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."

I finally got ahold of the Machete DVD, which comes with three deleted scenes that feature Rose McGowan as the insanely cool and equally deadly assassin, Boots McCoy. I’ve added the screencaptures of Rose’s scenes in the gallery plus made video clips for your viewing pleasure. You can check out all of the clips right over here at McGowan Media.

A word of warning, though. Hardcore cat lovers might find the scene titled “Boots McCoy shoots Luz” offensive. Consider yourselves warned! 😉

'Dead Awake' 'Machete' Media Alerts
Article written on November 25, 2010 by Riikkae-mail

It appears that the DVD release of Dead Awake has been post-poned, most likely because the film will be in limited theatrical release from December 3 onwards. According to Amazon, the DVD and Blu-ray will be available on March 29, 2011. Both are available for pre-order.

Also, don’t forget that Machete will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on January 4, 2011, which means we’ll be able to kick off the New Year by seeing Rose’s cameo in the movie!

Check out this interview with Rose McGowan, regarding her role in Machete. It comes from the Polish site It sounds like the interview took place during the filming of the movie  so the info is a little bit dated – as we know, Rose’s scene didn’t end up being in the movie. Aww, it sounds like Bug has a little cameo in the scene too. Also, this is a very loose translation via an online translator and doesn’t really make sense at times… So if there’s any Polish speakers out there who would be able to help out and provide a better translation for us to archive, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Machete comes to theaters early as this Friday. But before you choose to film in Robert Rodriguez’s latest production, we invite you to read the interview with Rose McGowan, whose history is accompanied by Bug – the heroine of Machete.

How many have been waiting for the Bug for this role?

Bug waiting for this moment 13 years and 8 months. Finally, the game of “dipped”!

How was it working with your own dog?

It’s a dream come true. I’ve been waiting for this year and I am glad that Robert Rodriguez finally wrote to her role.

How to cope on the set?

Excellent, much better than the cat, who also appears in the movie. Bug knows where to stand, it comes on time, knows all her lines and is always prepared.

What role do you play in a “dip”?

Boots McCoy – a noiseless, fiendishly clever assassin.

Rose McGowan’s scene did, in fact, not make it in the theatrical version of Machete, as many of our North American fans have reported to us. Her cameo will, however, be on the DVD release so we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see Rose. To make the wait hopefully seem a bit shorter, I’ve uploaded some promotional images of Rose as her character. She seems like Amy Blue’s big sister, doesn’t she? And I LOVE that shot of Rose holding Bug… So precious!

If you still have interest in seeing (a Rose-less) Machete, the film is now playing in North American cinemas.

As if you needed anymore proof of how awesome Machete is going to be, here comes more proof; a bad-ass red band trailer for the flick! Warning: This video is not safe for work (and thus its awesomeness!) Even though Rose is only gonna be in a small part, I’m so excited to revisit the Grindhouse experience on the big screen and I’m sure you are too!

The trailer for Machete has been released and may be viewed under the cut. Rose McGowan’s character has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance around 1.03 minutes into the trailer. So awesome to see some new material featuring Rose!

A bunch of new Machete posters have also been released, which I’ve uploaded in the gallery. None of them feature Rose, though, but perhaps our Cherry will get her own poster shortly – here’s to hoping!

Today in celebration of Cinco De Mayo, Robert Rodriguez has presented a brand new cut of the Machete trailer to! The trailer which features lots of shots from the original trailer shown with 2007’s Grindhouse but also has tons of brand new star studded scenes with Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Robert Deniro and Michelle Rodriguez! Be sure to check it out, looks like it’s gonna be a blast – I just wish they would get a move on the full length version of Thanksgiving as well!

Rose is not shown in this footage, though. She is playing Cherry Darling again and it’s reported she will be seen in a fake trailer before this movie so we probably won’t see her until Machete is released in September – but hopefully Robert Rodriguez will hear our pleas to see something of Cherry/Rose soon and maybe release a production still or something! Let’s wish!

20th Century Fox has set a September 3, 2010 release date for Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis’ Machete, starring Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal. Labor Day falls on Monday, Sept. 6, which gives the movie a four-day opening weekend.

Machete is based on the “fake” trailer in Robert Rodriguez’s 2007 Grindhouse. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

Rose McGowan has a cameo in one of the faux trailers that accompany the film.
