Female Horror Anthology “XX” loses Mary Harron, Gains St. Vincent’s Annie ClarkMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
It seems almost like forever ago that XX, the horror anthology from XYZ Films featuring an all-female filmmaker line-up, was announced. Yet in that time since, little information has come out about the film outside of its rotating roster of filmmakers, with filmmakers Jean & Sylvia Soska having departed the project through it’s various stages of development. Now, the latest update comes with both good news and bad news: the bad news is that AMERICAN PSYCHO helmer Mary Harron has also departed the project, but the good news is that XX will feature the directorial debut of St. Vincent musician Annie Clark.
With Clark’s involvement broken by Killer POV last week, that leaves the current (and seemingly final) roster of filmmakers attached to XX being Clark, THE INVITATION’s Karyn Kusama, SURVEILLANCE’s Jennifer Lynch, LA CASTA TRISTE’s Sofia Carrillo and Rue Morgue badass Jovanka Vuckovic. Clark also confirmed the attachment of another female fright filmmaker, SOUTHBOUND’s Roxanne Benjamin, who will be boarding the project as a producer for Clark’s segment. XX is also produced by Travis Steven’s Snowfort Pictures (STARRY EYES, CHEAP THRILLS); check out the new updated poster for XX below and stay tuned for more news on the anthology project as it breaks here at FANGORIA.com!
