Deadline reports that "that the two networks may have their roles reversed, with Netflix taking first window and AMC second".

And now for a little Breaking news.

You'll note that the word "theatrical" isn't getting tossed around here, so it seems all but guaranteed we'll only be watching the Breaking Bad movie (or the follow-up series, if that's the route they choose to go) via our televisions.

"Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad". It sounds like we'll be following Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), last seen driving like a bat out of hell after Walter White (Bryan Cranston) killed a bunch of white supremacists who were imprisoning Jesse and forcing him to make high-quality meth. Gilligan credited the streamer for its contribution to the show's success in his 2013 Emmy acceptance speech, saying that he thinks Netflix helped keep the show on the air.

While no details have been revealed yet about the plot, the movie's script is being written by Vince Gilligan, the show's creator, and it will most likely focus on Pinkman on the lam and starting out a new life. "Not only are we standing up here, I don't think our show would have even lasted beyond season two.It's a new era in television, and we've been very fortunate to reap the benefits".

Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White in Breaking Bad, also confirmed that a sequel flick was in the works. The streamer also gave one of its original film productions, Roma, a rare extended theatrical run; the film is now a front-runner for this month's Best Picture award at the Academy Awards. The prequel-ish show Better Call Saul has also received a ton of critical acclaim. "I can say and announce tonight, in front of your audience - exclusive announcement - that I can confirm that there is a Breaking Bad movie". In the movie, Pinkman, who's wrongfully kidnapped by perpetrators, manages to escape and sets out to live a free life.
