In which we suggest who should star in the next big adaptation, remake, or historical film.
Next year, Julie Delpy (Before Sunset, Before Sunrise, 2 Days in Paris) will direct The Right Profile, a biopic spanning two decades of The Clash frontman Joe Strummer’s regretfully short life. Active in the late ’70s yet perennially relevant, The Clash established the spirit of British punk that still resonates with young politically-inclined acts of today. Picking up at 1982, the film will cover less of The Clash in action and more of the band, well, clashing. After a series of unceremonious band-member firings beneath the weight of a world-famously oppressive manager, we think a few of Strummer’s heyday friends will resurface as major characters.
