'All Is Lost' Director J.C. Chandor To Tackle Biopic About Legendary Green Bay Packers Coach Vince Lombardi

In terms of awards heat and critical acclaim, “All Is Lost” director J.C. Chandor is two-for-two and though he’s already gearing up to head into production on his third feature -- the Jessica Chastain-starring “A Most Violent Year” -- is already locking down his fourth directorial outing.

Vince Lombardi J.C. Chandor

In terms of awards heat and critical acclaim, “All Is Lost” director J.C. Chandor is two-for-two and though he’s already gearing up to head into production on his third feature—the Jessica Chastain-starring “A Most Violent Year”—is already locking down his fourth directorial outing.

Deadline reports Legendary Pictures—soon departing Warner Bros. for Universal -- has their eye on a film about legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi to follow-up this year’s Jackie Robinson biopic, “42.” Chandor’s been tapped to write the screenplay only but “with an eye to direct.” As is usually the case.

It’s impossible to overstate just how iconic a figure Lombardi is in the world of football—the Super Bowl trophy is named for him after all—so we don’t envy Chandor’s task in humanizing the man. Maybe he can rope in Robert Redford for a reunion? “All Is Lost” is in theaters now.
