The upcoming Breaking Bad film looks like it’s definitely going to answer some questions or at least ease some minds as to what happened to Jesse after the series finale of the acclaimed television series. Heralded as one of the greatest television series of all time, the ending left things both unambiguous and ambiguous at the same time with lead character Walter White (spoiler alert), dying and Jesse Pinkman driving off away from the horrific scene.
The Breaking Bad film would follow “the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom” with this man being Jesse Pinkman after he drives off near the end of the series after beating Jack Welker’s gang. Walter White played wonderfully by Bryan Cranston could make an appearance via flashbacks or dream sequences especially since Cranston himself is pretty open to returning for the film. However, it looks like that may not be the case as Cranston may be too busy for it.
We know that filming would start this month and with this in mind, Cranston would have to put some time aside if he were to be a part of it… even if his scenes were to be brief. In an interview with Today, Cranston revealed that his Broadway schedule would go on for some time making it unlikely for him to be available to shoot anything for the film. He said:
“I’d love to do a Breaking Bad movie, but I’m doing Broadway now and that’s gonna go until March at least.”
Dammit Broadway! Perhaps series creator Vince Gilligan doesn’t even have anything for Walt and would rather focus on Jesse which would be better if you’re looking to really make this worthwhile. A Breaking Bad film may not be something everyone wants but things are looking good with its spin-off Better Call Saul so maybe these characters have a place for the big screen too.
