Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris will appear in Netflix thriller Carry On alongside Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus) and Sinqua Walls (Power).
Deadline reports that production kicked off this week with Jaume Collet-Serra (Black Adam) on directing duties, while Joe Williamson (Ford v Ferrari), Curtiss Cook (West Side Story), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) and Gil Perez-Abraham (The Batman) also join a stacked cast.
Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Jason Bateman (Ozark), Sofia Carson (Descendants) and Theo Rossi (Army of the Dead) were confirmed for roles earlier this year too.
As for the movie itself, it’ll center on Egerton’s TSA [transportation security administration] agent Ethan Kopek who gets blackmailed by a mysterious traveller.
His aim? To slip a lethal package onto a plane on Christmas Day.
Right now, it’s unclear who’ll be playing who, apart from the main star, but we can easily see Norris turning up as some sort of wisecracking enforcer.Meanwhile, Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul fans might be interested to hear executive producer Peter Gould’s thoughts on more Hank Schrader in the future.
“Every single one of these characters could have a whole show. There’s no question. I mean, Kim Wexler, Mike Ehrmantraut, Hank Schrader… I could see the Hank Schrader show, absolutely,” he said earlier this year. “We’ll just have to see what happens. Right now. I think we’re going to give it a little rest.”
AMC Studios president Dan McDermott went on to reveal: “I can tell you that if I could do anything to encourage Vince [Gilligan] and Peter to continue on in this universe, I would do it. I think you’d have to ask them, but the door is always open and I long for the day my phone rings and Vince, Peter or our friends at Sony call to say: ‘Hey, I think we have another show set in this universe’.”
Breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul are streaming on Netflix.
