Does Anyone Even Want A Breaking Bad Movie?

These days when people like TV shows and those TV shows end, the people who liked those TV shows demand a movie version of those TV shows. Duh. We all know that because it’s basically the only thing we ever talk about. But generally this demand comes when fans feel as though the TV show was canceled prematurely, or had more to give them — when they feel like it was left open-ended, let’s say. So why IN GOODNESS’S NAME would anyone be clamoring (if anyone even is, besides Bryan Cranston, Vince Gilligan, and BLOGS) for a Breaking Bad movie, when we’re still TWO SUMMERS AWAY from it even ending? And when Vince Gilligan had his entire life, basically, to come up with an appropriate ending? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY? Why, Bryan Cranston, in an interview with the LA Times?

“Vince feels that now we have too much story,” Cranston says, laughing. “We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes.”

Which leads Cranston to considering his character’s future beyond the next 16 hours of television.

“It’s not far-fetched,” Cranston says. “I wouldn’t mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn’t know anything of how the show’s going to end. If it doesn’t end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he’s still alive, that is.”

Ugh, BOOOOOO. I don’t know what you guys think, which is why I’m asking, but even though I love Breaking Bad VERY MUCH, I do not want a movie about what Walter White is up to just because Vince Gilligan says he can think of a few more things for Walter White to do. Like, I’m sure we can ALL think of something to make a Breaking Bad movie about even if Walter White dies. “Walt White is a ghost in Heaven and he meets Gus there and at first their enemies, because of you know what, but God pairs them together to solve Heaven crimes and over time they learn to love each other like brothers. Also Jesse is back on Earth and he marries a girl named Kelly.” THE END. We can all do it, but that doesn’t mean we want or need it. Right? Can’t we be content with how Vince Gilligan is going to end the TV show, which will probably be perfect? What do you think? Am I wrong? (No.) (I don’t think so.)
