Aaron Paul reveals alternate ending for El Camino: a Breaking Bad movie

About a year ago, Netflix released the movie El Camino: a Breaking Bad movie, a production created by Vince Gilligan – just like Breaking Bad Y Better Call Saul-, which shows what happened to Jesse Pinkman after the end of the acclaimed AMC series.

Issued between 2008 and 2013, Breaking Bad it concluded with the death of Walter White aka Heisenberg, and with Jesse Pinkman fleeing in a car with no known destination.

Six years later, Gilligan took up this narrative line and decided to show what happened to the young man from Albuquerque who dedicated himself to cooking and dealing methamphetamine with his chemistry teacher.

The film portrays the escape of Jesse seeking refuge with his friends, and the process of identity change -thanks to Ed, played by Robert Forster-, as he deals with his ghosts and new aspects of deceased characters are revealed, such as Walter White ( Bryan Cranston) and Jane (Krysten Ritter).

A year after its premiere on Netflix, Aaron Paul revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that originally the ending was slightly different.

“I thought it was such a beautiful way to end this movie. He looks at the seat next to him and it’s empty, and out of nowhere Jane appears, and they’re just in love, and they’re at a much less complicated time in their lives, “Paul told EW.

“And Jane ends up giving Jesse the best advice she could get: ‘Just take control of your own destiny and run with it.’ And that’s exactly what he did at the end of this movie. I just thought it was such a beautiful way to move this story forward, “added the actor, later declassifying that Jane’s cameo should be longer.

“That day, Vince [Gilligan] He realized: he was preparing a shot, and he was like, ‘There are so many damn shots of you in a car! We have to get you out of your car, ”Paul said.

“So the scene starts with us driving and then the car breaks down and then shows me talking on the phone, trying to pretend that she knows why the car broke down so I have a chance to impress Jane a bit.”

He continued, “And then you see him just walking and sitting next to Jane, and he’s telling her how he feels about her, and how they got this back and forth. And then there is a cut ”.

However, the sequence continued, so it now constitutes a deleted scene. Jesse references Jane’s advice on fate, about which she then says, “I think I might agree with that,” to which Jane responds, “You’re not going to propose, are you?”

The Deleted Scene is available on the Blu-Ray, DVD, and limited edition SteelBook release from El Camino: a Breaking Bad movie, the one that went on sale on October 13.
