First few details about the reported “Breaking Bad” movie have surfaced online. The film is said to be made for TV, which means that it will not be released in theatres. More details can be expected when the actual filming begins in the coming weeks.

According to a report by SlashFilm, the upcoming “Breaking Bad” movie will be a sequel that will be set after the explosive events of the finale episode of the TV show. The plot will focus on Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who was last seen driving away to freedom after losing everything and everyone in his life.

The series creator Vince Gilligan is reportedly writing the script of the movie and he will also serve as the executive producer. The movie is reportedly being made through Gilligan’s deal with Sony TV. The report notes that there are no plans to release the film in theatres. It will only air on TV.

Paul is reportedly confirmed to reprise his role as the meth-dealer. Since the lead of the film is Jesse, the report suggests that it will give some closure to the fans of the character. Perhaps Jesse will finally find peace in his life.

It remains to be seen if Walter White (Bryan Cranston) will be back. Fans will not blame Jesse if he wants nothing more to do with his former drugs producing partner. Details about the film are currently being kept under wraps, and even the logline is brief and very vague, but it’s enough to reveal that it will be a story about Jesse.

The other big crossover for the film may be with the hit spin-off series “Better Call Saul.” It remains to be seen what familiar characters from the expanded “Breaking Bad” universe will make the cut in the film.

Filming of the “Breaking Bad” film is set to begin in New Mexico soon.
