‘Breaking Bad’, a show that resonated with the masses like never before and went on to become the highest-rated television series on IMDB is expected to come back on the silver screen. Vince Gilligan, the creator of the series is expected to write and direct the feature, which is gearing up for a shoot in New Mexico beginning in mid-November and lasting through February.

The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a Sony production is shooting during that time period under the name “Greenbrier,” which is believed to be the “Breaking Bad” movie. The plot long line for “Greenbrier” says the project centers around “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”

It remains unclear if the movie will be a prequel or sequel to the original TV show, and it’s not known if the original cast will be involved in the forthcoming project. Vince Gilligan, along with ‘Better Call Saul’ executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein will be heading the project.

Gilligan admitted earlier this year that he “desperately” wanted to reunite Walter White and Jesse Pinkman on Better Call Saul. However. Bryan Cranston said that he didn’t desire Breaking Bad to return for a new series.

Breaking Bad‘s 10th anniversary is set to be honored with a vinyl soundtrack release later this month.
