"Breaking Bad" is back. Vince Gilligan is working on a two-hour movie set in his acclaimed drama's universe.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gilligan is writing the script, producing, and possibly directing the film. But many things remain unclear, including whether original stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are involved and if the story is a prequel or sequel (or spinoff of a supporting character).

It's also unknown if the movie will be released theatrically or air on television or streaming.

All we know is the movie is reportedly codenamed "Greenbrier" and it will "follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom. Production is expected to begin this month in New Mexico.

The movie is Gilligan's first project since signing a new three-year overall deal with Sony TV in July.

"Breaking Bad" ran for five seasons from 2008 to 2013 and told the story of Walter White, a chemistry teacher who turns to making meth after a cancer diagnosis and enlists the help of a former student.

The series is regarded as one of the best in television history and earned numerous awards, including 16 Emmys. The show generated a spinoff,  the highly acclaimed "Better Call Saul," which will return for a fifth season next year.
