Vince Gilligan, the creator of the critically acclaimed AMC series Breaking Bad as well as its spinoff series Better Call Saul is set to begin production on a Breaking Bad film sometime this month, for a shoot that’s expected to last from mid-November to early February 2019.
The film, which will shoot under the title “Greenbier” will take place in New Mexico. According to the New Mexico Film Offices, they have confirmed with Sony Pictures about the project beginning production.
Interestingly enough, according to the Albuquerque Journal, the New Mexico Film Offices would neither confirm nor deny that the project would be a Breaking Bad movie tied to the canon of the acclaimed series. ABQ Journal also reports that a source close to this project confirmed the production of “Greenbier”. However, Variety reports that they have confirmed that the film will have ties to the Breaking Bad canon.
The logline describes “Greenbier” to be the story of a kidnapped man’s escape and his journey to freedom.
New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis released a statement expressing satisfaction about the production in New Mexico:
“We are happy to welcome ‘Greenbrier’ and Sony Studios to New Mexico. 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.”
Details about whether certain characters from Breaking Bad are set to return for the film remain under wraps, and it is unknown whether the film will be released directly to television on AMC or on the big screen.
Based on the logline however, one could speculate that the kidnapped man and his escape and journey to freedom could refer to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who was last seen in the Breaking Bad series finale driving off to an unknown destination after being rescued by Walter White (Bryan Cranston).
