Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is at the helm of the project, which could yet be either for TV or a theater release. Production kicks off next month in New Mexico.

That description is pretty vague, but if I, an embarrassingly huge Breaking Bad fan, were to take a wishful guess, it could be about Jesse Pinkman after the events which take place after the series finale.

Years after ending its fifth and final season in 2013, show creator Vince Gilligan confirmed to Variety on Tuesday, November6 (Wednesday, November 7 in the Philippines) that he is now working on a film connected to the widely-loved, famed series as its scriptwriter, executive producer, and possible director. Most of the details remain under wraps and it's unclear whether original stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will return.

This is the first project for Vince Gilligan - who created "Breaking Bad" and co-created the spinoff, "Better Call Saul" - after signing a three-year deal with Sony Pictures Television in July. A possible story line would track "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom," according to The Albuquerque Journal, which brought the news, Albuquerque being the original filming location for the series. "For years we've built up the film industry in New Mexico and strengthened our film incentives, now we're seeing success after success for the film industry in our state".


Breaking Bad has already spawned the spin-off series Better Call Saul.

Breaking Bad starred Cranston as chemistry teacher Walter White, who turned to manufacturing meth after being diagnosed with cancer. 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.

It has been reported that Gilligan will be at the helm of the project - writing the script, executive producing and possibly directing.
