The 'Breaking Bad' Movie Could Debut on Netflix, Is A Jesse Story

Breaking Bad is definitely one of the best shows of the past decade, and it still very much stands the test of time. Netflix really helped spur the growth of Breaking Bad's audience, so it's only fitting that they should get the feature-length film, but it's cool that AMC will also get to air the movie so that Breaking Bad comes home in a way. Sources also told The Hollywood Reporter that Netflix will show the flick before it airs on AMC.

Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable's request for comment. (Hopefully not in a drug haze, though.) So it's only fitting that the shrouded-in-secrecy Breaking Bad movie will reportedly be released on Netflix, then AMC, where the show aired. Even Gilligan himself acknowledged that when accepting the show's first Emmy for Best Drama. "Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two", he said.

Brexit supporters say the decision to leave the European Union will provide a chance for Britain to take on a new global role. In his speech in London, Williamson did not announce any new funding beyond what was allocated at a 2018 budget.

Though it hasn't been confirmed officially, Revenge of The Fans claim to have seen the official cast list, and states Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as antihero Walter White, alongside Todd, Badger and Skinny Pete.

Gilligan, who sources say is writing and directing the Breaking Bad movie, will be working alongside Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul executive producers Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson. The streamer also gave one of its original film productions, Roma, a rare extended theatrical run; the film is now a front-runner for this month's Best Picture award at the Academy Awards. 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. The movie will be a sequel to the events of Breaking Bad, which means it's unlikely we'd see Walter White again, but perhaps some other familiar faces could pop up.
