A Sex Pistols biopic is officially in the works

Following the success of the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, it seems every big-name musician is looking to get some on-screen action. A Motley Crüe biopic has just been released, an Elton John biopic is on the way, and now it has been revealed that a Sex Pistols film is also in the works.

Forming in 1975, the legendary UK punk band had an undeniably large impact on what punk music would become, so it will, of course, be interesting to see how this story translates to screen.

Following the success of Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody biopic, it looks like the Sex Pistols will be the next musical act to hit the big screen.

NME reports that the new biopic has already been in the works for 18 months, and while filming is yet to commence, the casting process is set to begin in the near future.

In an interview with The Daily Star, filmmaker Ayesha Plunkett said: “We were impressed by the box office takings for Bohemian Rhapsody. It only goes to show the public has an appetite for these films.

Details surrounding the plot are still yet to be confirmed, though it’s expected to centre largely around the band’s manager Malcolm McLaren and fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.
