Jean-Marc Vallee: A Canadian Filmmaker Dies at the Age of 58
A Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallee whose films include Dallas Buyers Club and Wild has died at the age of 58.
We’re hearing from multiple sources the death of filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée was the result of a heart attack, while in his cabin on a river near Quebec City, where he was preparing to receive guests the following day. It is therefore likely that he passed away on December 25 and was found the next day. A teetotaler and fitness fanatic, Vallée practiced the Wim Hoff fitness method, which is not for the faint of heart. The official cause of death is to be released soon.
Hive Communication Collective wrote on Instagram, “Rest in Peace, Jean-Marc Vallee. Your absence makes the world a less interesting place.”
