Watch the teaser for ‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ by Netflix
A small detail in the season finale of “Breaking Bad” provided the title for the upcoming follow-up movie.
Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul, drove off in a Chevy El Camino and the new film will reveal Pinkman’s life after the conclusion of the Emmy-winning drama.
Netflix released a one-minute teaser for “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” Saturday with the question, “What happened to Jesse Pinkman?”
However, the teaser has no signs of Pinkman. It’s all Skinny Pete, played by Charles Baker, in a police interrogation.
“I don’t know what to tell you, I only said, like, 500 times already,” Skinny Pete says at the clip’s opening. “I have no idea where he is. Don’t know where he’s headed either. North, south, east, west, Mexico, the moon — I don’t have a clue. But yo, even if I did, I wouldn’t tell you.”
Pinkman was a meth cook and former partner of terminally-ill Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in the series that wrapped up six years ago.
Netflix released only one line about the movie’s storyline: “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.”
And Paul didn’t reveal much more in an interview with The New York Times.
“It’s a chapter of ‘Breaking Bad’ that I didn’t realize that I wanted,” Paul told The Times. “And now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there.”
Paul refused to reveal if any of the other “Breaking Bad” cast members will appear in “El Camino.”
“All I can say, I think people will be really happy with what they see,” he told The Times.
It hits Netflix Oct. 11.
