Yo, yo-yo, 148-3 to the 3 to the 6 to the 9, representing the ABQ, what up biatch?! Leave it at the tone.
The reason Jesse Pinkman can’t take a call because he is busy cooking up a movie sequel to Emmy winning award show Breaking Bad. It is official that El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is a follow-up sequel starring Jesse Pinkman himself, Aaron Paul.
The title refers to the Chevrolet El Camino that Jesse is seen driving away from Jack’s from hideout after being rescued by a dying Walter at the end of the Breaking Bad finale “Felina.”
Deadline reported in February that Netflix had picked up first-run rights to the movie. At the Sun Valley Film Festival, Aaron Paul didn’t confirm whether he was involved in the upcoming movie sequel, which will air first on Netflix and then AMC, as Variety reported in February, but did indicate that he was open to reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman.
It was ‘Hollywood Reporter’ who confirmed that Aaron Paul will reprise his three times Emmy winning role of Jesse Pinkman. Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk made headlines when he said the movie had already been filmed, which surprised pretty much everyone.
The production on the film reportedly took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico from last November to February. Series creator, writer, and director – Vince Gilligan is orchestrating the entire project.
The movie would take it forward from the last episode, Felina, of Breaking Bad. In the final episode (Season 6, Episode 15) of Breaking Bad, Jesse flees in the car from Jack’s hideout and Walt collapses from his wound inside the Quonset hut lab. Sources told Hollywood Reporter that Gilligan would direct the film, which would follow the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom.
Today, we have not just confirmation that the film exists, but Netflix has shown off a poster, a trailer, synopsis and the release date for the film, which will be October 11.
The teaser trailer for the film doesn’t show Pinkman, but rather it’s a short interrogation scene with Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) who says that he doesn’t know where Jesse his, but even if he did, he wouldn’t tell the cops. He says he’s been watching the news, where apparently the story of Jesse’s imprisonment and the gunfight at the Nazi hideout have gone public.
“El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” is produced by Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Aaron Paul, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
