Here's what those cryptic Breaking Bad tweets actually mean
The Breaking Bad movie is definitely coming.
After it was revealed what Walter White had done with ricin in Breaking Bad, fans of the show finally realised that the penny had dropped. We were now witnessing the rise of a criminal mastermind slowly losing his grip on morality and decency.
However, a large reason why Vince Gilligan's show is so good was due to the constant ambiguity of Walter's motivations.
At times, he was a stone cold bastard who didn't care if anyone lived or died. In other moments, he seemed like a desperate family man clinging to the broken shards of his life while trying to piece them back together.
Ozymandias. Telephone call.
That scene perfectly defines the dichotomy, contradictions and cryptic nature of Walter White's character.
Well, in terms of being cryptic, both Bryan Cranston (Walter White) and Aaron Paul (Jessie Pinkman) piqued the interest of the internet earlier this week after they posted the following messages on their respective Twitter feeds.

At first, we thought that it was some sort of secretive confirmation that filming on the Breaking Bad movie had begun, or that Cranston was hinting at his involvement in the project.
Drug mules, perhaps?
During an interview on The One Show, Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn (Skyler) said: "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 were would be donkeys there. I got very excited about that and said I’d bring my kids and then it didn’t happen."
Gunn was also coy when asked if her character would be appearing in the Breaking Bad film. Mmm.
As for the movie, right now, Aaron Paul is the only one that's 100% confirmed to star. The film is currently titled Greenbrier, but we'd be amazed if Bryan Cranston doesn't appear in some capacity too. A flashback scene is quite likely.
Speaking on The Dan Patrick Show, Cranston said that he was unsure if Walter White would appear in the film but said he would "absolutely" appear in the movie if Gilligan were to ask him.
"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," he said.
"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those — at least a couple of the character show were not completed, as far as their journey."
Cranston added: "I don't know if there's an appearance — flashbacks, flash forwards — but 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, even if I just come by to visit."
As for the plot of the film, all we know is that it involves "the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".
Deadline previously reported that the film will be available to watch on Netflix.
"For Netflix and AMC to share the Breaking Bad followup is fitting as the two outlets share the credit for the success of the original series. Gilligan acknowledged the streamer’s contribution in his acceptance speech for the series’ first best drama series Emmy win in 2013," a report from earlier this year read.
