Breaking Bad Movie With Aaron Paul Is Coming to Netflix & It’s Just What We Need

As unbelievable as it is, Breaking Bad ended nearly 6 years ago. Yet, people are still talking about it.

As The Guardian points out, the incredible success of the show is most likely due to both craft and creativity. After all, its producer Vince Gilligan really knew how to keep the audience on its toes.

But Breaking Bad also rose to fame thanks to Netflix who purchased its streaming rights at a critical moment in the show’s history. Now the Breaking Bad movie is about to hit screens again and Netflix will have priority over others.

However, very little is known about the the movie’s production and the story line. It’s believed to pick up at the show’s fifth season finale and follow the journey of Jesse Pinkman.

Some even speculate Walter White will make an appearance, despite his fate in the show’s final episode.

The phenomenal success of Breaking Bad.

If you’re a fan of the series you might still remember its first-ever episode and how misleading the portrayal of Walter White seemed.

In the beginning, his actions created a sort of light and humorous impression of the show.

But then Walter killed a man and it changed the whole idea of what we thought the show would be like.

The Guardian believes this “tonal trick” is one of the reasons the show gained so much popularity over the next few years.

And it’s just one of the tricks that producer Vince Gilligan used during the 5 seasons of the show.

He especially liked to play with the way we see the main characters.

By the end of the show Walter was clearly not the simple man we thought he was when watching the pilot episode. He was a killer.

Yet, somehow, we all hoped he would survive.

Breaking Bad was first released at a time when cable TV was at its peak.

But in many other countries which have completely different TV broadcasting structures, the show only gained watchers when Netflix came into play, The Guardian says.

In the UK, for example, you could only catch the show on FX and Five USA.

But by the end of the show everyone had already heard of Breaking Bad by word of mouth, and so Netflix used this demand to break through in the UK market.

Now the TV industry has turned upside down.

Cable TV is struggling, while online streaming platforms, particularly Netflix, have taken over the industry.

Apart from successful technical strategies, Breaking Bad also grew its audience thanks to pure creativity.

At the time of the show’s pilot episode release a story revolving around an antihero protagonist wasn’t all that unusual anymore.

But Gilligan decided to go a different way.

For example, in his Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, he works with an amoral lawyer, analyzing the concept of managed disappointment, rather than the will to power.

The Guardian says, Better Call Saul “tells the story of people who wish they could become something else, but can’t.”

The show is similar to Breaking Bad in that it also emphasizes “the strengths and tensions of personal relationships.”

So, as The Guardian concludes, the show gained success because of its clever use of both craft and creativity.

“But above all else it stood out because, however surreal the surroundings, in its conflicted, complicated characters it was true to reality.”

Now a Breaking Bad movie is happening and the show’s two networks are racing to be the first to host it.

Deadline reports that even though Breaking Bad was on AMC for years before it reached Netflix, it was Netflix that saved the show.

It’s yet to be confirmed, but it seems that this time Netflix has got priority.

This means that we’ll get to see the upcoming movie on Netflix before it airs on AMC.

When Breaking Bad won an Emmy for “Best Drama Series” in 2013, Gilligan thanked Netflix for its contribution.

“I think Netflix kept us on the air,” Gilligan said at the Emmys. “Not only are we standing up here, I don’t think our show would have even lasted beyond Season 2.”

“It’s a new era in television, and we’ve been very fortunate to reap the benefits.”

When Breaking Bad received critical acclaim, Deadline says, AMC and Sony TV quickly signed a contract for the show’s prequel Better Call Saul.

The prequel is doing well and will release its fifth season later this year.

Now that the prequel has gained critical acclaim as well, Sony TV gave Netflix permission to stream it, The Hollywood Reporter says.

Gilligan signed the contract for the Breaking Bad movie last July.

But The Hollywood Reporter says the deal is worth “less than $50 million as Gilligan is not in the same volume space as producers like Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, who both signed nine-figure deals with Netflix.”

The film will be especially beneficial for Sony TV.

The studio “has been fighting an uphill battle in an era when ownership has become increasingly important.”

Little has been revealed about the plot of the movie, but it’s believed to follow Breaking Bad’s character Jesse Pinkman.

It’s said to be a feature-length film that will show Aaron Paul’s character’s journey after the end of the season 5 finale.

According to VICE, rumor has it that Walter White will be back too.

But that seems unlikely, considering what happened to him in the show finale.

The movie will be written and directed by Vince Gilligan.

He’ll work together with producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, who both contributed to the show and its prequel.

The film will be shot as a feature.

But it’s not yet known whether it will be aired as a film or spread over a few episodes, according to Deadline.

It’s likely the film is already in production.

In November, Albuquerque Journal reported that a mysterious project “Greenbrier” had been listed as starting production.

The journal also reported a possible plot line.

The story is said to follow “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”

It’s possible that this kidnapped man is Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman.

In November, Bryan Cranston, known in the show as Walter White, confirmed the movie was happening but he hadn’t seen the script yet.

He talked to The Dan Patrick Show.

“It’s a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these story lines that were left open [in the series finale],” Cranston said, as reported by The Independent.

“This idea, from what I’m told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey.”

“I don’t know if there’s an appearance — flashbacks, flash forwards — 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.”

Gilligan has also dropped some hints on what the movie could be about.

Slashfilm reports, “Gilligan once tossed around some ideas about what might have happened to Jesse after the finale.”

“My personal feeling is that he got away,” Gilligan said in 2013.

“But the most likely thing, as negative as this sounds, is that they’re going to find this kid’s fingerprints all over this lab and they’re going to find him within a day or a week or a month.”

“And he’s still going to be on the hook for the murder of two federal agents.”

“But yeah, even though that’s the most likely outcome, the way I see it is that he got away and got to Alaska, changed his name, and had a new life.”

“You want that for the kid. He deserves it,” he added, according to Slashfilm.

The release date of the movie hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if it really started shooting only in November, it’s unlikely we’ll see it before the end of 2019.
