The ‘Breaking Bad’ sequel trailer has arrived along with an official title and a release date on Netflix in October…
What happened to Jesse Pinkman after Walter White helped to break him free from captivity and he tore away in an El Camino in the closing moments of ‘Breaking Bad’?
Those answers will come in the upcoming film ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’, which will debut on Netflix on October 11.
The movie, which was largely kept under wraps even while filming was already taking place, was written by ‘Breaking Bad’ creator Vince Gilligan as he adds another chapter to the epic, drug fueled saga that ran for five seasons on AMC while racking up numerous awards.
The film will find out what happened to Jesse following the events of the ‘Breaking Bad’ finale, which aired back in 2013. Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:
“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.”
The trailer that was released for ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ showed Jesse’s former friend and fellow drug dealer Skinny Pete being questioned by the cops as the search for the former meth cook is obviously underway.
“It’s a chapter of ‘Breaking Bad’ that I didn’t realize that I wanted,” Paul said in an interview with the New York Times. “And now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there.”
Paul added that he was completely OK with the way Jesse’s story ended in ‘Breaking Bad’ but then Gilligan called him two years later with an idea to carry on the story beyond the show.
“At the very end of the conversation he mentioned that he had an idea of where to take it from here, and he wanted to hear my thoughts on it. I quickly told Vince that I would follow him into a fire,” Paul said.
“I couldn’t speak for a good 30, 60 seconds [after reading the script]. I was just lost in my thoughts. As the guy who played the guy, I was so happy that Vince wanted to take me on this journey.”
Obviously some familiar faces from ‘Breaking Bad’ are expected to appear in the movie alongside Paul but the biggest question remains whether or not Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as Walter White for the film. At the end of ‘Breaking Bad’, Walter laid down in the meth lab at the Nazi compound where Jesse was being held captive as he bled out after taking a gunshot to the stomach.
By all accounts, Walt died right there as authorities flooded into the compound but it’s still entirely possible that Cranston could return to his iconic role as the chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin for some kind of flashback scene alongside Paul.
Paul couldn’t say if he would share scenes with Cranston or any of his other former ‘Breaking Bad’ co-stars but he definitely sounds happy with the result of the film once they finished production.
“All I can say, I think people will be really happy with what they see,” Paul said.
