Diego Trujillo plays the Colombian version of Walter White, with Robert Urbina as his partner-in-crime Jose Miguel Rosas and Sandra Reyes as his wife Cielo.
The success of "Breaking Bad" does not only spawn the upcoming Saul Goodman spin-off but also a Spanish-language version titled "Metastasis". On the heels of the series end, a trailer for the remake is released, introducing the Colombian version of Walter White.
Diego Trujillo plays Walter Blanco, the chemistry teacher-turned-meth cook. Robert Urbina stars as Jose Miguel Rosas (Jesse Pinkman) and Sandra Reyes plays Cielo (Skyler White). Meanwhile, the colombian version of Walt's DEA agent brother-in-law Hank will be called Henry.
The show will stay true to its source material with some adjustment. Sony Pictures Television senior VP Angelica Guerra gives an example, "Motor homes are not popular in Colombia, so audiences will see Walter and Jose cooking up their first several batches of methamphetamine in an old, barely drivable school bus."
Sony has sold the first season of the series to major Latin American markets and Univision's American UniMas network. Guerra explains to The Hollywood Reporter why she thinks this remake will be well received by Hispanic audience, " 'Breaking Bad' is a fantastic series that wasn't widely seen in Latin America, partly because cable doesn't yet have full penetration in the region. [But] there is a universality to the story and its characters that we recognized could work very well."
