Female Directors Tackle Horror In “XX”

MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Films have announced “XX” , a landmark all-female horror anthology film with each segment sporting both a female director and lead.

Directors involved include Jennifer Lynch (“Boxing Helena”), Mary Harron (“American Psycho”), Karyn Kusama (“Girlfight”), The Soska Sisters (“Dead Hooker in a Trunk”) and Jovanka Vuckovic (“The Captured Bird”).

Each director will develop their own stories, while the various segments will be linked together by the work of stop-motion animator Sofia Carrillo who is also crafting the title sequence.

Todd Brown will produce the project which aims to give opportunities in a genre dominated by male filmmakers.
