So without further ado, let's get on with it.

Release Date
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is set to be released on October 11th 2019 on Netflix, and will be broadcast at a later date on AMC.

Background Development
Rumors began to circulate in November 2018 that a film continuation of Breaking Bads was in development, and would see Aaron Paul reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman. At this time, Paul said that Vince Gilligan had contacted him around 2017 about plans for celebrating the tenth anniversary of Breaking Bad and hinted at something big; Paul vowed that he would be eager to be involved with any idea that Gilligan had to continue Jesse's character.

In an interview in November 2018, Bryan Cranston, who starred as Walter White, confirmed that a film was indeed in the works, but said he had not seen a script. Cranston also stated he would be interested in appearing.

It was reported in February 2019 that a Breaking Bad film would be released by Netflix and AMC.

Actor Bob Odenkirk, who played Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad and spin-off series Better Call Saul, was the first to confirm the film had been completed, when in an August 2019 interview he stated,
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.

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.
Netflix announced the film on August 24th 2019, with the name El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.


Cast
  • Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman
Although at this time the only confirmed cast member is Aaron Paul, expect to see other previous Breaking Bad cast members, including Charles Baker as Skinny Pete (as seen in trailer below).

Producers, Writers and Director
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is written and directed by original Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. He also serves as Executive Producer for the film. As is Aaron Paul.

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

Filming
Filming occurred in Albuquerque, New Mexico around November 2018 under the working title of Greenbrier. By the time local media made a potential connection between Greenbrier and Breaking Bad, filming had been mostly completed.


Premise
In the wake of his dramatic escape from captivity, Jesse Pinkman must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.

The title refers to the Chevrolet El Camino that Jesse is seen driving away from the white supremacists' headquarters after being rescued by a dying Walter at the end of the Breaking Bad finale "Felina".

In an August 2019 interview Aaron Paul revealed,
I loved the way Jesse was flying through the exterior gates of the Nazi compound. He’s screaming, he’s crying. He’s got these emotions going through his body. And then it just cuts away from him.

[Vince Gillagan] mentioned that he had an idea of where to take it from here, and he wanted to hear my thoughts on it. [After reading the script] I couldn’t speak for a good 30, 60 seconds, I was just lost in my thoughts. As the guy who played the guy, I was so happy that Vince wanted to take me on this journey.

It’s a chapter of ‘Breaking Bad’ that I didn’t realize that I wanted, and now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there.


Trailers
The first teaser trailer (above) arrived on August 24th 2019. In it, Skinny Peat is bought in for questioning about the location of Jesse Pinkman. A photo of Hank Schrader is visable on the wall. It's unknown if this is actually a scene from the film or a specially shot teaser.

Aaron Paul also tweeted a scene from the seventh episode of season three, titled “One Minute”. Apparently this scene will prepare you for what's to come...


“Let me understand this,” Walt says to Jesse, recovering in a hospital bed. “You’re turning down one and a half million dollars…”

Jesse interrupts him. “I am not turning down the money. I am turning down you! You get it? I want nothing to do with you,” he tells WW. “Ever since I met you, everything I ever cared about is gone, ruined, turned to shit, dead. Ever since I hooked up with the great Heisenberg. I have never been more alone. I have nothing! No one. Alright? And it’s all gone! Get it? No, why would you even care? As long as you get what you want, right? You don’t give a shit about me.”
UPDATE: Sept 10th 2019 - Although there's no new footage from El Camino in the video below, a teaser has been released to remind you of Jesse Pinkman's story...


Perhaps the choice of song accompanying the video, or its lyrics, is some kind of clue as to what to expect?

That's everything we know at this stage, but as we hear of any news surrounding the upcoming El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie we will update this page, so check back soon.
