Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is at the helm of the project, which could yet be either for TV or a theater release. Most of the details remain under wraps and it’s unclear whether original stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will return. Likewise, it’s unknown whether it’ll be a prequel a la AMC’s Better Call Saul or will take place after the events of Breaking Bad‘s epic 2013 finale.
There is one tiny hint about the plot, however. THR states in its report that the story is believed to follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. It adds that production is starting in New Mexico this month and that the movie is shooting under the project name Greenbrier. Whether that title is a red herring or a working title is yet to be known.
Sources told THR that Gilligan is penning the script, producing, and potentially directing. Better Call Saul executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are rumored to be involved, too.
