Digital Witness: Annie Clark Added as 4th “XX” Helmer

Going the Peaches route, Annie Clark (St. Vincent) is replacing Mary Harron and joining femme fatale filmmaker quartet (Karyn Kusama, Jennifer Lynch and Jovanka Vuckovic) on XX — the horror anthology film produced by Roxanne Benjamin and XYZ Films. TheWrap reports that she is scheduled to film shortly. Magnet Releasing is distributing.

Gist: This is an anthology comprised of short horror films all revolving around a female protagonist.

Worth Noting: Producer/filmmaker Roxanne Benjamin knows a thing or two about the format: she was deeply involved in the V/H/S and Southbound anthologies.

Do We Care?: With a likely future TIFF playdate in the cards, we see plenty of upside with this project.

Eric Lavallée is the founder, CEO, editor-in-chief, film journalist and critic at IONCINEMA.com (founded in 2000). Eric splits his time between his home base in Montreal, NYC, and is a regular at Sundance, Cannes and TIFF. He has a BFA in Film Studies at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema. In 2013 he served as a Narrative Competition Jury Member at the SXSW Film Festival. Top 3 from 2016: Certain Women (Kelly Reichardt), Things to Come (Mia Hansen-Løve), Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade)
