Hide your money and jump-start your RVs, because the long-rumored Breaking Bad movie will reportedly begin filming later this month.
The New Mexico Film Office had previously announced production of a feature film entitled Greenbrier from Sony Pictures, but a source close to the production has confirmed to The Albuquerque Journal that the movie is, in fact, a Breaking Bad spinoff.
The film office would not comment on the project being a Breaking Bad film, but both Breaking Bad and its prequel show Better Call Saul have used false names for their productions in the past.
Greenbrier, officially, follows “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom,” and is scheduled to begin filming in Albuquerque in mid-November and continue through early February. Though no further information has been given, it would certainly appear that the film could be a direct sequel to Breaking Bad, following Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman as he tries to put his meth-making past behind him.
This would be the first project for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan after signing a three year deal with Sony Pictures Television in July. Both Breaking Bad and Saul were set and filmed in Albuquerque, under the Sony Pictures Television banner.
