“Greenbrier,” a film sequel to HBO drama “Breaking Bad” focusing on a man who escaped after being kidnapped and his subsequent path to freedom, will begin production later this month and continue into February. The film from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, is expected to follow the next steps of Jesse Pinkman, the ex-pupil of Bryan Cranston’s Walter White. Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, was kept hostage by neo-Nazis in the final episodes of the show before Cranston’s character freed him in the series finale.
Gilligan will write the script, executive produce and possibly direct. “Breaking Bad” and prequel series “Better Call Saul” executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are also said to be attached to the film project, which is said to follow the escape of Jesse Pinkman and his quest for freedom. No casting has been announced.
