“Never underestimate Vince Gilligan”: Bryan Cranston Returning for Walter White Movie after El Camino? Actor Hints Heisenberg’s Second Coming

Bryan Cranston Returning for Walter White Movie after El Camino? Actor Hints Heisenberg's Second Coming

In the age of prequels and sequels, it’s pretty common to witness certain popular IPs pumping out a plethora of spin-offs in order to capitalize on their popularity, diminishing their legacy in the process. However, Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, has been immune to this, as the two other projects in the Breaking Bad universe only enhanced the overall narrative.

And while it seems every loose end has been tied up, with Better Call Saul and El Camino concluding Saul and Jesse’s storyline, Heisenberg hasn’t ruled out the possibility of the universe’s expansion.

Bryan Cranston Made Hopeful Remarks About Walter White’s Future

After initially finishing his iconic run as Walter White aka Heisenberg back in 2013, earning his sixth Emmy win for his portrayal of the character, Cranston eventually reprised his role in 2019’s El Camino. And some years later, the Your Honor Star once again reprised the role for Better Call Saul‘s final season, so it makes sense why Bryan Cranston isn’t ruling out the possibility of playing the character once again.

“I never underestimate Vince Gilligan,” Cranston said. “I thought when we were saying like on April 3, just a little while ago, that 10 years earlier was our last production day on Breaking Bad… 10 years ago. I thought when I was saying my tearful goodbyes to everybody that that was it. Then El Camino came up…  And then Better Call Saul came up… and then PopCorners commercial came up.”

While the possibility of Walter White’s return seems unlikely, if Vince Gilligan eventually comes up with something meaningful, which he always does, Cranston assures, “I’d listen”.

Heisenberg Stands in Support of Writers and Screen Actors

Although fans would give anything to witness another glimpse of Bryan Cranston’s iconic Walter White, it surely isn’t going to happen anytime soon, following the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike. And the Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul team, including Bryan Cranston, joined forces to urge Hollywood studios to resume negotiations, while also making a strong pitch against the use of AI.

“We are here in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters who are affected by this (strike)… We are looking for an equitable contract. Something that allows working actors to pay their bills, buy food for their families. This is a watershed moment,” said Cranston. “This contract must have a sentence that will state ‘actors will be human beings’. And the same thing with the writers’ guild contract — ‘It will be written by a human being’.”

Although it does appear that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have done everything they could with the Breaking Bad universe, you never know what Gilligan may come up with next.
