St. Vincent, the pop-rock wrecking ball otherwise known as Annie Clark, has linked up with Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein for a concert tour film, Collider reports. The comedy marks the latest in a string of collaborations, from Clark guesting on Brownstein’s Portlandia to the surreal promotional videos they made ahead of 2017's Masseduction.

Clark and Brownstein, who wrote the script together, will reportedly play “heightened versions of themselves,” though Spin adds quotes a source saying “the project isn’t a ‘mockumentary,’ as Collider first reported, but rather, a scripted film that was to have been shot like a documentary.” However it manifests, we’re here for it.

Portlandia director Bill Benz is attached as a director, though an insider says “production is still a long ways off, if the project ever moves forward at all,” so don’t get too excited, we guess? The two do have a lot on their plate, after all, with Brownstein helming MGM’s upcoming Fairy Godmother and Clark developing a gender-swapped take on The Portrait Of Dorian Gray. There’s also the Sleater-Kinney album St. Vincent produced, which could very well drop this year. The content runneth over.
