The film, called “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” was written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad,” and will be released on Netflix on Oct. 11. The film is also expected to be broadcast at a later date on AMC.
Netflix provided only the briefest plot summary of “El Camino,” which states, “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.”
Paul said in the interview that he was forbidden from revealing anything more about what happens in the film. But, like the show’s fans, he said he also believed he had said goodbye to the world of “Breaking Bad” when the TV series concluded.
As with “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” production for “El Camino” took place in and around Albuquerque. Last year, publications like the Albuquerque Journal got wind of a movie being filmed under the code name “Greenbrier” and quickly deduced that it was connected to “Breaking Bad.”
