Bryan Cranston would be up to return for the Breaking Bad movie -- if he's asked, of course.
In light of the news that Vince Gilligan is currently working on a Breaking Bad film, speculation has spread over what the film will be about and who it would center around. Speculation has spread that the film will center around Jesse Pinkman, as played by Aaron Paul, following the events of the series finale. Paul's former Breaking Bad co-star has come out in support of the upcoming television movie, and has confirmed that he would love to appear in it.
Cranston, who won multiple Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Walter White in the series, has been upfront about what he knows about the film and his overall excitement for the project. While appearing on the Dan Patrick Show, Cranston was asked about the film.
“Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad. But I honestly have not even read the script. So I couldn’t tell you... If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely. He’s a genius,” Cranston said.
At the end of Breaking Bad, Jesse Pinkman finally escaped the meth lab he’d been forced into by a gang of Neo-Nazis. Initially condemned there by Walter White, he’s ultimately saved by him. As Walter walks back into the lab and seemingly dies from his injuries, Jesse steals a car and drives away. His story is left open-ended, which seems to be where the proposed film will pick up.
It’s unknown how Walter would appear in the film (potentially as a dream sequence or flashback), but it’s interesting that Cranston was in the know and seems excited to potentially work with Gilligan again.
