An all-female horror anthology titled XX has been announced, with the directors of American Psycho, American Mary, Chained and Jennifer’s Body signing on to direct segments of the film.

The Wrap reports that Mary Harron (American Psycho, The Notorious Bettie Page), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary, Dead Hooker In A Trunk), Jennifer Lynch (Chained, Surveillance), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body) and Jovanka Vuckovic (director of the excellent short film The Captured Bird) have all signed on for the film from MPI/Dark Sky Films and XYZ Film.

The short films will be linked by stop-motion animation by Sofia Carrillo. Both V/H/S films were directed entirely by men, and the vast majority of directors on The ABCs of Death were male (although it’s interesting to note that the Soskas are working on The ABCs of Death 2). Leaving that to one side, this is a very interesting group of directors, making for a very promising anthology indeed.

You can buy American Psycho on DVD for £3.79 at Amazon.co.uk.
