The popular television movie "Breaking Bad" is returning to film format, said show star Bryan Cranston on Wednesday, but it is unclear if his iconic character Walter White will return.
The series, which ran from 2008 until 2013, told the story of White, a high school science teacher who responds to a terminal cancer diagnosis by turning into a powerful drug lord.
It is one of the most commented shows in the history of TV and has won a total of 16 Emmys, including four best awards for actors for Cranston and two Golden Globes.
"There seems to be a film version of" Breaking Bad ", but honestly I have not even read the script," said Cranston, 62, at The Dan Patrick Show, a national radio program.
"So we have to wonder if we would have seen Walter White in this movie or not."
Warning Spoiler: White died at the end of the series, broadcast in the United States on the AMC cable network.
Nonetheless, Cranston said he would be "absolutely" interested in bringing White back in case the creator Vince Gilligan asked him to do it.
"He's a genius," said Cranston. "I'm thrilled because it's" Breaking Bad. "It was the greatest professional period of my life and I can not wait to see those people, even though I've just come to see me."
Cranston, nominated for Best Actor in 2016 for his work in the Hollywood biographical film Trumbo, said he believed the film would offer fans a bit of closure for "at least a couple" of characters.
Several Hollywood media outlets said the project title was "Greenbrier".
The New Mexico Film Office has confirmed that a film of the same name, produced by Sony, will start filming later this month and will end in February. The series has also been shot in the southwestern state.
The announcement came a few days after AMC declared that another of its hugely popular series, "The Walking Dead," would also have a feature film.
The production of a film by "Downton Abbey" has already begun.
The "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston, seen here in Los Angeles in August 2018, says that a film version of the series is being worked on
