Rock star St Vincent will put a feminine spin on Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Annie Clark, who is better known by her rock star name St. Vincent, is directing an adaptation of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde’s controversial 1890 novel for Lionsgate. The updated film will have a twist. The Picture Of Dorian Grey will be a portrait of a woman.
The Victorian era story of a hedonist who never gets old will be adapted by David Birke (Elle, the upcoming Slender Man).
Multi-instrumentalist St. Vincent started her music career as a member of the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens's touring band before forming her own band in 2006. She released her debut album Marry Me in 2007. She collaborated with David Byrne for the 2012 album Love This Giant. Her eponymous album won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album in 2015.
