Whatever’s worth doing, is worth doing right.
EW has confirmed that FX’s much-anticipated spinoff of Sons of Anarchy that will focus on the Mayans motorcycle club will be re-shot and that some of the cast members will be replaced. It’s unclear who will stay and who will go in the project that’s headlined by Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).
In the meantime, a new director and executive producer will join SOA creator Kurt Sutter and co-executive producer Elgin James in revamping the Mayans MC pilot: Norberto Barba from The Bridge and Preacher.
The pilot is set in a post-Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes — a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border — struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves. The Mayans were recurring and pivotal players during SOA‘s seven-year run.
Sutter posted this tweet today:
Deadline was the first to report the news.
