We've heard reports of a Breaking Bad Movie coming our way for some time and now, it looks like we may be getting some sort of official confirmation on that front in the very near future. If that's not the case, then, for some other reason, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are both teasing their involvement in something that is coming our way. If not related to the beloved show they both starred in together, then what could this possibly be about?
Let's start with what's going on. Taking to Twitter, both Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White on the hit AMC drama, and Aaron Paul, who played his meth-making counterpart Jesse Pinkman, shared an identical image of two donkeys standing next to one another in a desert landscape. While it remains totally unclear what the significance of that image is, both actors shared the image with the same, very simple and intriguing, one-word caption.
It's not hard to start connecting dots, even if they're just hopeful dots, given the information being presented here. When coupling that with what we already know, it's even more difficult not to assume this has to do with a future reunion between Walt and Jesse. Back in November 2018 reports first started circulating that creator Vince Gilligan was set to work on a Breaking Bad movie that would film in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the original series took place. Since then, multiple reports have stated that AMC and Netflix are partnering up for the production. Bryan Cranston has also been asked about it and, while he hasn't outright confirmed that it's happening, or that he's returning, he's been very sure not to deny anything either.
According to prior reports, the movie will serve as a sequel to the events of the show. It will center on Jesse Pinkman following his escape from captivity at the end of the series. As fans will be sure to note, Walt died in the show's closing moments. So, clearly, Bryan Cranston couldn't appear in the flesh. It's possible he could be incorporated via flashbacks or dream sequences. Another prior report indicated other familiar faces such as Krysten Ritter (Jane), Jonathan Banks (Mike) and Jesse Plemons (Todd), who also happen to be dead, would be incorporated. If that's true, the movie could rely heavily on exploring the demons from Jesse's past.
For now, AMC has yet to officially announced anything. But, Breaking Bad remains one of the most beloved shows in the history of TV and its spin-off series, Better Call Saul, has been doing exceptionally well for itself as well. If Vince Gilligan has an idea for a movie, there's no doubt they would jump at the opportunity. If these tweets are any indication, we could be learning something official very soon.
