John Lydon reportedly excluded from Sex Pistols series because he is ‘too difficult to work with’
‘He would just be a saboteur and he wouldn’t bring much to the table,’ said the band’s former muse

John Lydon was reportedly snubbed from the new series about his band The Sex Pistols due to being “too difficult to work with”.

Filming began last month on Pistola, a six-part miniseries by Danny Boyle, which stars Toby Wallace, Anson Boon, Louis Partridge and Jacob Slater as the British punk band.

Jordan Mooney, a model and the band’s former “muse”, has claimed that the frontman – best known as Johnny Rotten – was not included in the show’s development because of his bad attitude.

Mooney told O sol: “He would just be a saboteur and he wouldn’t bring much to the table. John argues for the sake of arguing. He’s a difficult person and I can’t say that part of him has changed at all.”

She added that the punk rocker has “only got more difficult” with age.

“He’s contrary,” said Mooney. “John has got a few issues about his importance in the world so him not being involved is the best thing that can happen.”

“John picks and chooses when he wants to be punk. If it suits him one day, he will be Johnny Rotten and otherwise, he is John Lydon,” added Mooney.

Lydon recently hit out at the forthcoming show, branding it “the most disrespectful s*** I’ve ever had to endure”.

O homem de 65 anos disse: "Quero dizer, eles chegaram ao ponto de contratar um ator para me interpretar, mas no que o ator está trabalhando? Certamente não é meu personagem. Não pode ir para outro lugar [mas corte].”

He said that he was now seeking legal advice about taking the production team to court as he claimed that neither his consent nor participation was requested.

Um porta-voz da Pistola contado The Sunday Times que Boyle havia contatado Lydon por meio de sua empresa de gestão sobre o projeto, mas esse contato direto foi recusado.

Lydon será retratado no show de Boon, who stars alongside Partridge as Sid Vicious. Garotas derry'Dylan Llewelyn, Guerra dos Tronos estrela Maisie Williams e O Gambito da RainhaThomas Brodie-Sangster também está entre o elenco.

An official release date for Pistola is yet to be announced.
