A “Breaking Bad” movie from original series creator Vince Gilligan is set to begin production in New Mexico later this month.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, the film will begin shooting under the title “Greenbrier” in mid-November and will run through February.

The New Mexico film office told the Journal a film from Sony Pictures with such a title will begin shooting next month. The project is said to track the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. The film office did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Further details about the film are being kept under wraps, and it is unclear which or if any of the show’s original characters are expected to return. It is also unclear whether the project is planned for a theatrical release or will air on television.

Representatives for Gilligan did not immediately return TheWrap’s request for comment. Sony Pictures Television, which produced “Breaking Bad” for AMC, had no comment when reached by TheWrap.

Gilligan signed a new three-year overall deal with Sony Pictures TV in July, where his High Bridge Production company has been set up for the past 11 years. Gilligan’s renewal comes as tech giants including Netflix, Amazon and even Apple, are paying big dollars for high-profile TV talent, including Ryan Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, Jordan Peele and Oprah Winfrey.

“Breaking Bad” ran for five seasons — split across six years — on AMC from 2007 to 2013. A spinoff following Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman character, “Better Call Saul,” began airing in 2015 and just wrapped its fourth season in October.
