Steven Soderbergh reckons Bryan Cranston's Walt would 'clean up' at the movies.

Steven Soderbergh has suggested that the last two episodes of Breaking Bad should be made into a movie.

The Hollywood director - who is a big fan of the drama starring Bryan Cranston - said that the film would be the perfect way to fill cinema seats.

"I thought it would be really cool to have the final two episodes of the show as a movie that aired the Friday after the penultimate episode," he told Empire.

"You'd sell that during the season - 'See the season finale in theatres!' - and just run it for a week, but I feel like you'd clean up. It's never been done before."

He also said that the film should be released as a download after offering fans "a communal viewing experience that week" at the cinema.

The first of eight final Breaking Bad episodes will premiere Stateside in August on AMC.
