Metastasis Breaking Bad

Feeling a void in your life now that "Breaking Bad" is over? Do you have a serviceable knowledge of Spanish? Well, you can get set to go down the meth drama road all over again as "Breaking Bad" is back, kind of, with a Spanish-language remake, though it may prove that copies are never as good as the original.

Entitled "Metastasis," the Colombian show has Diego Trujillo in the the role of Walter Blanco (ha), the chemistry teacher who breaks bad. Jesse (Jose, played by Roberto Urbina), Skyler (Cielo, played by Sandra Reyes) and Hank (Henry, played by Julian Arango) are all here too, but one thing that isn't? An RV. "Motor homes are not popular in Colombia," Angelica Guerra, Sony's Senior VP and managing director of production for Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market said. "So audiences will see Walter and Jose cooking up their first several batches of methamphetamine in an old, barely drivable school bus."

As for the trailer, it looks like a "Saturday Night Live" parody of the show, but that might just be due to the absolutely ridiculous voiceover, though the low production values don't seem to be helping much either.

In other related news: Norm MacDonald (of all people) is one of a handful pushing the theory that the finale was actually a fantasy that takes place in Walter White's dying mind (FilmDrunk has the full breakdown). Meanwhile, Beutler Ink has put together a periodic elements table based on the show, which you can check out below. And if you like, hit their site for details on how to buy it. [THR/Bleeding Cool]
