Following on from the announcement of upcoming Danny Boyle-directed TV series Pistol, a first look at the show has been unveiled.
Principal photography has officially started now on the highly-anticipated Sex Pistols biopic, which features Toby Wallace as Steve Jones, Anson Boon as John Lydon, Louis Partridge as Sid Vicious, Jacob Slater as Paul Cook, and Christian Lees as Glen Matlock.

The Sex Pistols.
