A Breaking Bad movie? Bryan Cranston doesn't rule it out
Here's the deal-- what I'm about to post contains spoilers for those who have not watched BREAKING BAD through the 4th season. If you are not all caught up, please do so then revisit this article if you wish.
One last warning...if you are not caught up on BREAKING BAD do not read past this sentence.
Alright, warned enough. So when it the question of a possible BREAKING BAD movie was brought up, creator Vince Gilligan did not think that he had enough story to fill 16 episodes. Now, it seems that he has way more story than he thought he would end up with.
Bryan Cranston said this, “Vince feels that now we have too much story. We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes.”
As far as a movie goes, this is how Cranston sees it, “It’s not far-fetched. I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility. 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.”
But Walter White may not live to make it to a movie, Gilligan cautioned. His possibilities surviving through all this are iffy.
So what will happen with Walter? Gilligan offered this (and the last two sentences gave me chills), "We can look forward to Walt’s ego growing by leaps and bounds for having killed Gus Fring. 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.”
|Extra Tidbit:||The LA Times also has another great article on "'Breaking Bad' and the Gus Fring issue". Major spoilers there too.|
