Emmy Award-winning actor Aaron Paul has addressed the rumoured Breaking Bad movie – telling fans that he would “love to do it”.
Although the film of the award-winning TV series is yet to be confirmed, showrunner Vince Gilligan said last year that he is planning a brand new movie that will have concrete ties to the same universe as Breaking Bad.
Speaking at the Sun Valley Film Festival, Paul, who starred as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad from 2008 to 2013, didn’t confirm whether he was involved in the project – but did say he’d be open to reprising the popular character.
“Rumours are funny – I once heard a rumour that I was being cast as Han Solo,” said the 39-year-old. “I haven’t heard anything about the Breaking Bad movie, but if there is one and it comes together I’d love to be part of it.
“If it were to happen, yes, I would love to do it.”
Paul went on to say that if the movie does go ahead, it should focus on Jesse.
“In case you haven’t caught up on the TV series, Walter dies, so… it has to star Jesse,” he said.
Towards the end of last year, Brian Cranston confirmed news of the film in an interview on The Dan Patrick Show. Cranston said he had not yet seen the script but had spoken to Gilligan about the film.
“There’s a question of whether we would even see Walter White in this movie,” Cranston told radio host Dan Patrick.
