The Hollywood Reporter also says that Gilligan will direct the film, which will follow the escape of a kidnapped man (Pinkman) and his fight for freedom.

This would be an interesting reversal of the way that the series first aired, with each season dropping episodes weekly in a standard broadcast TV model before heading to Netflix for the world's binging pleasure roughly a year after the conclusion of each season.

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. No details were provided on when theBreaking Bad sequel will premiere, and AMC and Netflix did not provide comment on the movie.

A little is known about the Breaking Bad movie. "Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two", he said.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said in 2013 during his best drama acceptance speech at the Emmys that the show thrived thanks to Netflix. "I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two [without it]". He's spent the last few years overseeing spin-off show Better Call Saul (which, heretical opinion forthcoming, is nearly definitely better than Breaking Bad), and he's now deep in production on a Breaking Bad spin-off movie.

The upcoming film, which was first reported late previous year, is a sequel written by show creator Vince Gilligan, centered around Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul, which now has four seasons.
