Intriguing news for fans of Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul” surfaced in the midst of a discussion Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con marking the 10-year anniversary of “Breaking Bad.”
The panel included actors Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, along with Gilligan, and while some of the news, or non-news, was about Cranston’s lack of interest in revisiting “Breaking Bad,” which is already well-known, Gilligan snuck in an apparent headline about possible appearances by Paul and Cranston on the prequel.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Gilligan said he would love to see the two actors — who played meth-making partners Walter White (Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Paul) on “Breaking Bad” — in the prequel, which centers on shady lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk.
Gilligan, who created “Breaking Bad” and co-created “Better Call Saul,” is quoted by The Post saying: “We don’t want to jerk folks around. But we would be sorely remiss if these characters didn’t appear in the show before it ended.”
The report adds that any such appearance is not expected to happen this season.
The Post report also notes: “When a fan asked if ‘Breaking Bad’ would ever become a feature film, Cranston quickly responded, ‘No,’ but Gilligan said, ‘Anything is possible.’”
