Jason Lee to direct Time travelling love triangle film involving John and Yoko

Posted by LiveFor on November 19, 2009

I’ve always liked Jason Lee. I first saw him in Kevin Smith’s Mallrats and have enjoyed pretty much everything he has done – Almost Famous, My Name is Earl was great. The whole scientology thing sucks as did Alvin and the Chipmunks but I still dig him.

Now it looks as if he is getting behind the camera to direct his first feature. It is called Get Back and it tells the story of two music-obsessed friends who time travel back to 1966 London, where one gets caught in a love triangle with John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Sounds pretty cool and could be rather funny.

The article over on THR also mentions Lee’s new TV show. Called Delta Blues, from George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures and Warner Horizon, it centers on Dwight Hendricks (Lee), a Memphis police officer who lives with his mother and moonlights as an Elvis impersonator.

What do you think of those two projects?
