NFT: Breaking Bad Movie

UESBLUE : 11/8/2018 10:27 am
(CNN)A "Breaking Bad" movie is really happening, yo.
The series star Bryan Cranston appeared on Wednesday's episode of "The Dan Patrick Show" and confirmed the project.

Still my favorite series of all time

I really can't imagine them making a movie. How can it even approach the series.
I don't really understand how they are going to fit this into

the timeline...but I will take it. My second favorite show of all time to Thrones.
I read this yesterday

and I couldn't figure out how.

If it's before he broke bad, is it about the founding of gray matter?

Sounds boring.

And then if not, he's dead.

Of course Vince Gilligan is more creative than me so he'll I'm sure come up with something awesome.
Have faith

They somehow made Better Call Saul into a homerun. I think coming up with 50+ hours of compelling prequel, where we know the fates of the key characters, is much much more difficult than continuing the story for another 2 hours. I'm excited by this news.
The word is that it would be a direct sequel

Focusing on Jesse Pinkman.

Yeah I don't think we'll see Walt

Perhaps in flashbacks if he is indeed involved. Or maybe he is directing or something.
I thought BCS was a dumb idea  
UConn4523 : 11/8/2018 11:14 am : link
and I wound up liking it more than B.B. so I wonít fully write this off. That said I donít really want/need more of Jesse and Walt so I donít really care about this as of now.
One of the best things about Breaking Bad  
Pork Chop : 11/8/2018 11:27 am : link
was the interesting and layered characters. There are so many directions a movie/new series could go. Given the success and quality of Better Call Saul, this run could last a very long time:

* Gus Fring background: coming from Chile, making it to Mexico, relationship with the other Chicken Brothers guy
* Hank Schrader: clearly the guy has some anxiety issues and overcompensates by putting up a bravado front. Must be an interesting backstory (similar to Mike's son in Philly).
* Walter's arc before cancer: how he rose to form Gray Matter, and even after that he was part of a nobel-winning team at a high tech chemistry institute (a plaque is shown in a flashback when they were shopping for houses I think). He had big plans, when they were looking for houses they wanted a big family and big house and he clearly saw a bright future. Something happened to place him as a mid-tier faculty member at a high school. And I'm sure it would be interesting to see how they dealt with their son having CP.
* Skinny Pete (he went from concert piano to not being able to spell "street"), Andrea, Jesse and countless others must have really compelling backstories that got them to where they are in Breaking Bad.
I watched this show like 3 times over

Did someone actually confirm WW died? It would be pretty cheesy if they resuscitated him or whatever.

In the video linked Bryan Cranston says "Maybe Walter White did get away with it. Was there a coroners report? Was there a listing in the obituary?" (Start around 2:50)

Probably a lot of Walt talking to Jesse  
RobCarpenter : 11/8/2018 12:15 pm : link
But in Jesse's mind.

If anyone can make it work it's Vince Gilligan.

Who knows, maybe Jesse will show up at the Cinnabon in Omaha.

I just hope it includes Huell

poor guys still sitting in that hotel room, as far as we know
We know that Jesse makes it out  
Bold Ruler : Mod : 11/8/2018 12:18 pm : link
We also know that Saul (Jimmy) makes it out to Nebraska. The other central characters to the meth were all dead. Doubt you could have a movie about the Whites or Marie or The Schwartz couple. But you need more than just Jesse. I trust Vince 100%. It should be amazing.

One storyline would very naturally be the DEA and police after Jesse. They wouldnít know the whole deal with Jacks neo-nazis keeping Jesse captive, but they would be on the hunt for Hankís killer and know of Hankís long obsession with Jesse
Wish we could have a prequel with these two

Vince Gilligan and his team of writers  
PaulBlakeTSU : 11/8/2018 1:06 pm : link
have shown themselves to be excellent storytellers and have done an excellent job taking a character (Saul) and building out an entire new show around him that stands on its own.

They have earned my trust, let alone the benefit of the doubt, that they will figure out a way to make a compelling movie.
