‘I’ve heard so many different things about [the movie], but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie. I can’t wait to see it.’
Odenkirk was actually amazed that the publication didn’t know about the production, which is reportedly set for a 2020 release.
‘I don’t know what people know and don’t know,’ he told THR, adding ‘I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot.’
He went on, saying: ‘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.’

Origin story: The movie will focus on Paul’s character Jesse Pinkman, a small-time methamphetamine user, manufacturer, and dealer who links up with Bryan Cranston’s Walter White as a business partner
Bryan Cranston, the man behind the iconic anti-hero Walter White, all but confirmed the movie while appearing on The Dan Patrick Show earlier this year.
Revealing that he’d ‘absolutely’ appear in spin-off he explained: ‘It’s a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale].
‘This idea, from what I’m told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey.’
What a character: Previous Breaking Bad offshoots include Better Call Saul and the Spanish language spin-off called Metástasis
This won’t be the first addition to the Breaking Bad universe.
Creator Vince Gilligan is also the brain behind Better Call Saul, which stars Odenkirk.
The series also had a Spanish language spin-off called Metástasis.
Breaking Bad ran for five seasons on AMC. During its time on the air the show won an impressive 16 Emmys.
