It's been years since we last heard from Walter White, Breaking Bad.

But if the report is correct, the chemistry teacher changes the shabu dealer to get back to our screen – this time in a film.

The creator of the show Vince Gilligan was signed to make a two-hour project "set in the existing Breaking Bad franchise," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It is unclear whether Brian Cranston and Aaron Paul will repeat the role of their Emmy winner – after all they did did not part with the Better Call Saul event.

Whoever is involved and whenever it's set, is the new film Breaking Bad a good idea? We have seen several other series-changed films to find out.

The Inbetweeners

Breaking Bad is one of those shows which when launched in 2008 led critics of the "golden age of TV" to say we now live in it.

The Inbetweeners may look like different ages but were first aired in England in the same year.

The Bafta Award winning event received good reviews for each of the three seasons and the number of people who watched it only increased.

There was a rumor that the fourth series was being made but Blake Harrison closed the rumor during a chat with ITV back in May.

Simon, Jay, Will, and Neil's transition from TV to the big screen proved to be a hit as far as box office taking – for £ 3.5 million to make – it made £ 65m

The plot to see teenagers leaving their secondary school and going to Crete for summer vacation.

The respected review site, Rotten Tomatoes, gave the original film a very small rating of 55% but that didn't stop making the second film.

However, thanks to on-demand services and repeating a new generation of fans were introduced to The Inbetweeners.

Sex and the city

"I love you … but I love me more. I've been in a relationship with myself for 49 years and that's what I have to do," Samantha said famously during an episode.

Sex and the City were seen as revolutionary when they first aired in 1998 – four women talked openly about love (and sex) they lived with many fashion references.

Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha became as real as our friends – a trip that took place on a small screen until 2004.

Four years later, fans were still thirsty for more who saw Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, and Kim Cattrall returning for a long film.

The film released in 2008 was universally screened by critics but is a big money producer that generates more than £ 400 million in the US alone.

In 2010 Sex and the City 2 was released – it came and went with a whimper – only managing to cover the £ 100m fee to make it.

You're not alone – we've all done a slow beach run – made famous by David Hasselhoff and his team.

Baywatch itself has a good broadcast on TV from 1989-2001.

Now aged 66, The Hoff will never return to store and keep damsels sinking.

So, in 2017, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was trusted to lead the franchise.

The sequence of actions is very large, the soundtrack is solid and the players are very handsome.

But critics cannot decide whether the film is hit or miss.

The Simpsons

The event holds the record for the script series written the longest with primetime when it aired the 636th episode in April 2018.

Episodes are usually around 20 minutes or more, but in 2007 fans were treated to one and a half hours of antics from Homer and other family members.

Even though it has been in the air for almost 30 years, this show still continues to push boundaries and produce laughter.

The honorable news also went to 21 Jump Street, David Brent Office, The Addams Family, Mr. Bean, The Muppet Show, Power Rangers, South Park and Mission Impossible.
