Aaron Paul may be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman

Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman in the movie, THR reports. It is being written by Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan, and given that AMC has usa streaming rights only, it is unclear where it will air in other areas of the world.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news and also says that Netflix will screen the film first and then it will air on U.S. network AMC, a reverse of how Breaking Bad was first shown.

Inside sources are reporting that the feature film continuation of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad will drop first on Netflix before heading to AMC, the network that aired all five seasons of the iconic series. Gilligan acknowledged the streamer's contribution in his acceptance speech for the series' first best drama series Emmy win in 2013.

Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable's request for comment.

"I think Netflix kept us on the air", he said back then.

"Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad". "Not only are we standing up here, I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond Season 2".

Vince Gilligan will write and executive produce the project with collaborators Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein.

Per the New Mexico Film Office, a film titled "Greenbrier" was scheduled to film in Albuquerque from November to mid-February.

Though it hasn't been confirmed officially, Revenge of The Fans claim to have seen the official cast list, and states Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as antihero Walter White, alongside Todd, Badger and Skinny Pete. "But I honestly have not even read the script ... there's a question of whether or not we would even see Walter White in this movie", Cranston said. It was followed by the prequel series Better Call Saul, focused on Bob Odenkirk's small-time lawyer Jimmy McGill, which just got renewed for a fifth season.
