It is also unknown if either of Breaking Bad's main stars-Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul-are set to return.

According to THR, there's a new story set in the Breaking Bad universe coming in the shape of a two hour movie (though it's unclear if that will be theatrical or made for TV like AMC's Walking Dead movies).

A "Breaking Bad" movie is in the works and the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, is on board.

"Greenbrier" is the title being floated around for a project incredibly light on details.

On that front, the fact that The Albuquerque Journal are reporting that the movie will come with a logline saying it "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom", which very much seems to follow Jesse's story.

The New Mexico Film Office has remained tight-lipped when questioned about the project and is sticking to the "Greenbrier" project name.

Filming will be carried out in Alburquerque from mid November through to February next year.

This is not a drill - Breaking Bad is going to be turned into a film.

Breaking Bad had five seasons to chronicle the slow, maddening descent from suburban banality into criminal underworld for Walter White, a chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer.

It's also not clear as to whether Cranston will be reprising his role for the film, though this seems unlikely as he recently admitted he'd rather not "mess" with its legacy by rebooting the show.

It has been reported that Gilligan will be at the helm of the project - writing the script, executive producing and possibly directing. It would join prequel series Better Call Saul.

The New Mexico film industry and Sony Pictures Television have worked together on both "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul".
