In early 2018, while Paul was in New York shooting The Path, Gilligan called him and shared that he had written a movie about Jesse. "I'm like everybody else on the planet — I think Vince and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that?" Paul recalls thinking. "But it's Vince we're talking about. I would follow Vince into a fire. That's how much I trust the man. I would do anything that he asked me to."
That looks like a legit movie alright. Super impressed by the production values. Great trailer and hype through the roof now.
It does look amazing and I expect nothing less from Vince Gilligan. But it still gives us very little about the plot, which is both a good thing and a bad thing for me personally. Good, because I want to go into the film fresh, but frustrating because I don't understand the essential need for the film. It has to be more than just the police chasing after Jesse, right? That wouldn't seem like a good enough plot to bring this film into existence 6 years after a perfect finale.
