Kurt Sutter Announces Plans For ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Movie Starring Charlie Hunnam, Brad Pitt

Hollywood, California –

Kurt Sutter, creator of the hit FX drama Sons of Anarchy, has announced plans to turn the popular television series into a major motion picture.

Sutter, who was also a writer, producer, and director on the series, said in an interview with Hollywood Today magazine that he has long contemplated taking S.O.A. to the big screen following its run on television. “People absolutely loved the show, as did I, and I have put a lot of thought into the matter, and we are going forward with turning it into a feature film” Sutter said.

Sons of Anarchy ran for seven seasons on FX, from 2008-2014, and in the process built a huge following.  Sutter said the film will star Charlie Hunnam, who played the lead character Jax Teller, as well as Ryan Hurst who played Opie Winston, and Katey Sagal as Gemma Teller. The film, which is a prequel to the storyline of Sons will also introduce fans to Jax’s father, John, who will be played by Brad Pitt.

“I am most excited about bringing Brad (Pitt) on as John Teller, he is absolutely perfect for the role. The movie will take place from the day Jax was born, and leads up to the era just before Sons Of Anarchy began as a series.”

Opie

Sutter also said that he is really happy to bring Ryan Hurst back as Opie Winston, and hopes fans will forgive him for killing Opie off. “Man I tell ya, when we killed Opie off, it was like the thing turned real. I’ve never gone public with this, but I’ve had people get really crazy when they see me in public,” said Sutter. “They shout at me, and they get angry – ‘You shouldn’t have killed Ope! I hope you rot in Hell!,’ that sort of thing. I had people try to run me off the road when they recognized me, although that just might be because I’m kind of a dangerous driver. Anyway, my hope is that this film will help them cope.”

 

Sutter says pre-production on film will begin in the middle of 2015, and will begin shooting sometime in the fall. “For a movie of this scope, with this much storyline attached, you should expect to see the film by the end of 2016,” said Sutter. “In the mean time, buy all the official Sons of Anarchy merchandise you can. Every dollar goes to helping get this movie completed. Brad Pitt isn’t cheap, you know.”

  1. As a prequal:
    Don’t you gotta use one of the kids that came in the last season as jax!
    Jax can’t be shown as adult due to he wasn’t fully grown with father around!
    You messing up whole sequal

  2. really wish you make it over TV series than a movie because it’s like cheaper not by much but I rather see you do that and I’m a big fan of your writing and everything you’re a good actor and a good film writer

  3. thanks Kurt for listening to the fans on SON’s, I miss it and seem to have nothing to look forward to ,since Son’s is off TV. That was my all time favorite show, ever. I wouldn’t plan anything on Tuesday night because I had to watch SOA. Again, thanks Kurt, you are a genius, all my friends watched and would talk about it on Wednesday’s….. Karen

  4. What a brilliant idea, I think it will be a hit with all, some people didn’t have the privilege of watching the series. I just couldn’t get enough of SOA, LOVED all of them.

  5. Yeah!!!! Can’t wait…when is it on the big screen. ..looking forward to seeing all the characters from SOA…

  6. Sorry Mr Sutter bit Brad just can’t replace Jax truthful only Charlie is Jax an it wouldn’t be the same someone else playing the role of a man we all come to love .

  7. I am a huge fan of the sons I even bought the rings off amazon I believe killing Opie not only made things interesting but also took the show on a new level I hope to see more from Sutter in the future his mind is brilliant and I’m sure the movie is going to be a blast I’m exited to see jemma in her early years (his wife is hot) good luck Sutter hope to see more of your creative mind

  8. cant wait to see it cause i am a big fan , but i am a bit desapointed cause i would of rather see the serie back on with jax waking up from a coma with his 2 son on his side with the rest of the crew left still alive by his side then see the sons of jax taking over the chapter with jax by there side cause after all no one saw jax die we all presume he was dead but oh well at list we will see the sons again thanx kurt 🙂

  9. I’m so excited that Kurt is making soa on the big screen. He also made a awesome deicion to have Brad Pitt to play J.T. concerning Charlie and Brad look like actual father and son. I’m so happy that he brought Ryan Hurst back I haven’t been so angry when that Kurt killed him off the show. Thank you Kurt for making it all up for us fans. I’m so dedicated to the show I gotten the reaper tattoo on my left forearm lol. I can’t wait for movie to come out…

    • I would love to think on my fantasy ending of SOA that Jax did not die, he somehow crashed his bike, bike slid and hit the semi and he was hospitalized and served a prison term. Jax then emerges after a 20 yr sentence???

  11. Please don’t. The series got more and more desperate as it went on. It became ridiculous after season 1. Let’s just put the whole sorry mess behind us and move on.

  12. Omg I love this. I am such a fan of the sons. I just wish Jax would be in it. I would love to be part of this. It’s about time .

  15. I would love to think on my fantasy ending of SOA that Jax did not die, he somehow crashed his bike, bike slid and hit the semi and he was hospitalized and served a prison term. Jax then emerges after a 20 yr sentence???

  16. Are you people stupid and illiterate? The “article” was written the first week of 2015 and literally says it should be released mid-2016. Its fucking november and not a mention that they even cast the movie but you morons keep posting “i can’t wait” and “this is awesome”. Here’s a thought you morons…. READ THE FUCKING ARTICLE AND YOU WONT LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS!!!

  17. Here we are at the end of 2016…no SOA movie has been announced. Although, I am excited for the Mayans spinoff. I wonder if any “surviving” members(Chibs, Tig, Rat, etc) from SOA will be part of the spinoff?!!?
