MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Films are mounting an all-female horror anthology titled XX, in which each segment will be directed by a woman and feature a female lead, reports THR.
The directors onboard the momentous indie movie include Jennifer Lynch (Hisss, Boxing Helena), Mary Harron (American Psycho, The Moth Diaries), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body), sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, Dead Hooker in a Trunk) and Jovanka Vuckovic (“The Captured Bird”).
The filmmakers will develop their own stories, and each will have a female lead character. The various segments will be linked by work by Guadalajara-based stop-motion animator Sofia Carrillo, who will also create the film’s title sequence.
Todd Brown will produce for XYZ, whose Nate Bolotin, Nick Spicer and Aram Tertzakia will executive produce for the company. Greg Newman will serve as executive producer for MPI/Dark Sky, while Jovanka Vukovic acts as associate producer.
