Although Sid Vicious' early contributions to the Sex Pistols were covered in 'Sid and Nancy', there's been no recent adaptation of their impact on culture or music.
That's all changing, however, with 'Trainspotting' director Danny Boyle taking on an adaptation of Steve Jones' memoir, 'Lonely Boy: Tales From A Sex Pistol', released in 2017.
The six-part series, titled 'Pistol', is being directed by Boyle and will feature a script written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Craig Pearce, who wrote '24 Hour Party People' and 'Moulin Rouge!' respectively.
As for casting, 'Babyteeth' star Toby Wallace will play Steve Jones, while Anson Boon - last seen in 'Dunkirk', and alligator horror movie 'Crawl' - will play John Lydon. Dylan Llewellyn from 'Derry Girls' will play Wally Nightingale, one of the early guitarists in the Sex Pistols, while 'Game of Thrones' alum Maisie Williams will play Pamela Rooke, better known as Jordan, often described as the 'face of punk' in the late '70s.
So far, no air date has been set for the series, but expect this to have a lot of interest. For now, here's 'Problems' from the Sex Pistols' only album, 'Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols'.
