This could be the best news to come from 2019 up to yet. Breaking Bad's Mike Ehrmantraut (played by Jonathan Banks) will reportedly be appearing in the Breaking Bad movie and we're over the moon.
The fixer is arguably the best bloke in the series, he comes in, cleans up the mess in the most humble of ways and leaves without any bother. I mean, what a guy.
Days ago it was claimed by online film publication Revenge of the Fans that Jesse (played by Aaron Paul) and Walter (Bryan Cranston) will reunite in the movie - currently in production under the title Greenbrier.
Along with Cranston and Paul, the site claims Krysten Ritter, Jonathan Banks, Jesse Plemons, Charles Baker, Matt Jones and Robert Forster would all return, along with a 'few surprises'.
Revenge of the Fans states: "Not only will the story [to] find a way bring back Ritter's Jane - with whom Jesse had a tragic love affair way back during the show's first season - but series star Cranston is set to play some sort of role in the new film as well. This, despite both characters having met their ends on the show."
This all comes after Cranston did an interview on The Dan Patrick Show, where he not only confirmed that a film was on its way, but also that he had spoken to Vince Gilligan about the project. He did admit, however, that he hadn't yet seen a script. Presumably that's changed by this stage...
In the interview, Bryan said: "There appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but I have honestly not even read the script.
"There is a question [of] whether we'd even see Walter White in the movie. I would absolutely do it [play Walter again] - it's Vince Gilligan and he's a genius."
He added that he'd like to see some closure for some of the story-lines that remained unresolved by the show's conclusion.
He said: "It's a great story and there's a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to some of these story-lines that were left open.
"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those - at least a couple of the characters who were not completed as far as their journey."
However, at this stage there still isn't much information on when the film will be set - so whether it will resume the story as a sequel, or simply function as a Breaking Bad universe spin-off like Netflix hit Better Call Saul, is still up in the air.
Bryan added: "I'm excited about it because it's Breaking Bad and it was the greatest professional period of my life and I can't wait to see all those people again."
We're just as excited, LAD.
