A new project that’s closely tied to AMC’s acclaimed series “Breaking Bad,” which wrapped in 2013, is about to begin shooting in Albuquerque, N.M.
The Albuquerque Journal reports that the new production, a movie called “Greenbrier,” is scheduled to start production in mid-November. It is unknown whether the project, from “Breaking Bad” creator and “Better Call Saul” co-creator Vince Gilligan, is headed to theaters or television.
The project is being referred to as “the ‘Breaking Bad’ movie,” even though the film office in Albuquerque declined to confirm whether it is a “Breaking Bad” film. The report notes that “a source close to the project confirmed the production.”
The movie’s logline indicates that it tracks the escape of a kidnapped man, the paper reports. It is reportedly the first project for Gilligan since he signed a three-year pact with Sony Pictures Television in July.
“Details on which characters will be returning from the TV series to the film have not been released,” the paper notes.
