Today, it was announced that musician Annie Clark, who goes by the stage name St. Vincent, will direct a film based on Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray.

But Clark's adaptation will reportedly feature a twist on the classic novel: the title character, a beauty-obsessed man who remains young while his portrait ages, will be reimagined as a woman.

Per Variety, which announced the news this morning, the script is being written by David Birke, and the project is being developed by Lionsgate.

It's unclear what the timeline for the film will be, or who is being considered for the cast. We'll continue to update this post as we know more.
