Breaking Bad never ended, it just went back to the beginning. Or at least, that’s the mentality of many fans who just started watching the whole thing all over again. The story of Walter White’s evolution from cancer ridden high school chemistry teacher to drug kingpin grabbed audiences and is now available to own on DVD and Blu-ray. To celebrate this release, The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square has unveiled a rather large graffiti that chronicles Walter’s transformation. Created by graffiti artists Aroe Msk and AVK1 (the things parents name their kids these days), the artwork will be viewable until the 8th December. Click pictures below to enlarge.

So... yeah... about what I said about the winding down "slave movie/TV show fever"... maybe I spoke too soon. On the heels of last week's news that Giancarlo Esposito will be directing a feature film on abolitionist John Brown, with Esposito playing Frederick Douglass, as well as my suggestion that there's likely a film adaptation in the future of author James McBride's 2013 National Book Awards winning novel, The Good Lord Bird - the memoir of a 103-year-old black man, who claims to have served with abolitionist John Brown... It's been announced today that another James McBride novel, Song Yet Sung (published in 2009), will be adapted into a TV series at the FX network, via Kelsey Grammer's Gammnet Nh production company. To be titled The Code, here's a breakdown of the novel:In the days before the Civil War, a runaway slave named Liz Spocott breaks free from her »

"When we come back, everyone's in really interesting places," O'Bannon tells Zap2it. "Aaron [Zak Orth] has had a close encounter with the nano and feels there's an urgent mission he must go on. Monroe [David Lyons] is obviously aware he has a son out there somewhere. ... Having reunited with our people and also learning he has a son out there that he didn't know he had before, that becomes a very important part of his mission.
"Miles [Billy Burke] and Rachel [Elizabeth Mitchell], their relationship is cranking up at well. Charlie [Tracy Spiridakos] is pursuing her strength and really starts to step forward as one of the leaders in the fight against the Patriots. I think we've got everyone teed up in a really good way."

Instead it left eleven dead and led to Brown’s capture, after which he was found guilty of treason and hanged. The notoriety of his violent attacks are credited with sparking the Civil War.
Esposito will also star in the project as Frederick Douglass, a freed slave-turned-abolitionist and orator who declined to join the Harper’s Ferry attack.
Jose Rivera ("Motorcycle Diaries," "On The Road") adapted the script from Evan Carton's 2006 book. Esposito, Keith Sweitzer, Robert Knott, Jesse Singer and David Johnson will produce. Filming aims to begin early in the Summer.

Over a year ago, in an exclusive S&A interview with Giancarlo Esposito regarding his work on Revolution, Breaking Bad, his craft and more, the actor revealed to us that he was developing a project on abolitionist John Brown that he would direct, adding that he would like to make it a miniseries for cable TV. Skip ahead to this afternoon to news that Esposito has made progress on the project, which is now titled Patriotic Treason, and has attracted the acting talents of Ed Harris to star as Brown. Based on the book Patriotic Treason: John Brown and the Soul of America by Evan Carton, the project will not be a miniseries as Esposito originally told us he »

As Gus Fring, he was the most compelling, calculating and then (spoiler alert) cooked villain on Breaking Bad. But in real life Giancarlo Esposito is really a friendly, charming bloke. He’s also a director and has set his sights on a new project, an adaptation of Evan Carton’s book Patriotic Treason, in which he’s also planning to star alongside Ed Harris.The full title of Carton’s book – which Jose Rivera will adapt – is Patriotic Treason: John Brown and The Soul Of America, which follows the man who planned an attack in 1859 on a ferry carrying slaves. His hope was to kick-start a slave uprising, but the incident left 11 dead and Brown in custody. He was eventually found guilty of treason and hanged, and ionically, despite being decried as a violent lunatic, his actions did help spark the Civil War. Harris will be Brown, while Esposito is playing freed-slave-turned-abolitionist Frederick Douglas, »

Most would agree, Jj Abrams has had a successful career which has gone from strength to strength. Undoubtedly, Star Wars now offers an opportunity for him to reach a creative zenith, but represents also his largest risk. His stylistic choices may not be to everyone’s tastes and he himself admits that there are elements over which he has an obsession (lens flares & secrecy) but these are still a matter of personal taste (I’m ambivalent over the former, and truly appreciate the latter). All that aside, outside his burgeoning film directing career, as an executive producer Abrams has been responsible for an incredible amount of television in a very small space of time. »

