Are Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul teasing the Breaking Bad movie?
While most fans were content with the conclusion of the acclaimed AMC crime drama, many have been clamoring for the return of beloved drug kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and partner Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from Breaking Bad. After a follow-up film with Paul set to star was confirmed in February, anticipation has been an all-time high and everyone has been waiting for further details on who else will appear in the film, and now it appears the two stars may be teasing both of their returns for the project!
Paul and Cranston both took to Twitter this morning, sharing the same photo of two donkeys with the caption “Soon,” posting the tweet at the exact same time.
Given the film is set to continue Jesse’s story following the exhilarating series finale, Paul is already confirmed to be attached to the film, but with a lot of ambiguity surrounding Walter’s fate as he was left bleeding out from his gun wound, Cranston’s involvement has been a thing of mystery. The actor has repeatedly stated he would love to return to the role and series should a proper opportunity appear. Seeing as the two posted the same image, however, it could mean we’ll get to see the blue meth dealing duo share the screen again. Or perhaps we’re all asses for speculating.
The Emmy Award-winning series aired on AMC before seasons were later made available on Netflix. Vince Gilligan credited the streamer for its contribution to the show’s success in his 2013 Emmy acceptance speech, saying that he thinks Netflix helped keep the show on the air.
Whether this film will be a prequel involving Bryan Cranston’s deceased Walter White or Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman (who was kidnapped by Jack Welker’s white supremacist gang in the final season) remains unclear. It could also be focused on Jesse rebuilding his life in the wake of White’s death and being freed from the cartels.
AMC’s Breaking Bad ended its critically acclaimed five-season run with a finale that brought in a series record 10.3 million viewers. It was followed by the prequel series Better Call Saul, focused on Bob Odenkirk’s small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill, which just got renewed for a fifth season.
The Breaking Bad movie began shooting in New Mexico in March.
