‘Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ Director Ana Lily Amirpour Unveils Her Next Film

'Girl Walks Home Alone at Night' Director Ana Lily Amirpour Unveils Her Next Film

“The Bad Batch” promises to be yet another genre-bending film from director Amirpour, who burst from Sundance onto the indie scene and won a Gotham Award for her subversive and darkly witty B&W debut “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.”

Plot details remain under wraps, but this “dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland” will be written and directed by Amirpour, and produced by VICE (who also headed up “Girl Walks”) and Annapurna Pictures, which is spearheaded by whip-smart Megan Ellison.

Ellison will produce alongside VICE’s Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah. Annapurna’s Sammy Scher will be the executive overseeing the day-to-day development and production of the project while VICE’s Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti will Executive Produce. Justine Baddeley and Kim Davis-Wagner are currently casting the project.

As with their previous collaboration, A24’s mind-bending”Spring Breakers,” VICE and Annapurna will work together to reach a young and savvy global audience — and if that’s the goal, VICE and Megan Ellison are no-brainers.
