This week saw it announced that a Breaking Bad movie is in the works, and now Bryan Cranston responds.
Cranston played Walter White, aka Heisenberg, the science teacher turned meth cook and drug lord.
“Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but honestly I have not even read the script,” Bryan Cranston told The Dan Patrick Show. “I have not gotten the script, I have not read the script. And so, there’s the question of whether or not we’ll even see Walter White in this movie. Ohhhhh! Think about that one.”
Details for the movie include that it is a sequel to the series following the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom, which is Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.
Bryan Cranston says he would be up for returning as Walter White and acknowledged that “there’s a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left on. And this idea, from what I’m told, gets into those — at least a couple of the characters who were not completed as far as their journey.”
Bryan Cranston did confirm that creator Vince Gilligan reached out to him about the project, but he doesn't know if “there is an appearance, or what kind of appearance — flashbacks, flash-forwards, I have no clue. But I’m excited about it because it’s Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life, and I can’t wait to see all those people again, even if I just come by to visit.”
