Guitar god Slash could become the star of the "Breaking Bad" sequel series, as former Guns N' Roses axeman has reportedly received an unofficial invitation to join the cast.

As NME reports, the show titled "Anastasia" would star Kate Hudson and actor Val Kilmer playing roles of US Marshals.

The Kickstarter campaign was already launched, aiming for a hefty goal of $500,000. The whole project is the brainchild of a California man called Lawrence Shepherd.

"Slash will stay in the 'Slash' character, which will enable another writing venue as he will always be undercover," the official description reads. "He is Kilmer's partner ... Who doesn't want to see Slash with a Glock sticking out from under that jacket? Come on!"

Meanwhile, the second, more official "Breaking Bad" sequel is already in the works. Titled "Better Call Saul," the show is scheduled to air in 2015 and is set in 2002, six years before Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk) meets Walter White.

As for the Slash-starred series, the guitarist refused to give any comments on the matter, only cooking up additional rumors. Stay tuned for more.

    "Breaking Bad sequel..set in 2002, six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White." That would make it a prequel then.
    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey... stuff.
    A Whole Sort of General Mish-Mash, perhaps? More Douglas Adams: Anything that happens, happens. Anything that in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen. Anything that in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again. It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though.
    Maybe he will acquire a time machine. Time travel seems to be very popular these days and that seems to be a trend in TV. "It doesn't make sense anymore?! It will if they travel through time!" What do you do after you've done everything? Do it again on a different timeline I guess...
    Please just leave Breaking Bad the way it was ended... For once the majority of viewers were happy with a series ending.
    I wasn't happy with it..i wasn't disappointed either (like the LOST ending, jesus..) it felt like that was the only way they COULD have ended it..
    Well, the funding was canceled just about an hour ago by the project creator, so this article is pretty darn useless now.
    I this some kind of joke? How could this guy call something like this a Breaking Bad sequel?!
    Slash isn't real you guys South Park said so. He only lives in our hearts and minds like the Easter bunny, Thor, or Val Kilmer's acting career. There is no need to worry all these things are dead, but as long as we believe they will live on in our hearts and minds.
    if wunterslaush wasn't real, then no one would have cared enough to build that orphanage for the crack babies at the end of the show...his plan was to have a life time supply of future crack dealers. ...slash is real, you guys. *wink
    Better Call Saul is old news, but someone is making another series? The article is confusing. Since when is there an unofficial sequel to Breaking Bad, and what does that even mean?
    a sequel would suggest a plot that continues where the show left off. probly with jesse having to continue making meth(maybe HE gets cancer this time?), but a better sequel would be: better call saul: zombie attorney jesse has a change of heart and turns around and drives back to the meth yard and picks walt up and stuffs him into the trunk. but before he has a chance to drive away, a lightning bolt hits the meth lab and there's a huge toxic explosion that blows the car up and tosses walt out of the trunk. a highly concentrated cloud of meth and lightning sweeps across walt's body and he rises, with a thirst...for METH. before he can escape(coz zombies walk slow) a bunch of cops show up to arrest him...all seems hopeless for walt, until a distant and hazy memory briefly passes his nearly non-existent thoughts...reaching into his tattered shirt pocket, he pulls out a business card... better call saul.
    the sequel its just some guy who thought he could do better that the original writers & its unofficial because he hasn't got vince gilligans consent.
    this sounds absolutely worthless. why is some random guy on kickstarter trying to make a sequel to a show he had nothing to do with? he should come up with his own idea. idiot.
    Some guy made a profit of like $450,000 so he could make a potato salad. A lot of people start these campaigns and just take the money and run (*cough*Starbound*cough*). These internet funding things are retarded.

    Even though hes considered overrated, even though he is no where near the most technically skilled, he is still a guitar god. Deal with it.
    slash is so overrated. like when they had to "pull him offstage" at that Michel Jackson concert.
    First of all i cant see how can it be a sequel, and if you're going to make a similar story, please dont call it Breaking Bad and second , find a better cast of actors. Thanks.
    Better cast? Which actor on that show was wrong for their part?
    Well i guess you didnt undestood my comment... whrn i said a better cast im' talking about the supposed sequel that features Slash , Val Kilmer and i dont know who else.There's nothing wrong with the original cast.

    I second him...These actors fit their characters so well that they are forever going to be looked at as those characters...nobody says "Bitch" like Aaron Paul
    Id rather have a sequel series than this Better Call Saul stuff. Have it start from the end of the last episode where Walter presumably dies but instead he was taken to the hospital by the police and actually survives. Then flash forward a few years showing Walter in prison and plotting a plan to escape or something.
    If this was real who could take this seriously? I would be consistently laughing my ass off at every scene with Slash in it
    ppl don't know the difference between a prequel/sequel and a spin-off? not surprised i guess, this is UG after all, where everyone is just high and/or stupid haha. it was already suggested like 2-3 years ago, that they'd make a "better call saul" spin-off, even before breaking bad ended. anyways, i don't think "saul goodman"(s'all good, man! get it? lol), will be enough to lure me into a whole new show. BB was pretty epic, and not even this new spin off, or some f4ggy little show like game of thrones is gonna come close to its awesomeness.
    What they're not saying in this particular article is that the Kickstarter campaign bombed and raised almost no money whatsoever. Plus the creator of the show never signed off on this sequel/prequel/spinoff. So fortunately, it will remain a joke.
