Capitalizing on the show's timeless success, creator Vince Gilligan confirmed that a film project is being made. And now, sources at Variety have announced that it's been picked up by Netflix and serves as a sequel to the original series – with Aaron Paul returning as Jesse Pinkman.
The Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel with Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul)
What's the story of the Breaking Bad movie?
It's hard to say, a lot's been kept in secret. But according to a few circulating rumours, the movie will follow Jesse in his quest for freedom after the harrowing series finale. Vince Gilligan is coming back to write and direct.
Perhaps Gilligan is planning to connect Breaking Bad with the much-respected spin-off series Better Call Saul? It's not a bad bet, considering how much Saul jumps between timelines.
But news of the movie being a sequel is worrying. The end of Breaking Bad was definitively the best TV ending of all time, and it's difficult to think how it could be improved. But at least Gilligan is heavily involved in the project, which might put Breaking Bad purists at ease.

Who's in the cast for the Breaking Bad movie?
Aside from Aaron Paul, no new or returning cast members have been announced. Bryan Cranston is probably waiting for the call, but his involvement is unlikely considering how Breaking Bad concluded. But who knows, maybe Walter White will come back? Anything's possible at this point.
What's the Breaking Bad movie release date?
No idea. Everything's been kept under wraps, so we'll have to be patient... or just re-binge Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul again. Truth be told, we're looking for any excuse.
