Could There Be A “Breaking Bad” Movie?
Breaking Bad will be entering its fifth and final season this summer, but does that mean the complete end of the story? According to series star Bryan Cranston, the story of Walt and company could continue to the big screen.
Details after the break.
While the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, initially felt that he couldn’t move the story beyond the final season’s 16 episodes, Cranston suggested otherwise, noting that he feels that they now have too much story.
As for the possibilty of a movie?
“It’s not far-fetched, I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility,” Cranston said.” And this is coming from a guy who doesn’t know anything of how the show’s going to end. If it doesn’t end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he’s still alive, that is.”
Dead or alive, you can probably rest assured that season five is probably going to be the toughest for Walt.
“We can look forward to Walt’s ego growing by leaps and bounds for having killed Gus Fring,” Vince said. “To this point, Walt’s been able to lie to himself and reason that he’s done all these terrible things for his family. But that’s a lie that’s harder and harder to maintain as this upcoming season progresses and the money piles up and he’s faced more and more with the badness that he’s done.
He’s going to be a harder guy to root for, I promise you that. The experiment of the show has been to take a good guy and have him transform himself into a bad guy. And we’re committed to seeing that through to the very end.”
Season premiere for Breaking Bad is July 15.
