Ana Lily Amirpour

After making an acclaimed feature directorial debut with A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour is teaming up with some heavy hitters for her next project. The Wrap reports Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures (responsible for Zero Dark Thirty, Her and more) is teaming up with the provocative news and documentary outlet Vice to produce The Bad Batch. Plot details are kept under wraps for the time being, but the project is described as being a dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland. Considering what Amirpour did with vampires in her debut, this already sounds promising.

Eddy Moretti, an executive producer at Vice says, "Ana Lily is a force of cinematic nature. She inhabits that special place where the pop sensibility of the movies meets the deep sensuality of film art. It’s a tricky thing to pull off – creating this kind of wildly entertaining visionary cinema – but Ana Lily is powerful, so she can pull it off. I’m thrilled and honored to help bring The Bad Batch to life with my friends at Annapurna. This is going to be a lot of fun.” It's certainly fantastic to have another great female eye get behind the camera, and we can't wait to see what Amirpour does with her career. Stay tuned for more.
