‘Breaking Bad’ Spanish-Language Remake ‘Metastasis’ Cooks Up First Trailer
Our ‘Breaking Bad‘ withdrawal has reached an all-time high following this past Sunday’s series finale “Felina,” one we had thought even the upcoming Spanish-language remake ‘Metastasis‘ couldn’t satiate. Imagine our surprise however, that the first trailer for Walter Blanco’s turn to the dark side of chemistry actually looks pretty good, bitch!
Swapping out the infamous RV for a dilapidated school bus (apparently RVs aren’t very relateable in Colombia), our first look at ‘Metastasis’ follows the pictures that have emerged in recent days in highlighting Walter Blanco in the iconic tightie-whities shot that Bryan Cranston first made so memorable. ‘Metastasis’ certainly has the style and intensity down, even if the trailer only covers the inaugural episode.
Actor Diego Trujillo (‘El Capo,’ ‘A Corazón Abierto’) will take on the role of Walter Blanco, while Roberto Urbina (‘Che: Part 1,’ ‘Correo de Inocentes’) will play Jose Miguel Rosas, the equivalent of Jesse Pinkman. Sandra Reyes will portray Ciela (Skyler) and Julián Arango will play Henry, counterpart to our beloved Hank Schrader.
“Critics and audiences love Breaking Bad and its original take on the drug dealing business,” said Angelica Guerra, Sony senior vp and managing director of production and Latin America and U.S. Hispanic. “It is a very relevant story for all audiences, produced with the highest standards, in spectacular locations with the best talent in the region.”
Well ‘Breaking Bad’ fans, what think you on it? See Walter White reborn in the ‘Metastasis’ trailer above, and tell us in the comments if you’d want to be able to watch the remake!
