Danny Boyle on The Sex Pistols (Esquire Magazine UK)

Post by DobroMojo »

An article by film director Danny Boyle on The Sex Pistols (from the Summer 2022 UK edition of men's magazine Esquire). The issue also features an Elvis front cover and special feature, coinciding with the release of Baz Luhrmann's movie: https://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=112806

Coincidently, Australian screenwriter Craig Pearce, who has been a long term collaborator of Baz Luhrmann's and co-wrote the screenplay for the upcoming "Elvis" movie, is also the screenwriter for Danny Boyle's upcoming Sex Pistols biopic TV series "Pistol".

This was a great share (by request), thank you so much.

Danny Boyle is not usually on my radar, despite my enjoyment of more than one of his films. I had not idea about "Pistol" coming up this month as a six-part streaming series, and I will absolutely be watching. I lived with that band as much as anyone I know. Olivia Ovenden did a really nice job with the interview, she seemed to have an easy and instant rapport with Boyle, and I came away liking him more than I imagined.

Going down, down, out of my head
I did you no wrong

No problem. Yep i'll definitely be watching the series aswell, i love a lot of Danny Boyle's work.

John Lydon isn't too happy about the series though:

Not surprised about Johnny, but he also avoided an invitation to confer with Danny.

I noticed in the magazine article the same adherence to the historical record as we're seeing with Baz.


Specifically, this:

That's cool to know. My knowledge of the Sex Pistols isn't great, so i'm looking forward to learning something.

John Lydon was interviewed a couple of weeks ago and made a rare positive comment on Elvis, calling Heartbreak Hotel "Pure genius".
