krysten Ritter (who played Jane), and “Mr. White” himself, Bryan Cranston.
Both characters died during the series, so maybe this is a sequel and a prequel mixed into a hybrid of some sort. Who knows, but this has just skyrocketed into the top of our must-see lists for 2019, or maybe 2020, depending on when shooting wraps.
