Could Walter White’s story come to an end on the big screen?
That’s the Breaking Bad buzz following comments made by the show’s star Bryan Cranston.
Earlier this year series creator Vince Gilligan told Cranston that he “couldn’t imagine having enough story to fill 16 more episodes.”
Now the opposite appears to be true, with Cranston telling LA Times:
“Vince feels that now we have too much story,” Cranston says, laughing. “We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes.”
So, a movie? According to Cranston “it’s not far-fetched.” He says:
“I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn’t know anything of how the show’s going to end. Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he’s still alive, that is.”
Of course, this shouldn’t be taken as confirmation; it remains to be seen whether Breaking Bad will continue on any medium after the final 16 episodes, and, as Cranston notes, whether Walter White will still be alive to be a part of it. What we do know with more certainty is that Walter will continue his ‘evolution’ into the villain of the tale in the final chapters of the AMC serial. Gilligan says:
“We can look forward to Walt’s ego growing by leaps and bounds for having killed Gus Fring. To this point, Walt’s been able to lie to himself and reason that he’s done all these terrible things for his family. But that’s a lie that’s harder and harder to maintain as this upcoming season progresses.”
