The musician, real name Annie Clark, has been recruited by bosses at film distributor Magnet Releasing to take charge of a movie in their upcoming all-female horror anthology film, called XX.

Each of the instalments will not only be directed by a woman, but will also feature female leads. The directors will be given full creative licence with the storyline, as long as it involves a female protagonist.

Clark's segment is scheduled to film this spring (16).

Other directors signed up for the XX anthology include Karyn Kusama, Jennifer Lynch, and Jovanka Vuckovic.
