Jean-Marc Vallée to Direct John Lennon Bio-Pic

Jean-Marc Vallée is so busy these days that one tends to forget he hasn't directed an actual movie in 4 years, that would be 2015's "Demolition." His success in Hollywood with “Dallas Buyers Club,” and “Wild,” has led to two popular HBO shows: “Big Little Lies” and “Sharp Objects.” So what's next for him? How about tackling the John Lennon and Yoko Ono story.
According to Deadline, Vallée will direct the Ono/Lennon biopic for Universal. In fact, he wanted to make the film so badly that he took himself out of the running for "Bond 25" for which he was put on the shortlist by Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.
