Lionsgate is working on a new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s 1890 novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark, has just been announced as the director of the film. St. Vincent’s film will have a twist on the original novel: the title character will be a woman. Notable horror film scriptwriter David Birke has been hired to write the script.
Clark’s filmmaking debut came earlier this year, when her short “Birthday Party” was included in the female-led XX horror anthology. [Variety]
