The Breaking Bad actress Anna Gunn has cleared up rumors regarding the eagerly-anticipated Breaking Bad movie after co-stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul posted similar pictures on the same day.
Possible clues regarding the much-anticipated movie were rife when both Cranston and Paul shared the same photograph of two donkeys on their Twitter pages. For those who are bad with clues, the donkey symbolises the mule. Drug mules, to be more precise.
Anyway, the speculation looked to have some substance as the captions for both tweets read: 'Soon'. Unfortunately, it turned out the cryptic tweets were for a tequila brand that Cranston and Paul are working on.
"I believe it is a nod to a mezcal tequila that they are bringing out, the two of them, called Dos Hombres," Gunn said on British television.
"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]."
Asked if it had anything to do with the Breaking Bad film, Gunn simply said, "No, I'm sorry!"
It was announced earlier this year that the streaming giants Netflix were backing the movie. The show's lead actor, Bryan Cranston, who played Walter White, admitted on The Dan Patrick Show that the film was definitely getting made.
"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."
According to hacks at The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will centre on Aaron Paul's character Jesse Pinkman and pick off from the gripping season finale.
The tense episode saw Jesse dramatically escape from his captors following a gunfight with Jack's cohort of gangsters. He is then asked by a wounded Walt to kill him after the battle. But Jessie can't do it and escapes in Todd's El Camino car crying that the ordeal is finally over.
Further details will be sure to emerge within the coming months, while ardent and inpatient fans have even taken to stalking the production crew in the local area to garner whatever information they can.
Various fan photos of the set have been uploaded to Instagram, and one popular theory is that the film will centre on a series of flashbacks.
Jesse's car has often been seen towed around the New Mexico capital and outside his parents' house while Ed the Disappearer's vacuum shop looks likely also to be included.
A film website called Revenge of the Fans even claimed, "Not only will the story find a way to bring back Jane - with whom Jesse had a tragic love affair way back during the show's first season - but series star [Bryan] 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."
