Lights, camera, action, bitch! It’s been revealed that a Breaking Bad movie from creator Vince Gilligan is in the works at AMC that will reportedly follow Aaron Paul’s character, Jesse Pinkman, after the events of the series finale.
Breaking Bad premiered in January 2008, on AMC and followed Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with cancer who finds himself in the dark world of cooking meth with his clueless apprentice Jesse Pinkman (Paul). The series went on to win 16 Emmy awards and currently holds a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It also inspired a spin-off, Better Call Saul, and still remains to be on the most well-written and thought out series to ever hit the small screen.
Seeing that the series finale definitely left some things open for interpretation, fans were absolutely freaking out about the news that the universe would be not only continuing but expanding. If you’re having Deja Vu, you may want to head on over to our Walking Dead section to read all about their upcoming film venture as well.

Words can’t express how great this news is!! There was no final closure for Walter White. Give Heisenberg a farewell on the big screen, it’s fitting. Jesse’s story had more closure because he broke free. What happened once the cops grabbed Walter? Revived him? #BreakingBad

Are you excited about the Breaking Bad movie? The entire series is currently streaming on Netflix!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
