The cast of Breaking Bad is set to come back to New Mexico in the upcoming Netflix film El Camino starring Aaron Paul, and a new behind-the-scenes video has surfaced showcasing their return. In the footage above, we see the likes of Paul, creator Vince Gillian, as well as Matt Jones and Charles Baker as Badger and Skinny Pete recalling what it’s like being on set again.
“I knew that this story started with where we left off in Breaking Bad, but I had no idea where it was heading,” Paul states in the video. “I think the story of this film is really about the struggle to survive. It follows a man on the run that will truly stop at nothing to become free. Obviously we thought this thing was done, but it still very much lives and breathes in all of us. So much time had passed but we’re all still so close, and so it was like old friends coming together.”
Meanwhile, Gilligan states that “this is very much a Breaking Bad movie. It feels a bit like old home week, it feels a bit like deja vu. And yet it also feels like something fresh and new. Aaron getting to star in his own movie, the Jesse Pinkman story post Breaking Bad, I’ve been looking forward to doing this for years.”
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie arrives on Netflix on October 11.
World premiere last night of El Camino! First time I’ve seen it – but it won’t be the last. Aaron is SO damn good in it! And Vince Gilligan is just a genius.
