Breaking Bad movie El Camino: Director admits film will be VERY confusing for this reason

According to the director and producer Vincent Gilligan, non-Breaking Bad viewers are going to severely struggle with the new Netflix film. The writer warned the public the TV show’s sequel wouldn’t even attempt to explain the events of the HBO programme and what happened to ex-Chemistry teacher Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston). The story will instead pick up exactly where the series finale left off, and viewers will finally get to see where Jesse (Aaron Paul) went after being on the run from the DEA. It’s assumed he survives at least, but who does Jesse meet along his journey following Walt’s death? And how will his story end for a second time?

The film’s producers have remained extremely tight-lipped about exactly where Jesse has been since the show concluded, and when the movie kicks off, Jesse’s whereabouts are unknown at first.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Vincent then explained: “We don’t slow down to explain things to a non-Breaking Bad audience.

“I thought early on in the writing of the script, ‘Maybe there’s a way to have my cake and eat it too.

“Maybe there’s a way to explain things to the audience.’

“If there was a way to do that, it eluded me,” the writer added.

A new theory has also teased Jesse’s turning point in Breaking Bad, and it comes from season three episode seven, called One Minute, wherein the character questioned his entire life and blamed Heisenberg for everything going wrong.

A few episodes before this Jesse had faced his responsibility after being released from rehab, but that was the one thing Walt could never do.

Jesse told his business partner: “You either run from things, or you face them, Mr. White.

“I learned it in rehab.

“It’s all about accepting who you really are. I accept who I am. I’m the bad guy.”

“I can’t be the bad guy.”

Despite his declarations however, throughout the rest of the series, Jesse was often affected by his guilt and actions, while Walt continued to be in his denial, right up until the end.

Jesse went through quite a journey on the series, often facing loss and struggling to carry on, but it finally seemed like he was free after Walter’s death.

Will the former meth cook continue on his path to redemption in the film?

Or will he remain haunted by Walt?

Breaking Bad: El Camino is released on Netflix October 11.
