Much like the vexing insect that couldn’t be swatted away in director Rian Johnson’s season-three episode “Fly” of the all-time-classic AMC series, buzz has been flying around Netflix’s long-awaited “Breaking Bad” movie ever since the Emmy-winning stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul tweeted cryptic messages earlier this summer.
Earlier today, according to a post on CNET, Netflix accidentally (or accidentally on purpose?) leaked a placeholder page for the film on its website, with the film titled “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.” See below.
The page has since been taken down, but it certainly gave credence to “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” star Bob Odenkirk’s recent claims that the movie has already been shot. “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,” Odenkirk said. “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.”
The “Breaking Bad” movie is one of the most secretive projects in Hollywood. Plot details are scant, and cast members are staying tight-lipped. In the final episode of the series that aired in September 2013, Jesse was last seen fleeing from a kidnapping and off to destinations unknown. Series creator Vince Gilligan has not weighed in either, but he is the writer and director of the feature film.
