A Breaking Bad sequel movie is heading to our screens in October.
One of the most acclaimed television series of the past decade or so, the superb Breaking Bad has also enjoyed an excellent spin-off series, Better Call Saul.
The latter is now up to season five, with Bob Odenkirk in the lead role. And whilst doing promotion for the new run of the show, he’s been chatting too about the upcoming Breaking Bad movie.
Turns out that not only is it happening, but that it’s already been shot in secret, too. It’s going to be a sequel story to the television series, starring Aaron Paul. Odenkirk told The Hollywood Reporter that “I’ve heard so many different things about it, but I am excited about the Breaking Bad movie. I can’t wait to see it”.
He added that “I don’t know what people know and don’t know. I find it hard to believe you don’t know it was shot. They did it. You know what I mean? How is that a secret? But it is. They’ve done an amazing job of keeping it a secret”.
UPDATE: It’s now been confirmed that the film is called El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, that it’ll debut on Netflix in October, and that it has a trailer. This trailer, in fact…
