For those who love the story of chemistry-professor-turned-meth-seller Walter White, as well as those who do not have the patience to get through the show's 62 episodes, there is some good news.
Two French filmmakers Lucas Stoll and Gaylor Morestin spent two years of "sleepless nights" editing the whole of Breaking Bad to prepare a two-hour long feature film called Breaking Bad - The Movie. They insist that their effort, which involved going through roughly 70 hours of footage, is not a fan film made up of favourite scenes. They began working on this endeavour to answer the question, "What if Breaking Bad was a film?"
In a statement on their website, they mention this:
"It's not only a fan-film, hitting the highlights of show in a home-made homage, but rather a re-imagining of the underlying concept itself, lending itself to full feature-length treatment. An alternative Breaking Bad, to be viewed with fresh eyes."
They describe the film as "a study project that became an all-consuming passion". At the end of the film, Stoll and Morestin thank the makers of Breaking Bad, and add a cheeky line telling people not to count on them for a film on Better Call Saul.
Breaking Bad ran for a total of five seasons. Directed by Vince Gilligan, it stars Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte and Bob Odenkirk.
