St. Vincent’s Annie Clark to Direct Female-Led ‘Dorian Gray’
St. Vincent’s Annie Clark to Direct Female-Led ‘Dorian Gray’
After three blissfully grotesque seasons of Penny Dreadful, it’s difficult to imagine anyone reinvigorating the familiar story of Dorian Gray as well as John Logan did in his tragically-short-lived gothic series. Enter Annie Clark, better known to fans as musician / rock god St. Vincent, who is set to make her feature directing debut with a gender-swapped take on The Picture of Dorian Gray.

It’s a weird thing to openly root for a movie that you find yourself not enjoying. This is how I felt while watching Bill Murray in ‘St. Vincent’ on the second day of the Toronto International Film Festival. I can’t be the only one who does this, right? It’s a situation in which you deeply admire the actors in a movie – in this case, Murray and Melissa McCarthy – and for the first, say, 45 minutes, you’re trying to convince yourself what you’re watching is “good.”
