A whole host of returning favourites, including Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, are ready to feature in the upcoming feature-length Breaking Bad movie.

Creator Vince Gilligan is said to be behind the project, which Walter White actor Cranston has previously outlined as the key to him featuring in any fresh work around the hit AMC drama.

Film website Revenge Of The Fans has the down low on the title, currently given the codename Greenbrier, stating that other characters set to appear include Jonathan Banks (Mike), Jesse Plemons (Todd), Charles Baker (Skinny Pete), Matt Jones (Badger), Robert Forster (Ed, aka The Disappearer), Tess Harper (Mrs. Pinkman), and Kevin Rankin (Kenny).

In addition, Krysten Ritter, who plays Jane Margolis, is due to appear which (spoiler alert) is a surprise as the girlfriend of Paul’s character Jesse Pinkman died in the first series.

In the same vein, Cranston’s presence in the two-hour film raises questions as to how the plot will unfold given that it is set to take place in the immediate aftermath of White’s death and Jesse’s escape in the final ever episode.

Characters from prequel spinoff Better Call Saul are also due to appear, raising hopes that the movie will tie up the remaining plotlines and character arcs of those who haven’t yet been afforded that privilege.

“If Vince Gilligan asked me to do it, sure, absolutely,” Cranston said on reprising his role in the title on The Dan Patrick Show last November. “He’s a genius.

“This idea, from what I was told, gets into at least a couple of the characters who were not completed as far as their journey. I can’t wait to see all those people again… even if I just come by to visit.”
