‘Breaking Bad’ Movie Release Date, Title and Plot Revealed

The “Breaking Bad” movie is coming to Netflix sooner than you might think.

The film, titled “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” is now set to be released on Netflix on Oct. 11, according to a report from the New York Times, with Aaron Paul returning as the series’ popular meth cook Jesse Pinkman. Jesse was last seen leaving a Nazi compound while driving off to an unknown location.

Details for the film were also spotted by a Reddit user after Netflix posted a short description for the film online. The brief synopsis reads, “Fugitive Jesse Pinkman runs from his captors, the law, and his past.”

As previously reported, the film was written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad,” and will air on AMC following its Netflix premiere. During its initial run, the series aired on the cable network from 2008 to 2013.

It is unclear whether Bryan Cranston, who played main character Walter White in the series, will appear in the film. Cranston has previously confirmed that the film was happening but would not say whether or not he would be involved.

Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, Charles Newirth, Diane Mercer and Aaron Paul are producing with Sony Pictures Television.
