Vince Gilligan is taking Breaking Bad to the big screens. The series creator is working on a feature film that will explore what happened to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after the events in the series finale. It will be exciting to see what Gilligan comes up with, yet many fans are unhappy about his decision to start a new chapter.

Details are slim about what the movie will entail, but continuing Jesse's narrative makes sense. After all, we never found out what happened to Jesse after he escaped his imprisonment in the finale.

While Jesse's story may not entice some fans, Better Call Saul proves that Gilligan has the creative chops to continue the franchise. Whether or not Gilligan and his team pulls it off, of course, is another matter.

According to Birth Movies Death , Paul is returning to reprise his role as Walter White's (Bryan Cranston) sidekick. Gilligan has not revealed how many other Breaking Bad characters will appear in the movie, but casting announcements should be made soon. Production for the film is scheduled to start in December in New Mexico.

Fans have already taken to social media to voice their opinions on the Breaking Bad film, and not all of the reactions are good.

Some fans were a little confused by the announcement and did not know how they felt about the project.

Others were doubtful that Gilligan and his team could come up with anything that wouldn't ruin the original show.

"They better not ruin it! Don’t mess with one of the best shows ever. #BreakingBad," one fan shared on Twitter .

Not everyone was disappointed by the news. Many fans expressed their excitement about the movie and said they cannot wait to see what happened to Jesse after the finale.

There is no telling what direction Gilligan takes the story, but considering how he has handled Better Call Saul , we are pretty sure the Breaking Bad franchise is in good hands.
