St. Vincent Directs Horror Film as Part of 'XX' Anthology
Published Apr 12, 2016St. Vincent generally delivers thrills with her art rock-favouring albums, but she'll soon be delivering chills on the big screen. The musician born Annie Clark has confirmed she's directed part of an upcoming horror anthology called XX.
Clark tweeted out her involvement in the project today (April 12), explaining that she's written and directed part of the film. The poster for XX teases "four deadly tales by four killer women." Also involved are directors Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Girlfight, Jennifer's Body), Jennifer Lynch (Surveillance) and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird).
An interview with Kusama has her noting that both her and Vuckovic's contributions have been completed. St. Vincent's portion, which was co-written with Roxanne Benjamin, is expected to be filmed this spring.
"The films are very different," Kusama told Killer POV [via Consequence of Sound], "but there are overriding anxieties about female-ness to a degree. And I want to say body horror is a component. I remember my first idea I couldn't do because not that it was… too similar, but thematically, we were treading in the same waters. [Producer] Todd Brown feels pretty certain that they'll end up being natural thematic alignments."
An ETA for XX has yet to be determined, but it'll be put out by Magnet Releasing and XYZ Films.
