Anna Gunn Clears Up Breaking Bad Movie Speculation After Cryptic Tweets
Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn has torpedoed rumours surrounding the forthcoming movie after fellow actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul posted simultaneous tweets of the same picture the other day.
Speculation started to swirl around about the big-screen return for drug dealing duo Walter White and Jesse Pinkman when Cranston and Paul both shared the same photograph of two donkeys on their Twitter pages.
Donkeys are like mules, mules traffic drugs... get it?
Oh, and both their tweets included the caption: 'Soon'.
Anyway, it turns out that it might not actually have been anything to do with the hit TV show, which concluded in 2013, but more to do with a new tequila brand that Cranston and Paul are involved with.
Gunn, who played Walter White's wife Skyler, told The One Show: "I believe it is a nod to a mezcal tequila that they are bringing out, the two of them, called Dos Hombres.
"Bryan was going to have a launch party on Cinco de Mayo last month and he promised that there would be donkeys there.
"I got very excited about that and said I'd bring my kids and then [it didn't happen]."
Mel Giedroyc, who hosts the BBC One evening show, then asked if it was anything to do with a potential Breaking Bad film, to which Gunn replied: "No, I'm sorry!"

However, just because this particular post isn't about the movie, that doesn't mean that it isn't going to happen.
The Hollywood Reporter claimed earlier in the year that streaming giant Netflix is going to make the movie. Well, they did help out with spin-off show Better Call Saul, so it would make sense for them to be involved.
Many people reckon that the film version will centre around Paul's character, Jesse Pinkman. However, Cranston was the first person to admit that the film was going to happen. We just don't know if he's in it.
He told The Dan Patrick Show: "It's a great story and there are a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these storylines that were left open [in the series finale].
"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those - at least a couple of the character shown were not completed, as far as their journey.
Obviously, full details of the production are being kept strictly confidential. Most fans will be hoping that Cranston reprises his role in some capacity.
We'll just have to wait and see.
