Deadline reports that "that the two networks may have their roles reversed, with Netflix taking first window and AMC second".
The Breaking Bad movie is reportedly headed to Netflix.
Netflix and AMC have yet to comment on the report. Gilligan credited the streamer for its contribution to the show's success in his 2013 Emmy acceptance speech, saying that he thinks Netflix helped keep the show on the air.
A Breaking Bad movie starring Aaron Paul as Jesse will be coming to Netflix and AMC, according to unnamed sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. Not only are we standing up here [with the Emmy], I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two. Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will direct and executive produce the film alongside franchise collaborators Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. 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.
I hear the script is being shot as a feature though it has not been determined yet how it will air, as a film or cut into episodes.
You'll note that the word "theatrical" isn't getting tossed around here, so it seems all but guaranteed we'll only be watching the Breaking Bad movie (or the follow-up series, if that's the route they choose to go) via our televisions. Bryan Cranston has previously said he's unsure if there's a role for him in the film, but that he's interested in being involved if there is. Production is believed to be wrapping up this month in New Mexico.
We don't know all that much about it just yet, but we do know that the movie is called Greenbriar, and the plot involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".
