Award-winning Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has died at the age of 58, his publicist said on Sunday.

“Rest in peace, Jean-Marc Vallée. The world is a lot less interesting without you,” Hive Communication Collective wrote on Instagram.

The Quebec producer and director was nominated for an Oscar for “Dallas Buyers Club” in 2013, for which actors Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both won Oscars.

In recent years, he has been acclaimed for his work on the HBO Emmy Award-winning “Big Little Lies” and “Sharp Objects” shows.

Even if you’ve never heard of Jean-Marc Vallée, you’ve almost certainly seen his work as a TV director on “Big Little Lies” and “Sharp Objects” or his films like “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Wild”.

The cause of death was not immediately known.

I took that of Jean-Marc Vallée in 2019 in Careyes, Mexico, during the ArteCareyes film festival. He was touching and generous and loved music more than anything. He had always wanted to be a rock star. At MTL, we ride road bikes to Leonard Cohen’s house. He was one of the coolest I have ever met. pic.twitter.com/4UlzHqV0IY

“Jean-Marc Vallée was a brilliant and fiercely dedicated filmmaker,” the company said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.
