Julie Delpy to direct Joe Strummer biopic

French Actress and director Julie Delpy is to direct The Right Profile, a biopic of late The Clash front man Joe Strummer.

The Right Profile is a title from a song taken from the English punk band's 1979 album, London Calling .

The film will focus on Joe Strummer's life and his planned disappearance from the spotlight in 1982.

The singer went into hiding just before the release of the band's fifth album Combat Rock which was the last with the original line-up.

The 2 Days In Paris actress may also star in the movie, though the lead man is yet to be cast.

Julie Delpy has recently directed and starred in comedy sequel 2 Days In New York , which is expected to open at some point next year.
