Magnet Releasing Acquires World Rights to Horror Anthology XX

Magnet Releasing announced today that they are fully financing and taking worldwide rights to XX, a new horror anthology featuring all female directors, telling stories with female leads that is being produced by XYZ Films (THE RAID, TUSK) . The XX anthology will be comprised of short horror films by Karyn Kusama (GIRLFIGHT, JENNIFER’S BODY), Mary Harron (AMERICAN PSYCHO), Jennifer Lynch (SURVEILLANCE), and Jovanka Vuckovic.

The directors have been given free creative rein within budget and time constraints, but all of the segments themselves will involve the horror genre.

“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. 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,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles.

“We believe strongly in fostering the best talents around the world at XYZ. We believe different perspectives are what keep storytelling fresh and exciting and hope that XX can help to encourage more female writers and directors to explore the genre world. And we know the ones we have for this first effort are going to absolutely kick ass,” said XYZ’s Todd Brown.

Magnolia’s Head of International and Broadcast Sales Christina Rogers will be repping the film at AFM next month.

The deal was negotiated by Magnolia VP of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemburg and Head of Business Affairs & Production Chris Matson with Todd Brown and Nick Spicer of XYZ Films. Dwjuan Fox will serve as supervising producer for all segments of the film.

XX will be completed in 2015.
