Are you sure about that? Jackson didn’t even know his likeness was going to be used before Ultimates came out.


#6177

It’s what Mark and Bryan were saying at the time, IIRC.


#6178

Interesting. I don’t think I ever heard that one.


#6179

Yup. Looks pretty good, too.

If SyFy manage to adapt this like they did Happy, it should turn out well.

I enjoyed the original, but it was pretty terrible at times.


#6181

The CW?
Pass.

I really enjoyed the original. I even read the two sequel books.
But yeah, it could be as horrible for every peak it reached.

The CW though…hellll no.

Over the course of five incredible seasons, Breaking Bad put its cast of characters through the wringer. But no one suffered quite like Aaron Paul ‘s Jesse Pinkman, the meth-dealing loser who lost everything (and everyone) that mattered to him simply because he was unfortunate enough to enter the orbit of Walter White.

And his suffering isn’t over yet. /Film has learned that the newly announced Breaking Bad movie will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying finale.

Last night, we learned that series creator Vince Gilligan was writing and executive producing a Breaking Bad movie, although it is unknown if he will also direct. It was also suggested that this will be a television movie, as it is being make through Gilligan’s deal with Sony TV, who produced the original show (which aired on AMC). There was even the briefest of brief loglines: the movie would “[track] the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”

And yes, Breaking Bad fans, you put two and two together correctly: we have confirmed that the kidnapped man is Jesse Pinkman and the movie will follow his escape from Albuquerque following the bloody events of the series finale. Naturally, Aaron Paul is set to reprise the role, which won him three Emmy awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

I’m down for it.
Should be a TV movie instead though, really.


#6185

No. Just no. Jesses story ended perfectly. Don’t do any more. Let perfection be.

My guess is Aaron Paul honestly needs the work. But this feels like a movie no one asked for.


#6186

Did it?
I mean, he escaped but he is still on the hook for pretty much everything, and his life is in shambles.

There’s definite story meat there.


#6187

It says it is.


#6188

Ohhh…every other article and post I’ve seen on this says “feature film”.
That threw me off.

Alright, still in.


#6189

Paul’s in the next season of Westworld, and is a regular in one of the dozens of TV shows Apple is apparently making. He’s fine.


#6190

Wow, he must really be hurting.


#6191

I thought Better Call Saul was a questionable idea.

Then I saw it.

I’m willing to give Gilligan the credit to be able to make this work.


#6192

Even the greatest creators sometimes need a hand on their shoulder telling them to stop.


#6193

I’ll have to agree.
Mainly because I dropped BCS after season 1 and I felt very much the same way.

So this actually does make me somewhat nervous/cautious about this project.
But…some hope.


#6194

That should be a great fit.

He is also a producer and voice actor on Bojack Horseman.
