The logline, reported by the Albuquerque Journal last fall, follows the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. Now THR confirms that the film is a sequel following Jesse and that the film will air first on Netflix before running on AMC, the network that originally carried Breaking Bad.

Neither Netflix nor AMC immediately responded to Mashable's request for comment. It sounds like we'll be following Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), last seen driving like a bat out of hell after Walter White (Bryan Cranston) killed a bunch of white supremacists who were imprisoning Jesse and forcing him to make high-quality meth.

She said Mrs May would bring her deal back to Parliament for a vote "as soon as the issue around the backstop has been sorted out".

The report suggests that the movie will actually flip the script on Breaking Bad's relationship with streaming. It will subsequently air on AMC - the home to Breaking Bad during its five-season TV run. Gilligan acknowledged the streamer's contribution in his acceptance speech for the series' first best drama series Emmy win in 2013. Deadline's report says it's still unknown if the project will air as one feature film, or be cut into episodes.

The as-yet-untitled Breaking Bad film will be written directed by Gilligan, who co-created the show's spin-off Better Call Saul (which has also received a viewership boost thanks to Netflix). That show has already been renewed for a fifth season. Gilligan will both write and direct the film, and he'll be joined by producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. The prequel-ish show Better Call Saul has also received a ton of critical acclaim. The streamer also gave one of its original film productions, Roma, a rare extended theatrical run; the film is now a front-runner for this month's Best Picture award at the Academy Awards. The movie will be a sequel to the events of Breaking Bad, which means it's unlikely we'd see Walter White again, but perhaps some other familiar faces could pop up.
