Vuckovic will be taking on Ketchum’s short story The Box. She said the following via social media: “I hope you guys like my take on Ketchum’s superb existential horror story.” She has also revealed that the project will begin lensing next month.
We previously reported that Magnet releasing had announced that they will be financing and have secured worldwide distribtuion rights to the all female horror anthology film XX. It was previously reported that the Soska Sisters would be contributing to the picture but the press release does not include their names in the talent roster, so as far as we can tell, the talent behind the camera will be comprised of Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Jennifer Lynch (Surveillance), and Jovanka Vuckovic.
Magnet will be working in concert with production company XYZ films on XX. Aside from budgetary and time restrictions, the creators of each segment in the anthology have been given full creative control to make a horror short. The film will be completed some time in 2015.
