Find your yellow jumpsuits and an abandoned house, because the newest rumors regarding the highly secretive Breaking Bad movie claim the film will make its debut on Netflix before airing on AMC.
There has been no official comment from either the streaming service or the cable channel, but Deadline has reported that creator Vince Gilligan’s untitled Breaking Bad movie will bypass theaters and air on Netflix before making its cable debut on AMC, home to Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, a short while later.
Gilligan has previously stated Netflix played a large part in keeping Breaking Bad on the air at AMC.
“I think Netflix kept us on the air,” he said during the 2013 Emmy Awards. “Not only are we standing up here, I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond Season 2. ... It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”
Very little is known about the Breaking Bad movie, though reports suggest it will be a direct sequel to the series, following Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman as he flees his captors and tries to make a new life for himself.
Principal photography on the film began in secret in New Mexico in November. The most recent rumors claim Paul will be joined by several prominent original cast members from the AMC drama, including Bryan Cranston, Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Banks and Jesse Plemons, most likely in some form of hallucination or flashback.
The Breaking Bad movie does not currently have a release date.
