The man who played Walter White has confirmed that there will be a “Breaking Bad” movie. But will he be in it? Um, he says he isn’t sure and we find that a little hard to believe.
Bryan Cranston, who captured four Emmy Awards for his performance as the chemistry-teacher-turned-drug lord in the acclaimed AMC cable series, told Dan Patrick on “The Dan Patrick Show” that, like the rest of us, he’s pretty much clueless.
“Yes, there appears to be a movie version of ‘Breaking Bad,’ but honestly I have not even read the script,” he said. “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.”
Fans have been speculating about story lines and cast members since The Albuquerque Journal reported earlier this week that a “Breaking Bad” movie was in the works under the name “Greenbrier.”
The film, which will be written and directed by creator Vince Gilligan, will “follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom,” according to the log line published by the Journal.
That kidnapped man could be Walt’s former partner-in-crime Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), who was last seen busting free from his neo-Nazi kidnappers.
Cranston told Patrick that he would “absolutely” return to the character if called upon to do so.
Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad” prequel series “Better Call Saul” recently wrapped up its fourth season.
