Julie Delpy Will Direct Joe Strummer Biopic

Yesterday NYMag reported that Julie Delpy, director of Beyond Sunrise and Beyond Sunset, has signed on to direct The Right Profile, the upcoming biopic about The Clash frontman Joe Strummer. Delpy’s involvement comes after a two-year period of relative inactivity since the relative failure of her last film The Countess.

The Right Profile will allegedly focus on Strummer’s life from 1982 until his death in late 2002, but no official details about the actual storyline have surfaced yet. There is also no word on who will play Strummer in the film.

Who would you like to see play the punk rock icon on the big screen?
