Breaking Bad The Movie? Creator Vince Gilligan Clears Up Rumors


Breaking Bad came to a breathtaking conclusion on Sunday (September 2, 2012) with just eight hours of the drama left to air next summer before the whole thing comes to an end. Though Bryan Cranston 's Walt White has now dug himself into a deep blood-filled hole from which he couldn't possibly escape - fans are still anxious to discover what becomes of their favourite anti-hero.
Series creator Vince Gilligan attempted to whet the appetite of the diehards in a conference call with reports following Sunday's finale. Though careful not to spoil the final eight episodes, Gilligan gave some intriguing answers, especially concerning whether Walt will finally get his comeuppance. When asked by Entertainment Weekly whether his lead character will be punished, he said, "He doesn't have to be [punished]. Someone in real life is getting away with murder as we speak. He can get away with the whole thing. Having said that, how satisfying would that be? It's a strange show. I'm very proud of it, but you find yourself very often rooting for a person that you should cross the street to avoid. He's a bad guy". The finale hinted that the one-time family man was now done with his newfound life of crime in the meth business, though Gilligan wasn't so convinced and revealed that he is yet to tie up the concluding episodes saying, "We can either take him at his word or not . I tend to believe, personally, he was telling the truth when her told [Skyler] that. Have we seen him cooking his last batch? We're still working out the final eight episodes". One subject on just about every Breaking Bad fan's lips as of late has been the possibility of a movie, though Gilligan was unequivocal when quizzed on the possibility of a big-screen adaptation, saying, "There's talk of a movie - none of that is remotely on our radar . We now have the freedom to dispense with the timid storytelling we've been doing so far".
The final eight episodes of the show will re-join Walt around 10-12 months from the most recent episode. As for his plans for the very final instalment of the award winning show, Gilligan observed, "The most dangerous thing is to come up with an ending that [you think] pleases the widest swath of people . It makes you think about the old baseball joke that the last batter to strike out is to blame for the team's entire loss".
