Better Call Saul executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein have also been linked to the movie - so it's definitely going to stay true to the vibes of the original series and to the Breaking Bad universe.

The only semi-concrete piece of information we have regarding the Breaking Bad movie is that it will reportedly "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" - but even that hasn't been corroborated.

While no cast members from the AMC series have been confirmed to return, series creator Vince Gilligan is spearheading the project after signing a three-year deal renewal with Sony Pictures Television this past July.

According to SlashFilm, Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Pinkman. We also don't know if this will be a theatrical release or a made-for-TV movie.

The show detailed the fate of Walter H. White (Bryan Cranston) a mild-mannered chemistry teacher who morphs into a fearsome drug kingpin in an effort to build a fortune for his family.

Obviously, Aaron Paul's returning for the project, though there's now no word as to which other Breaking Bad cast members might appear.

A movie set in the so-called Breaking Bad universe is expected to begin production in Albuquerque in the United States this month and will be directed and written by original showrunner Vincent Gilligan, according to reports.

Series creator Vince Gilligan is said to be overseeing the project, but that's about all that's being reported right now.

So, on a scale of one to 10, how psyched are you for a Breaking Bad movie? There are certain limitations on continuing their stories from the show, as anyone who watched Breaking Bad no doubt realizes. Production in the Duke City is scheduled to begin mid-November through early February, according to the Journal. Now, fans' favourite Breaking Bad will be revived as a film. As you'd expect, multiple Emmy Award-winner Aaron Paul is thought to be closely tied to the project.

Both critics say there is plenty still to mine in the Breaking Bad storyline, and that Gilligan has proven his ability to make quality work.
