John Linson has worked with some of the industry's most talented and influential artists, starting out by producing music videos for bands such as Nirvana and Guns and Roses.
He moved on to producing studio feature films, including Alfonso Cuarón’s Great Expectations starring Robert DeNiro and Gwyneth Paltrow, Lords of Dogtown starring Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch and The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. He is currently producing The Outsider at Warner Bros. with Daniel Espinosa attached to direct.
Riding motorcycles since he was a teenager inspired his desire to develop a series set in the outlaw biker world. He approached Kurt Sutter to write it and thus Sons of Anarchy was born.
John is presently in partnership with Art Linson in The Linson Company which is developing several upcoming films and television shows.
