The influx of information comes within hours of fans discovering that the “movie card” or “landing page” for the film could be found on the official Netflix site, finally confirming its existence.
While a detailed plot description for the film remains under wraps, Netflix said in a statement: “In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.”
In the teaser trailer, Jesse’s friend and former colleague Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) is seen being interrogated about Jesse’s whereabouts.
“I don’t know where he’s headed,” he says. “North, south, west, east, Mexico, the moon. I don’t have a clue.”
He adds that he wouldn’t tell the authorities Jesse’s location if he did know. “I heard about what all they did to him to make sure he kept cooking,” he continues. “So sorry, I don’t know what to tell you. No way I’m helping you people put Jesse Pinkman back inside a cage.”
The Breaking Bad flim has been kept under tight lock and key ever since it was reported in 2018 that series creator Vince Gilligan was in the process of writing a Jesse Pinkman sequel.
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will be available to stream on Netflix from 11 October.
