Project Spotlight

Dawn (2013, short, drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"I just finished my first piece for RSA Black Dog, which is Ridley Scott's commercial music video company. I directed a 20-minute short with amazing actors. It was a really amazing project to do, and I felt really comfortable doing it, more so than I ever have acting."

The premiere for Grindhouse was held last night in Austin, we hope some of you got a chance to go see it since they were selling tickets as we mentioned earlier. Rose attended, and she was looking very cute as always on the red carpet.

Did you always know you were going to be in both Planet Terror and Death Proof? “No. I auditioned for Quentin’s twice. I had to go back twice, while I was shooting Planet Terror, so no, I did not. It was not a foregone conclusion.”

Were you hinting to Quentin that he should put you in his movie too when he came to visit the Planet Terror set? “No, God no. Never. No, no, no, no, no. I think it was just the same old-fashioned way of somebody making an appointment for you and going in. But also, Quentin likes me and my acting, so to speak. I would never presume to go up to anybody and say anything like that. In fact, I made a huge point to never talk about it. He wasn’t even doing auditions or anything like that, then. I think he was still finishing the script.”

He’s a fanatic about his scripts, I understand. Every word is agonized over. “Yes. He has a very specific cadence, obviously. As long as you can get that, I think you’re sailing away, and you’re just fine.”

Since you left Charmed, you’ve done The Black Dahlia, some other stuff. Were you trying to move in a different direction with this? “It’s kind of just the way it’s happened. It certainly miss everybody on it [Charmed]. It’s very funny because Quentin is a huge fan of the show.”

So was it just time to leave? “Well, my contract was done, and yes, it was time. I was over, I didn’t want to re-up. I was on for five [years] and the girls were on for eight, and the only reason I was on for five was because I re-signed for three more years, after I was on for two. I was told I’d be there for about a year.”

“I met her at Cannes for Sin City. We were sitting around, I was talking to Clive Owen, and then turned around and met Rose, and I was like ‘what are you up to?’ and she told me she’d been stuck on a TV show for five years, and I was like ‘oh, no wonder I haven’t seen you around. You were a Dimension girl for a while, you were in Scream … then, like, gone.’ I didn’t know what happened to her. And I started talking to her — she’s hilarious. She really just caught me off guard. When you meet somebody like that, that has a personality that’s so strong in person, you know that if they can blow it up 50 times on a screen, it’s going to be amazing. You know, like George Clooney or Antonio or Salma — you get that epiphany of ‘ I want you to be in my movie, but as you are.’ People tell her she should be a stand-up, she’s so accident-prone, she has the worst luck, there are just so many things about her. She’s always talking about her useless talents. I was like taking notes — ‘All I have to do is add a machine-gun leg to her, and she’d be over the top.’ So really, there’s so much of her in Cherry. No one else could have played her.”

After directing his Grindhouse actresses in sadistic scenes of death and dismemberment, Quentin Tarantino was repaid in full at the film’s premiere — with a cake presented by femme fatales Rose McGowan, Rosario Dawson and Marley Shelton for his 44th birthday.

Shortly after midnight Tuesday morning, the sexy sirens led a bawdy chorus of Happy Birthday to You as Tarantino welcomed a bear hug from Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez.

Earlier on the Orpheum Theatre stage, executive producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein thanked the directors for following them to The Weinstein Co. after the brothers’ ugly 2005 split from Disney.

But the celebration was not without mishap. Just before the star arrivals, a water main break flooded the red carpet, causing Tarantino to fret about ruining his “groovy” black boots. “I’m glad they fixed that,” he said.
