All Female Horror Anthology Announced
In the last few hours, it’s just been announced that a new horror anthology, XX, is being put in production by MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Films. Why the name XX? Well, each film will be directed by a female director and have a female lead.
Producer Todd Brown (The Raid: Redemption) had this to say: “One of the givens of so many horror films has been the objectification of young women, and we thought it was time for a different approach to scaring audiences and letting the female voice be heard.”
And boy, is there some awesome talent on board. Names confirmed so far include:
Mary Harron (American Psycho and The Notorious Bettie Page)
Jennifer lynch (Boxing Helena and Hisss)
Karyn Kusama (Girlfight and Jennifer’s Body)
Jovanak Vuckovic (The Captured Bird)
Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary and 2014’s See No Evil 2)
According to the press release, each director will be allowed to develop their own stories. With each story being connected by animation from Sofia Carrillo.
Well, we’re fucking stoked about this and we’re pretty sure you are too. No word on a release date outside of ‘sometime in 2014’, but as soon as we hear anything, you’ll be the first to know.
