Danny Boyle to direct Sex Pistols series
'Trainspotting' director Danny Boyle is to make a six-part TV series about Sex Pistols, based on guitarist Steve Jones's memoir, IndieWire reports. It will star Anson Boon as John Lydon and Louis Partridge as Sid Vicious. Jones's memoir 'Lonely Boy: Tales From A Sex Pistol' goes beyond his time with the band, beginning with his life in West London. It deals also with the band's struggle with criticism and living up to their image, as well as addiction.
