AARON Paul is set to reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman for the Breaking Bad movie.
The 39-year-old actor will return to as the drug dealer in a follow up film to the AMC series, which will air on Netflix.
The star will take on the lead role, with the production following Aaron’s character more closely, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Writer Vince Gilligan previously hinted the upcoming feature-length drama will follow “a kidnapped man on his quest for freedom.”
The creative mastermind is also on board the project, as he will write and direct the production.
Aaron’s character was previously kidnapped in the last scenes of the programme, when he was forced to make crystal meth for Todd (played by Jesse Plemons).
Jesse fled after his drug partner and former chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) attempted to murder Todd and other villains treading on his territory.
The pair came to blows and Walter was left worse for wear after he was accidentally shot by Jesse in a brawl.
The scrap saw everyone killed except for Jesse and a wounded Walt.
Before police confiscated the evidence Jesse fled, while Walt fell to the floor and died.
Details of the spin-off has been kept under wraps, although the working title is believed to be titled Greenbrier.
Although Aaron’s latest venture will be a follow up to the American channel AMC, Netflix have acquired the rights to air the movie first on their platform.
Albuquerque Journal previously reported the Breaking Bad sequel would air at the end of 2018 in New Mexico before making its way across the pond.
