A Breaking Bad movie is now in the works and fans everywhere are wondering if Walter White will be a part of the film.
Bryan Cranston, who plays Heisenberg, has already made it known that he is excited about the film and would love to be a part of it. However, viewers remember that the Meth Kingpin died helping his friend Jess Pinkman escape from neo-nazis in the series finale. Fans began to speculate, after the news of the film coming to fruition, that somehow White could have survived and it would pick up after his recovery. But, on the Today show on NBC, Cranston made sure everyone knew the current status of his character. Heisenberg is in fact, very much still dead and the actor joked about his character’s corpse participating in the film.
“What? Are they gonna show me on a slab or something. That’s not exciting.”
Cranston does admit that he is not involved in the development of the film and has not seen a script yet. However, with that being said, Cranston looked directly into the camera and sent a message to all Breaking Bad fans out there.
“I’d love to do a Breaking Bad movie.”
The actor’s schedule is pretty locked up right now. The One Who Knocks is doing Broadway with Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany in New York for the next four months. But it is good news to hear that Cranston is on board if Vince Gilligan can find a place for him in a Breaking bad film. All fans should keep their fingers crossed.
If Cranston joins the Breaking Bad film, what role do you think he’ll play? Will he be a figment of Jesse’s imagination? Will it be flashbacks to things we didn’t see in the original series? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
Breaking Bad aired on AMC from 2008 to 2013 and tells the story of Walter White over five seasons. White is a chemistry teacher who turns to a life of crime after he is diagnosed with cancer.
