"Breaking Bad:The Movie"?
It’s within the realm of possibility, teases the show’s star, Bryan Cranston. When AMC and “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan reached an agreement earlier this year to extend and eventually end the addictive drama with two eight-episode seasons, Gilligan told Cranston that he "couldn’t imagine having enough story to fill 16 more episodes.”
But when we spoke to Cranston recently, he revealed that the narrative pendulum had now swung in the opposite direction.
“Vince feels that now we have too much story,” Cranston says, laughing. “We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes.”
Which leads Cranston to considering his character’s future beyond the next 16 hours of television.
“It’s not far-fetched,” Cranston says. “I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn’t know anything of how the show’s going to end. If it doesn’t end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he’s still alive, that is.”
The odds of White making it through the next two seasons alive remains iffy, Gilligan cautions. A teaser for the upcoming season shows the newly minted meth king rebuking strip mall attorney Saul Goodman for telling him “we’re done.”
