"Sons of Anarchy prequel – please!"

This has been the collective cry of devastated Sons of Anarchy fans since the show's final episode aired in December, 2014.

Not only is the Sons of Anarchy prequel in the works, but no less than a mega star playing the new lead role. As Crossmap reported, Charlie Hunnam will most likely reprise his role as Jax Teller in the Sons of Anarchy prequel, but the main role will be played by Brad Pitt as John Teller, Jax's father and one of the founding members of the motorcycle gang.

Fans have wondered whether Charlie Hunnam would be put out by the thought of being overshadowed by such an A-list celebrity in the Sons of Anarchy prequel, but always the professional, Charlie is thrilled that the Sons of Anarchy prequel will be headlined by such a huge name.

Even back in January, 2015, Charlie Hunnam spoke with Men's Journal about Producer Kurt Sutter's plans for a Sons of Anarchy prequel.

"He's trying to do a prequel, which I would love to see. Kurt is trying to get it going. Did you read that about Brad Pitt maybe playing my dad? Brad Pitt as John Teller. How awesome would that be?"
"I love that guy, but it was hard for us to work together sometimes because we're both crazy f***s. Kurt and I never blasted each other in the face, but I'll say it got close. There has been security rushing onto set and pulling us apart before."
