New Breaking Bad film teaser sees Jesse Pinkman return
Breaking Bad fans have been given a glimpse of Jesse Pinkman’s future in a chilling teaser for the show’s movie-length sequel which airs on Netflix next month.
The film, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, stars Aaron Paul and will be available on the streaming service from 11 October.
The clip shows Jesse Pinkman (Paul) in a car as he listens to a radio news broadcast about a massacre he escaped from in the series finale.
He smokes a cigarette out of the car window – which is the same vehicle he was last seen driving – as the radio report says police are looking for a man who fled the scene.
Netflix also shared a brief teaser starring Charles Baker as his Breaking Bad character Skinny Pete in conjunction with the film.
The hugely popular American neo-Western crime drama sees its creator Vince Gilligan return as writer-director.
More than 10 Breaking Bad characters are set to star in the movie, which was filmed in a top secret production in Albuquerque, New Mexico, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Paul revealed last week that his former co-star Bryon Cranston used to leave him “devastated” after tricking him into believing he had been killed off in the hit show.
“He would say, ‘Hey, did you read the next script?’ And I’d go, ‘Nah, did you get it?’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.’ And he just would give me this big hug,” Paul told The Hollywood Reporter.
Paul’s character Pinkman was originally supposed to die in the first season, but Gilligan eventually decided against it.
By the time the series finale aired in 2013, the show was among the most-watched cable shows on US television and won numerous awards, including 16 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Paul won the Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series three times.
