Breaking Bad movie in the pipeline
Secret feature project is due to begin filming in New Mexico soon.
US reports suggest a Breaking Bad feature is in development, although it isn’t clear if it will be for cinemas or television.
The Albuquerque Journal reports the New Mexico Film Office indicated “Greenbrier,” will begin production in the Duke City mid-November through early February.
A source close to the project confirmed that the project was a Breaking Bad film.
According to the logline, “Greenbrier” (possibly a project code name) tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. It will employ approximately 300 New Mexico crew members, 16 New Mexico actors and approximately 450 New Mexico background talent.
“We are happy to welcome “Greenbrier”and Sony Studios to New Mexico,” said New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “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.”
It’s still unclear whether original cast members including, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, will return for the film.
Deadline reports deals are still being made by Sony for the project, but that producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein who have worked with creator Vince Gilligan on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul will return.
