In a recent episode of In Studio with The Hollywood Reporter, Bob Odenkirk — who plays Saul Goodman in the hit Netflix series Better Call Saul — revealed that the long-awaited Breaking Bad movie has already been shot.
News of the full-length movie first came to light at the beginning of this year, when Deadline reported that Netflix and AMC would be reviving the beloved series starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in movie form. The story is said to revolve around Paul’s character Jesse Pinkman after the events of the series’ conclusion, and would also star Heisenberg himself, potentially in flashbacks. Since the announcement, Cranston and Paul had both taken to Instagram to tease a special project the duo were working on, but to many fans’ dismay, it turned out not to be a Breaking Bad movie but a new mezcal brand.
Now, reinvigorating fans’ hopes, Odenkirk confirmed in an interview that the Breaking Bad movie is indeed happening, and has in fact already been shot. “I’ve heard so many different things about it, but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie. I can’t wait to see it…I don’t know what people know and don’t know,” the actor said. “I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
There’s no word yet from either AMC or Netflix about the upcoming movie, so fans of Breaking Bad or its spinoff series Better Call Saul should definitely stay tuned as more news is set to surface.
For more entertainment news, director Todd Phillips has already said that a Joker sequel could happen.
