Netflix will make El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie available for streaming worldwide Oct. 11.
Set after the events of the “Breaking Bad” television series, the movie focuses on Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) as he deals with his past in order to forge some kind of future. The thriller is written and directed by series creator Vince Gilligan, and produced by Paul, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth and Diane Mercer in association with Sony Pictures Television.
On “Breaking Bad,” which ran from 2008 to 2013 on AMC, Jesse was depicted as a low-level drug dealer who finds himself in near constant danger from the larger criminal underworld after being recruited by Walter White (Bryan Cranston) to help cook and distribute crystal meth.
Paul’s performance as Jesse on the show earned him three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Netflix also debuted a trailer for the film, which features former Pinkman associate Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) refusing to divulge Jesse’s location to law enforcement.
