Theo Rossi Hints At New ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Project: “It’s Totally Different. It’s Really Cool”; Upcoming Film ‘Carry On’ Is An Homage To ‘Die Hard’

We’ve already seen the Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans M.C. and creator Kurt Sutter has been hinting for some time that there might be more SoA in the pipeline, even specifying a couple of years back that he wants to explore the story of Jax’s son, Abel.
Now it seems SoA‘s return could be pretty soon, according to hints dropped by Theo Rossi during a panel discussion about Emily the Criminal at Soho Works in Los Angeles on Friday.
“There might be something coming up where we’re all back together, which is insane,” Rossi told Deadline. “Charlie [Hunnam]’s gonna announce something soon. If it happens, it’s wild, but if it doesn’t it would be perfect and really cool because we also talk every day.”
When asked if this might be an idea for a Sons of Anarchy movie, Rossi smiled cryptically and said, “It’s totally different. It’s really cool.”
In the original show about the world of SAMCRO, Rossi played Juice Ortiz, who died in the episode “Red Rose” in the show’s final seventh season, while Hunnam played protagonist Jax Teller. The show came to an end in December 2014.
Rossi also noted that while the show was a huge hit with fans, the industry didn’t award it or seem to take much note at the time. “We knew that we were in something that was rarefied air,” he said. “We were the people’s champ. Everybody loved us, but no one in Hollywood gave a s**t about us. The executives, none of them watched it, they didn’t care. But we couldn’t walk two seconds without people being super-hyped that we were all together and we were all friends. We knew we were on something special and different, very different from Mad Men, very different from a lot of the shows that were going on.”
Rossi is currently up for an Independent Spirit Award
