Lydon Signs On For More Movie Bollocks

Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon is in the midst of wrapping up his second film deal in less than two weeks.

According to his manager, Lydon is finishing up a movie deal with a British company for a Sex Pistols-produced documentary, comprised of all archival footage of the Pistols filmed from 1976 to 1978.

As we previously reported (see "Johnny Rotten Film In The Works"), the former Johnny Rotten has also clinched a deal to oversee the development of a script based on his autobiography, "Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks No Dogs."

Lydon's agreement on that project will have him involved in selecting the screenwriter, director and cast members, although he will not be playing himself.

That as-yet-untitled film will focus on the Pistols and the social circumstances surrounding their rise to punk infamy in the '70s.

Meanwhile, Lydon is now in Los Angeles shooting what his management refers to as a "significant

cameo role" in "The Independent," a film about the motion picture industry starring Janeane Garofalo.
