Netflix & AMC to be the ones who knock for Gilligan's Breaking Bad movie

"Science, bitch!"

According to a new report courtesy of Deadline Hollywood, Netflix and AMC are positioning themselves to be the ones who knock for Vince Gilligan's long-gestating and hotly-anticipated BREAKING BAD movie.

While no confirmations have been made, it's possible that Netflix will be the first to huff on Heisenberg's "Blue Sky," with AMC joining the party shortly thereafter. It makes sense that Netflix and AMC would share the release, seeing as both platfoms are responsible for BREAKING BAD becoming the ratings juggernaut that it was during the show's 2008-2013 run.

“I think Netflix kept us on the air,” Gillian said during a 2013 Emmy speech related to the original series. “Not only are we standing up here, I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond season two. … It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”

Not much is known about the BREAKING BAD film project at this time, other than that it's to be thought that Gilligan will write and direct the feature. Furthermore, there are also lingering questions about how the project will be presented, be it in the form of a straight-forward feature or an episodic offering. Deadline suggests that the endeavor is to be shot as a feature, but again, nothing has been confirmed at this time. Regardless, it sounds as if this is really happening, and I'm sure that many of us will be there for whatever form the project takes.

For those of you who've yet to experience the five-season television phenomenon, BREAKING BAD centers on a high school chemistry teacher by the name of Walter White, who after being diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer turns to manufacturing and selling methamphetamine in order to secure his family's future. Before long, Walter's life spirals out of control, placing him and the people he loves in grave danger. The series ended with one hell of an ambiguous cliffhanger, which begs the questions: how will the film address the series' intense final shot?
