Finally. The much-anticipated “Breaking Bad” movie is nearly here. The film, titled “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” will hit Netflix on Oct. 11, the streaming giant announced on Saturday.
The synopsis of the film reads: In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future. This gripping thriller is written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad.”
Fans have been clamoring for any information they could get about the film (and when it would come), even believing that a cryptic social media photo from series stars Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston in July was a prelude to an announcement. It was… but for their new mezcal company.
But now there are real details about the film — and a teaser.
In the clip, which readers can watch via the video above, Pinkman associate Skinny Pete is staying strong in the interrogation room.
“El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” will center on Paul’s character, and beloved screw-up, Jesse Pinkman. The last time fans of the series, which ended in 2013, saw Pinkman he was driving off in a state of relief and tears — in Todd Alquist’s (Jesse Plemons) El Camino.
Gilligan, who announced plans for a movie centered around Paul’s character in November of last year, said that he intended for Pinkman’s fate to be ambiguous.
Cranston, however, has said that Walter White is most definitely dead. Looks like fans will have to wait a couple more months to see how things played out after the fateful finale.
The film was produced by Paul, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth and Diane Mercer, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
