Jean-Marc Vallée, acclaimed director of ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ and ‘Big Little Lies,’ dies at age 58

Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, as well as the HBO series Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects, has died at the age of 58.  Vallée died suddenly over the weekend in his cabin near Quebec City, from what appears to have been a heart attack.  In a statement announcing his passing, Vallée’s longtime producer partner Nathan Ross wrote: “Jean-Marc stood for creativity, authenticity and trying things differently. He was a true artist and a generous, loving guy. Everyone who worked with him couldn’t help but see the talent and vision he possessed. He was a friend, creative partner and an older brother to me. The maestro will sorely be missed but it comforts knowing his beautiful style and impactful work he shared with the world will live on.”

Vallée directed Dallas Buyers Club, which earned six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Film Editing (which Vallée received under his alias John Mac McMurphy).  Matthew McConaughey won the Oscar for Best Actor, and Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor for their roles in the film.

Vallée next directed Wild, an adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, starring Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, who were both later recognized with Oscar nominations.  Vallée reunited with Witherspoon in 2017 for the HBO series Big Little Lies, a murder mystery based on Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same name. Vallée served as director and executive producer of the series.

Vallée is survived by his sons, Alex and Émile, and siblings Marie-Josée Vallée, Stéphane Tousignant and Gérald Vallée.

Hugh Jackman shared that he has tested positive for Covid-19. The two-time Tony Award winner, who will star in the upcoming revival of “The Music Man” on Broadway (set to open in February) announced his diagnosis Tuesday via a video on his verified social media accounts.

The caption to the video read: “Just wanted you to hear it from me. I tested positive for covid. Mild symptoms and as soon as I’m cleared … looking forward to getting back to The Winter Garden!   Jackman said during the video: “My symptoms are like a cold. I have a scratchy throat and a bit of a runny nose, but I’m fine.”

Jackman recently paid tribute to understudies on Broadway after Kathy Voytko, Sutton Foster’s understudy as Marian Paroo in “The Music Man,” filled in for Foster on short notice after Foster tested positive. In a video captured by a member of the show’s audience and posted on social media, Jackman asked the understudies to join him on stage and called them “the bedrock of Broadway.”

Jackman remained upbeat while sharing his Covid-19 diagnosis, and urged others to “stay safe, be healthy, be kind” while promising to return to the stage as soon as he is feeling well.
