When it rains, it pours. It’s been less than 24 hours since news about a potential Breaking Bad movie hit, and since then, we’ve been getting little tidbits here and there about what the film could entail and who will be returning. As it stands, the story looks to follow Jesse Pinkman either during his time in captivity of the neo-Nazis or after (though probably a bit of both). So what does this mean for Bryan Cranston?
Well, given that the last episode of Breaking Bad saw the death of Walter White (though some have argued that he could still be alive), it doesn’t seem likely. But in a world where retconning is a thing, you never know. So what does Bryan Cranston have to say about this? He recently showed up on the Dan Patrick Show, where he started out by seemingly confirming the film:
“Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but I honestly haven’t even read the script. I have not gotten the script. I have not read the script… So there’s a question of whether or not we’ll even see Walter White in this movie. Oh…Think about that one (evil laughter).”
But if Walter White were to have a role in the story, would he join?
“I would, absolutely. If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, then sure, absolutely. He’s a genius…”
“This idea, from what I’m told, gets into … at least a couple of the characters that were not completed as far as their journey.”
So, in what capacity could Walter White be used? Well, technically if this takes place during Jesse’s captivity, there is some leeway there. Plus, as much as I’d hate it, if they retconned his death so that he ended up living, there is also that possibility. However, seeing as Cranston doesn’t seem to know much about the film, that seems unlikely.
But what do you think? Would you want Walter White to show up, and if so, would you be okay with him having lived through the events of the last episode of Breaking Bad? Let us know your thoughts down below!
