'Sons of Anarchy' fans will be pleased to learn that the show's executive producer Kurt Sutter has a brand new project already in the works. And while the storyline is nothing like 'SOA,' it promises to contain just as much (if not more) violence.
According to Deadline, FX has greenlit a pilot for Sutter's period drama, 'The Bastard Executioner,' which tells the story of a warrior knight in King Edward III’s charge who vows to lay down his sword and retire from the horrible ravages of war. Unfortunately, that's a lot easier said than done and a ton of bloodshed ensues. (Though you probably picked up on that just from the title.)
For his part, Sutter is absolutely thrilled to be joining FX again in this upcoming project, where he will be teaming up with producer Brian Grazer. The two plan to start work on the pilot soon after 'Sons' wraps its seventh and final season. “I love the network. I love the world. I love the blood,” Sutter told the site.
And the network itself seems equally pleased with the partnership. "[Sutter] has conceived a deep, provocative and historically precise narrative journey into our medieval past," FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. "I have no doubt 'Bastard Executioner' will be another remarkably original and gripping series."