(Cbr) Giancarlo Esposito has already paid a visit to Greendale Community College, and Jonathan Banks is planning an extended stay, so it’s perhaps to be expected that another "Breaking Bad" alum will be dropping by the set of NBC’s "Community". According to Entertainment Weekly, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will make his acting debut as “a smooth-talking gold digger who winds up exacerbating a fight between Annie (Alison Brie) and Abed (Danny Pudi).” The episode, which is being filmed this week, will air late winter or early spring. It was announced just last week that "Arrested Development" creator Mitch Hurwitz will also »

When Community comes back this year, it’s bring a lot of talent with it. It’s already lined up one Breaking Bad cameo. That would be Mike, Jonathan Banks, showing up for 11 episodes(!) as a criminology professor. And we’ve already seen Gus Fring, Giancarlo Esposito, in two episodes so far as Pierce’s half-brother. Now, Breaking [&hellip
According to EW.com, Gilligan will make his acting debut on the NBC comedy, playing a "smooth-talking gold digger." The character shows up at Greendale and gets involved in a fight between Abed (Danny Pudi) and Annie (Alison Brie).
This now makes three "Breaking Bad" alumni to grace "Community" with their presence. Giancarlo Esposito -- who played Gus Fring on "Breaking Bad" -- has recurred as the illegitimate half brother of Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase). Jonathan Banks, meanwhile, has booked a recurring role in the upcoming season. The former "Breaking Bad" tough guy will play a professor in 11 episodes.
With the casting of Gilligan, "Community" Season 5 has once again proven that it's the place to be a guest star this year. In addition to Gilligan and Banks, many other big names have been announced. They include Nathan Fillion, »
Perhaps it was only a matter of time: Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will appear on Community, the third notable Bb person to do so.

According to EW, Gilligan will play a "smooth-talking gold digger" who gets caught in a fight between Annie and Abed. Gilligan's not the only heralded showrunner who'll be making an appearance in the coming months — Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwitz will be at Greendale this season, too.

Saturday evening at Austin Film Festival, I ran into a friend from high school at The Hideout. As we stood in line talking with a college-age badgeholder about what we'd seen so far, we noticed some recognizable faces were basically cutting in line in front of us (with permission from Aff folks). Some cast members from NBC's Revolution wanted to check out the Shorts 4 program.
Among the actors I spotted were Giancarlo Esposito, Stephen Collins (7th Heaven) and Brenda Strong (who's on the new Dallas). Not a one of them refused a picture with a fan (as our new young friend was happy to discover). We got in, but I'm not sure all of the film passholders in line did. Indeed, two of the three shorts programs I attended that day were full to bursting. Aff might want to consider moving the shorts to a larger venue next year.

Austin, TX. -- Passholders at the ongoing Austin Film Festival, a writers-centric event, began lining up hours early on Sunday in order to snag one of the 300 coveted seats at the State Theatre for a live-reading of Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan's long-unproduced script 2 Face. Gilligan would have drawn crowds if he was the only big-name participant, but the fact that his work would be read by a number of other high-profile individuals -- including Will Ferrell, Oscar nominee Thomas Haden Church (Sideways), Emmy nominee Linda Cardellini (Mad Men) and Breaking Bad alum Giancarlo Esposito --

The cast of "Do The Right Thing" came together once again to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the iconic film. Everyone from Spike Lee to Ruby Dee to Giancarlo Esposito reunited thanks to Entertainment Weekly and "Good Morning America."
"That film took the world by storm. People still call me Mookie today," Lee says. Everyone except Dee, that is. She laughs and says, "No, I will never say M-o-o-k-i-e ever again."
Even though "Do The Right Thing" was made decades ago, it still has left a big impact on its actors. "The film really put me on the map as a character actor. It changed my life," Esposito says. Dee adds, "I remember the opening sequence of do the right thing, yes. Everyone on Twitter likes to remind me of it."
"Do The Right Thing" was released on June 30, 1989. This reunion is the last of "Gma's" reunion week. »
