Boyle's plan to make a limited series based on the iconic punk band's guitarist Steve Jones’ memoir Lonely Boy has ticked off the infamously temperamental Lydon. “Sorry, you think you can do this, like walk all over me — it isn’t going to happen. Not without a huge, enormous f*cking fight,” he told The Sunday Times. “I’m Johnny, you know, and when you interfere with my business you’re going to get the bitter end of my business as a result. It’s a disgrace. I fronted this band. I’m the man that wrote the words. I supplied the image and direction, and I think the questions hang on their actions here. If they needed to be this secret squirrel about it then they must have something to hide." The Sunday Times reports, however, that Boyle did try to reach out to Lydon.
