What has Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter been up to since SoA finished up its run on FX? He’s been busy scouting locations in Wales for his new series The Bastard Executioner which, according to the International Business Times, will begin shooting next month. Sutter, who retweeted the IBT article, will be reuniting with Sons of Anarchy producer/director Paris Barclay on the new project which is set in the 14th century. Executive producer Barclay will direct the pilot with Sutter writing and executive producing.

Katey Sagal has confirmed she’ll play a role in The Bastard Executioner, however there’s no word yet on her character.

According to FX, The Bastard Executioner is a “period drama that tells the story of a warrior knight in King Edward II’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.”
