St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein Are Working on a Comedy Film Together
They will co-star as exaggerated versions on themselves
Published Apr 17, 2019St. Vincent and Carrie Brownstein are reportedly working on a movie together. After a string of collaborations over the years, the pair are upping the ante by teaming up for a full-blown feature.
St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) and Brownstein co-wrote the as-yet-untitled script, Collider reports. The two will be playing exaggerated versions of themselves, and the film will focus on their touring life. It's apparently not a "mockumentary," but a "scripted film that was to have been shot like a documentary." (That, of course, sounds like exactly what a mockumentary is, so who knows.)
Bill Benz — who previously collaborated with Brownstein on her comedy series Portlandia — is in line to direct. It's being developed by Topic Studios, although it sounds like production is still a ways off.
Assuming this project goes ahead as planned, it will be the latest in a long string of team-ups between Clark and Brownstein. Clark has appeared on Portlandia various times, they made some comedic Instagram videos a few months back, and Clark produced the forthcoming album from Brownstein's band Sleater-Kinney. They even co-wrote some songs way back in the day.
