Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning's End: 'Breaking Bad' Gets A Spanish Remake.
I thought that all of the Breaking Bad news had been reported. I thought it has all been pored over, dissected, thoroughly digested, and then glowingly laid to rest. Then I stumbled upon the glorious image of Walter Blanco with the news that Metástasis has been created by Sony Pictures Television and Teleset for the Colombian market.
I didn’t even watch Breaking Bad, but this news has me excited. Changing Walter White to Walter Blanco (Diego Trujillo)? LOVE! Walt’s wife Skylar will be named Cielo (Sandra Reyes); Jesse will be Jose Miguel Rosas (Robert Urbina); Hank is Henry Navarro(Julian Arango). Instead of an RV, Walt and Jose will build their business in an old school bus.
Vince Gilligan and his minions have been consulted for the remake, but the series will lean more toward telenova instead of American-style drama. UniMas in America has already purchased the series, so if you have that channel you can contrast and compare the two versions.
Bleeding Cool managed to find a trailer on Youtube that’s about 30 seconds long.
Feast your eyes on the some of the new cast and begin to either salivate or rage. Your choice.
