Some wonderful news has arrived for fans of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad! And while the storyline has is shrouded in secrecy, Deadline is reporting that the movie will air on both Netflix and AMC, with the streaming giant likely getting exclusivity for a while. It sounds like we'll be following Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), last seen driving like a bat out of hell after Walter White (Bryan Cranston) killed a bunch of white supremacists who were imprisoning Jesse and forcing him to make high-quality meth.
Variety has confirmed with sources that the feature length follow-up to the critically-acclaimed AMC series will stream on Netflix prior to airing on the cable network.
The report suggests that the movie will actually flip the script on Breaking Bad's relationship with streaming.
Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable's request for comment.
This release situation shouldn't be much of a surprise, considering the success that Breaking Bad found on Netflix. That show has already been renewed for a fifth season. In the past, he has directed a number of episodes of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and The X-Files, so we expect big things from this.
"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". This latest rumor follows up on the rumor previously reported by the same outlet that there's a two-hour Breaking Bad movie in the works with the original show's creator Vince Gilligan at the helm. "I can say and announce tonight, in front of your audience - exclusive announcement - that I can confirm that there is a Breaking Bad movie".
