Pistols – set for release next year – is based on the legendary rock band – consisting of Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Glen Matlock, Paul Cook and Sid Vicious – and their rise to fame in the 1970s.

In the TV series, Anson will play Johnny Rotten, Louis Partridge will portray bassist Sid Vicious, Jacob Slater will star as drummer Paul Cook and Toby Wallace will portray guitarist Steve Jones.    

The cast looked in good spirits as they appeared to cause chaos on set and were joined by film director Danny.   

Earlier this month the star-studded line-up for the drama was revealed, with Iris Law announced to be following in her father Jude and brother Rafferty’s acting footsteps.

The model, 20, is making her screen debut as Soo Catwoman, one of the icons of the punk scene who became a rising star in the 1970s, and she joins Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Talulah Riley, and Christian Lees as new cast members in Pistol.

A first look image for the TV series, which is based on the memoir of Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, was also revealed following the casting announcement.

Soo Lucas, who dubbed herself Soo Catwoman, is known for her trademark haircut which she created in 1976 to look like she had cat ears.

The hairdo is set to be a very different look for Iris, who usually sports long brunette curls, though she may well wear a wig to emulate Soo’s iconic hairstyle.

Thomas is set to take on the role of Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, while Talulah will play fashion icon Vivienne Westwood, and Christian will portray the band’s first bass guitarist Glen Matlock.

The six-episode series began principal photography earlier this month, and Danny serves as director and Executive Producer.   

Based on Jones’ 2018 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, the supporting cast also includes Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams as punk icon Jordan as well as Sydney Chandler as Chrissie Hynde and Emma Appleton as Nancy Spungen.

Anchored by Steve Jones’ memoir, which offers a fascinating new perspective on one of rock’s greatest ever stories, Pistol moves from West London’s council estates, to Westwood and McLaren’s notorious Kings Road SEX shop, to the international controversy that came with the release of Never Mind the B******s.

Their single ‘God Save the Queen’ was banned by the BBC and reached Number 1 on the UK’s NME chart, but appeared at Number 2 on the Official UK Singles chart, leading to accusations that the song was purposely kept off the top spot.

Boyle has had an acclaimed TV and movie career. His 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire was nominated for ten Academy Awards and won eight, including the Academy Award for Best Director.

In 2012, Boyle was the artistic director for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics. He was subsequently offered a knighthood as part of the New Year Honours but declined.

In January, Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment, said in a statement: ‘It’s great to be back in business with Danny Boyle, an exceptional artist responsible for so many great feature films and TV series.’ 

‘Steve Jones was at the center of the storm that shook the rock establishment and we’re thrilled to have Danny and the rest of the creative team tell his story as a member of one of music’s most notorious bands – the Sex Pistols.’

‘Imagine breaking into the world of The Crown and Downton Abbey with your mates and screaming your songs and your fury at all they represent,’ added Boyle. ‘This is the moment that British society and culture changed forever.’

‘It is the detonation point for British street culture…where ordinary young people had the stage and vented their fury and their fashion…and everyone had to watch & listen…and everyone feared them or followed them.’

‘The Sex Pistols. At its centre was a young charming illiterate kleptomaniac – a hero for the times – Steve Jones, who became in his own words, the 94th greatest guitarist of all time. This is how he got there.’

Pistols will be released on FX and Hulu in 2022.
