Julien Temple was one of the first filmmakers on the scene when punk erupted in the UK. He chose to follow the Sex Pistols, and that led to the definitive Pistols film, 2000’s The Filth and the Fury. But he spent some time with the Clash early on, and two decades later he formed a close friendship with Joe Strummer. Thanks in part to Strummer’s tendency to embellish, his story is a convoluted one. But after his death in 2002, Temple set out to get to the core of it. Here’s some of what he told me about The Future Is Unwritten.
