Megan Ellison Teams with Vice on Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘Bad Batch’ Romance Movie

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures and Vice are teaming to produce “The Bad Batch” directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, helmer of “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.”

“A Girl,” an Iranian vampire story that debuted at Sundance last year, won the Gotham Awards Breakthrough trophy for Amirpour.

“The Bad Batch” is a dystopian love story set in a Texas wasteland, but plot details are being kept under wraps.

Ellison will produce alongside Vice’s Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah. Annapurna’s Sammy Scher will be oversee the day-to-day development and production, and Vice’s Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti will exec produce.

Vice will support the film with its inhouse marketing capabilities in the U.S. and select international territories.

Annapurna and Vice collaborated last year on marketing Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers.”

Moretti said: “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.”
