The Emmy-winning AMC drama Breaking Bad is getting another franchise expansion, with a film that has been quietly been put together for a mid-November through early February shoot in New Mexico. According to The Hollywood Reporter, creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour film, though details are so scarce at this stage in the process we honestly don't know much of anything yet. Sadly, there's no word on whether or not original stars, such as Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris or Aaron Paul, will return for the new story.

The Journal also reports the title as "Greenbriar", though whether that's the final title is in the air as well.
Gilligan, who also created the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, inked a three-year pact with Sony Pictures Television over the summer amid a hyper-competitive environment in the industry for proven showrunners.More news: Indonesia air crash: Boeing may issue safety warning on 737 Max models
Insiders told THR that Gilligan will have full oversight of the projects, as he'd be the screenwriter, executive producer and could be the director, as well. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul producing alums Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are linked to the project, as well. The plot involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom" (does that sound like Jesse Pinkman to anyone?), and production is set to begin in (where else?) New Mexico next month.
