‘Breaking Bad’ Spanish Remake: Watch 6 Minutes of ‘Metastasis’ Right Now, Plus New Details!
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard much from ‘Breaking Bad”s Spanish language remake ‘Metastasis,’ at least since the first trailer back in October, now that ‘Better Call Saul‘ dominates the conversation. So while we wait for a return to the original world of Walter White, check out an epic 6-minute preview of the Spanish language ‘Metastasis,’ along with new details on its own Saul Goodman!
For those unfamiliar with the officially-endorsed remake, which swaps out the iconic RV for a more culturally recognizable schoolbus, actor Diego Trujillo (‘El Capo,’ ‘A Corazón Abierto’) takes over the role of Walter Blanco, with Roberto Urbina (‘Che: Part 1,’ ‘Correo de Inocentes’) playing Jose Miguel Rosas, the equivalent of Jesse Pinkman. Sandra Reyes will portray Ciela (Skyler) and Julián Arango will play Henry, counterpart Hank Schrader, all of whom prove almost instantly recognizable in the six-minute trailer above.
Interestingly, where ‘Breaking Bad’ didn’t officially introduce Saul Goodman until the second season, New Republic has uncovered a few details of yet another change to the source material, as “Saul Bueno” instead hosts a late-night talk show titled “Cuéntele a Saúl,” from which he provides out legal advice.
It remains to be seen how and when U.S. viewers will be able to see the ‘Metastasis’ take on ‘Breaking Bad,’ but the footage above at least proves excitingly recognizable. Check it out for yourself, and tell us if you think the remake will do Walter
White Blanco justice!
