(Newser) – We may not have seen the last of Breaking Bad. Series creator Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour film linked to the original AMC show, arguably one of the best of all time. Per the Albuquerque Journal, the film set to begin production in New Mexico mid-month under the working title Greenbrier "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom," though little else is known. Gilligan is reportedly writing the script and may also direct, per the Hollywood Reporter, while Variety notes it's unclear if actors from the series will star or even if the film is intended for TV or the big screen. Meanwhile, a Guardian columnist suggests it's a "a terrible, cynical ploy." (There's already a Breaking Bad prequel.)
