As THR reports, Gilligan will begin writing the script, and there's word that he may act as one of the film's executive producers and the film's director. It is also unknown if the film will be a prequel like the AMC spin-off series, "Better Call Saul".
It looks like there may be similar plans in the works for another AMC series: Breaking Bad.
According to the outlet, the movie "will be a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying finale".
The film will begin shooting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the setting for the "Breaking Bad" series, in mid-November and extend through early February, according to the Albuquerque Journal, which broke the news of the project.More news: Fossil Sport Smartwatch debuts as second Snapdragon Wear 3100 watch

"Breaking Bad" revolved around White, a stressed high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer.
For example, a "Downton Abbey" film is due for theatrical release in September 2019, featuring many original cast members, while just this week HBO added "The Walking Dead" to a telefilm project slate that already included "Deadwood".
The gritty drama pulled no punches, killing off key players and charting the moral tailspin of Cranston's character, Walter White.
"A Breaking Bad film can go in any number of directions, but as long as it stays true to the established themes of Breaking Bad, I think fans will be satisfied by whatever Vince Gilligan comes up with". Let us know your thoughts down below!
