If a Breaking Bad movie were actually happening - if, as the Albuquerque Journal claimed, Vince Gilligan really was spearheading the project and taking it into production this month - we certainly would've heard about it before now, and definitelywouldn't be hearing about it for the first time via the Albuquerque Journal (extremely Bobby Bottleservice voice: "No disrespect").

Given that Vince Gilligan has been busy with Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul, fans of the original show probably weren't expecting him to be cooking up a movie based on the idea. Most of the details remain under wraps and it's unclear whether original stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will return.

"We are happy to welcome "Greenbrier" and Sony Studios to New Mexico", said New Mexico State Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. The logline, reported by the Journal, follows the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.

The New Mexico Film Office has remained tight-lipped when questioned about the project and is sticking to the "Greenbrier" project name. "For years we've built up the film industry in New Mexico and strengthened our film incentives, now we're seeing success after success for the film industry in our state".

Breaking Bad, which starred Bryan Cranston as chemistry teacher Walter White who turned to cooking meth after getting diagnosed with cancer, became a breakout hit for AMC and ran for five seasons from 2008 to 2013.

He turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, with the aim of securing his family's financial future before he dies.

Breaking Bad has already spawned the spin-off series Better Call Saul. Gilligan has written the script and might be directing.
