Aaron Paul has been talking about the eagerly-awaited Breaking Bad movie – and the actor recalled reading its script for the very first time.
A few days back, the release date and teaser for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie were revealed by Netflix.
Now, in a new interview with The New York Times, the Jesse Pinkman actor has shed some light on the film. “I couldn’t speak for a good 30, 60 seconds,” he said. “I was just lost in my thoughts,” he said of first reading the script’s contents.
“As the guy who played the guy, I was so happy that Vince [Gilligan, creator] wanted to take me on this journey.”
While Paul says he is unable to reveal further details about El Camino, he told the New York Times that fans “will be really happy with what they see”.
“It’s a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn’t realize that I wanted,” he said. “And now that I have it, I’m so happy that it’s there.”
It’s not yet known whether Walter White, the show’s main character, portrayed by Brian Cranston, will appear in the new film, as his character dies at the end of the TV show’s final series.
