In a little under 48 hours, we've learned a lot about the surprise Breaking Bad movie. Breaking Bad and its prequel, Better Caul Saul's executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also reported to be attached to the film.

This is the first project for Vince Gilligan - who created "Breaking Bad" and co-created the spinoff, "Better Call Saul" - after signing a three-year deal with Sony Pictures Television in July.

Per the New Mexico Film Office, "Greenbriar" is going into production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the same place that hit crime drama "Breaking Bad" was set and filmed. The movie "will be set in the existing Breaking Bad franchise", according to sources.

Despite, White dying at the end of the series, Cranston said he would "absolutely" be interested in bringing White back should show creator Gilligan ask him to do so. And though a full plot synopsis has not been released yet, according to The Hollywood Reporter's sources, the story will "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".

It's also rumoured that the project has been given the working title of "Greenbier".

Additionally, via TheWrap, Bryan Cranston confirmed that the Breaking Bad film is in production on The Dan Patrick Show. "I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script", Cranston admitted.

He said: "I think there's an excellent chance of any or all of these folks showing up.[but] you will not see Walt or Jesse in Season 4 of "Better Call Saul".

However, it is unclear if Bryan Cranston's character White will be making an appearance in the movie.

They'll be watching the new movie - will you?

But this hasn't quite had the reaction we were anticipating - many fans have said there's simply no need to make a film from the successful series. "All these bad things he's witnessed are going to scar him as well, but the romantic in me wants to believe that he gets away with it and moves to Alaska and has a peaceful life communing with nature".
