XX, the all-female horror anthology from XYZ Films, has financial backing. According to TheWrap, Magnet Releasing signed on to finance the movie. It's a solid fit for Magnet, a company firmly ensconced in the horror anthologies with the V/H/S and ABCs of Death franchises.
“Magnet has been the home to the most exciting anthology horror films of the last several years, and we're very pleased to continue the trend with XX," Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles said. "We're especially excited about the caliber of filmmakers involved with this anthology, and the fresh approach that it's taking to the horror genre."
The XX directors include Mary Harron (American Psycho), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer's Body), Jennifer Lynch (Surveillance) and Jovanka Vuckovic (Jacqueline Ess). The anthology doesn't have a theme, but each director will be tasked with sticking to a specific budget and time frame for filming.
