Bob Odenkirk, the actor best known for playing the role of Saul Goodman in hit television series Breaking Bad, has confirmed the surprising news that production for the upcoming film is already complete.
Vince Gilligan, the show’s original creator, confirmed in November that a two-hour film was in the pipeline but failed to offer any specific details about the direction the feature will take.
The film, which will be distributed by Netflix, has been given the working title of Greenbrier and will serve as a continuation of the television series Breaking Bad. While little is known about the film, a longline for the film details a story that “follows the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.”
With filming having commenced in New Mexico, speculation has been rife about which direction the film will take and whether or not Aaron Paul reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman and, of course, if Bryan Cranston would return as Walter White.
With very little to go off, actor Odenkirk has let slip that the new film is already in post-production: “I’ve heard so many different things about it, but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie,” Odenkirk said in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I can’t wait to see it. I don’t know what people know and don’t know.”
He added: “I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Odenkirk also confirmed that he’s is filming the fifth season of Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul: “Season five is just everything’s on fire, and it’s just burning down around us,” he said.
