Breaking Bad movie: Vince Gilligan’s feature to air on Netflix & AMC

Deadline is reporting that Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad movie is headed to AMC and Netflix. The outlet notes that the feature could air first on Netflix and then on AMC in a network role-reversal.

The Emmy Award-winning series aired on AMC before seasons were later made available on Netflix. Gilligan credited the streamer for its contribution to the show’s success in his 2013 Emmy acceptance speech, saying that he thinks Netflix helped keep the show on the air.

Whether this film will be a prequel involving Bryan Cranston’s deceased Walter White or Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman (who was kidnapped by Jack Welker’s white supremacist gang in the final season) remains unclear. It could also be focused on Jesse rebuilding his life in the wake of White’s death and being freed from the cartels.

AMC’s Breaking Bad ended its critically acclaimed five-season run with a finale that brought in a series record 10.3 million viewers. It was followed by the prequel series Better Call Saul, focused on Bob Odenkirk’s small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill, which just got renewed for a fifth season.

From acclaimed writer, producer, director Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad was produced by Sony Pictures Television with Mark Johnson (Gran Via) and Michelle MacLaren serving as executive producers. Breaking Bad first premiered on AMC in January 2008 and followed protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife, teenage son who has cerebral palsy and a new baby girl. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to gain financial security for his family, White chooses to enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime and ascends to power in this world.

The series explored how a fatal diagnosis such as White’s releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society, and follows his transformation from mild-mannered family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.
