Delpy Not Helpy

A starburst of activity blazed across the internet last Wednesday (23 November) when it was reported that French indie-cinema legend Julie Delpy (of Three Colours trilogy and Europa Europa fame), had been signed up to produce the forthcoming biopic of Clash frontman Joe Strummer.

The film, which will focus on the weeks around his mysterious disappearance in December 1982, has been kept largely under wraps so far, but generated a lot of buzz online. Sadly for us, it seems that the surge of news reports were false – Delpy is not yet signed up, and her management were forced to put out a statement denying the rumours. There remains no word, either, on who is to play Strummer, but the project has a name: The Right Profile, and is due to commence shooting sometime in 2012.
