Jovanka Vuckovic Directing Post-Apocalyptic Horror-Thriller, ‘Riot Girls’ | Film News
Former visual effects artist and director of segment The Box in the all-female directed horror anthology XX, Jovanka Vuckovic, has signed on and begun directing her solo directorial debut, titled Riot Girls.
Currently filming in Canada, the film is set in an alternate 1995, four years after a mysterious illness has killed all adults. The town of Potter’s Bluff has been divided into two sides, one poor and one wealthy, and when poor Jack is forced to kill two members of the wealthy elite, he is captured and sentenced to execution, unless his sister Nat and her best friend Snatch can save him.
Vuckovic said in a statement regarding the film:
“Riot Girls is not the kind of film women usually get to make, with characters that women don’t usually get to play, so I was naturally attracted to it. It’s also reminiscent of my favourite high concept cult films, and being an outsider myself, I can’t help but love a good misfit’s journey. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be at the helm of this genre-bending, punk rock, post-apocalypse film”.
If “genre-bending, punk rock, post-apocalypse film” doesn’t get the blood flowing, I’m not sure what will. It sounds great, and will be scripted by Katherine Collins, and star Madison Iseman and Paloma Kwiatkowski.
