Jonathan Banks has confirmed that he will return as Mike Ehrmantraut for the upcoming “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie”.
Speaking with ET Canada, Banks was asked if he would appear to which he whispered “yes” and added: “They’ll hit me in the head for saying this, but yes, why not? None of those guys hit very hard anyway.”
Banks’ character died on screen in the film, meaning his involvement confirms that there will be flashbacks to events within the series. Banks also appears in the prequel series “Better Call Saul”.
Vince Gilligan helms the new film which begins in the wake of Jesse Pinkman’s dramatic escape from captivity as he must come to terms with his past in order to forge some kind of future.
The film will be available for streaming on October 11th exclusively on Netflix, though will also have a few days limited run in cinemas.
