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."

Rose McGowan moves intuitively around her LA home in this tender portrait by Marlene Marino, shot earlier this year when the photographer captured the American actress for the latest issue of lifestyle title Apartamento. The Brian De Palma and Quentin Tarantino favorite made her name in tongue-in-cheek slasher Scream and supernatural series Charmed, and established her cult status in director Gregg Araki’s 1995 comedy thriller The Doom Generation, which saw the pin-up entangled in a sordid ménage à trois. Yet shooting today’s short was a strict case of ‘Two’s company.’ Having met through director Ridley Scott’s Black Dog Films—set to release McGowan’s directorial debut Dawn—the actress and Marino bonded over a shared attitude towards beauty. “Marlene and I were just celebrating femininity,” she says of the visceral short that is soundtracked by Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, who previously scored Shane Meadows’ This Is England. “I think people can rise higher than the consensus of what is considered sexy; our only objective was to do something natural. I didn’t act, I just flowed into it.”


Rose McGowan Dances Au Naturel in the Privacy of Her Californian Hideaway

What was it like to see yourself in this completely uninhibited state?
Rose McGowan: It was really transformative: it actually made me cry. It was born out of reclaiming my own ideas of what beauty is. I have realized that I don’t have to be bound by the “rules” here in Los Angeles or Hollywood. It is me, but not an artificial version.

What’s next for you?
RM: I’m going to direct my first feature film, taking things I borrowed from Marlene. I’m also making a show about art and pornography. It will be custom-made porn but not in the kind of way that you’ve seen or that you think of it.

Is that in production?
RM: I just shot the teaser for it and in it I’m wearing a strap-on. It’s pretty balls-out, I’m not gonna lie—it’s going to look insane.

What’s your experience of pornography?
RM: I have never liked it and don’t find it sexually interesting: I don’t like their hair, makeup, or acting. How am I supposed to get excited by something that I think is cornball and not beautiful?

So what would you consider to be sexy?
RM: Oh I don’t know, maybe two people in a lovely field on a farm, shot like Terence Malick.

The Season of the Witch is spreading to CBS.

The network has handed out a script commitment to a reimagining of Aaron Spelling’s WB Network series Charmed, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

As first reported by Vulture, Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner will pen the script for CBS Television Studios and The Tannenbaum Co. Keyser and Sidner will also co-executive produce. For its part, CBSTVS owns the rights to Spelling’s library.

Charmed 2.0 is described as a reimaginging of the original series that centered around four sisters who discover their destiny — to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft.

'Rise of the Lonestar Ranger' 'The Tell-Tale Heart' Articles News & Rumors
Article written on September 23, 2013 by RoseRockse-mail

Rose McGowan faced a difficult challenge several years ago when she sat at her father Daniel’s bedside while he was dying from a rare lung disease.

The actress, best known for her role on the TV show Charmed and subsequent movies, was her father’s support person, sharing his passion for art books and watching Little Rascal episodes with him from his hospital bed.

Now, McGowan is using her celebrity as an actress to put a face on a rare fatal disease as a way to help patients and their families on this difficult road.

She said in a recent exclusive telephone chat last week that she has made it her mission to raise awareness about idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the disease that took her father’s life in 2008 at age 61, and to help people recognize the signs and symptoms, receive sorely needed emotional support.

It is especially timely that she is speaking out about the disease and her advocacy now because September is Pulmonary Fibrosis month.

The raven-haired McGowan, 40, who portrayed Paige Matthews in the supernatural drama Charmed, made her film debut in the 1992 comedy Encino Man.

Her upcoming projects include a film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart which opens on Oct. 15, and she is making a movie in Texas called The Last Duane, a western due out in the fall of 2014, also starring Jason Patric.

A modern-day B-movie queen, Rose McGowan is well-known for her definitive role in Gregg Araki’s ’90s teen-angst thriller The Doom Generation.

Her irresistible venom has also landed her roles in movies like Encino Man, Bio-Dome, Scream, Nowhere, Jawbreaker, Grindhouse, Machete, and Conan the Barbarian. She will next appear in the fittingly dark big-screen adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, with Peter Bogdanovich.

First big break: The Doom Generation. Since then I’ve: gone up and down and all around.

My favorite character that I’ve played to date is: Cherry Darling in Planet Terror.

My next project is: A short film I directed called Dawn. It’s produced by RSA/Blackdog and is super legit. Not a vanity piece. I’ve also found a feature to direct. I have no desire to act in any movie I direct.

'The Tell-Tale Heart'
Article written on May 11, 2013 by RoseRockse-mail

Another spin on the classic and truly twisted Edgar Allan Poe tale The Tell Tale Heart will be causing a stir at this year’s Cannes Film Market.

From the press release:

Darclight Films, the edgy genre-driven label of Arclight Films, announces the acquisition and release of first-look footage of John La Tier’s inspired directorial debut The Tell Tale Heart starring Rose McGowan (Grindhouse, TVs Charmed, Jawbreaker, Scream), Peter Bogdanovich (The Sopranos, Humboldt County, Festival In Cannes, TVs “The Simpsons“) and Patrick John Flueger (Footloose, Brothers, TVs “The 4400“). Based on the classic short story of the same name penned by Edgar Allan Poe, America’s first master of horror over 150 years ago, La Tier, who also co-wrote the script, transplants the gloomy Gothic story into vibrant and enchanting modern day New Orleans. Darclight Films will be sharing never-before-seen footage in Cannes.

“We’re thrilled to present The Tell Tale Heart to buyers for the very first time, and Cannes is the perfect place to do so,” said Clay Epstein, VP of Sales and Acquisitions for Arclight Films, who secured the deal. “It’s one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most well known stories, and only a few others have been translated into as many languages worldwide as The Tell Tale Heart. The combination of the incredibly talented team of cast and crew that have come together to give new life to a truly classic and horrifying tale and a built-in global audience give the film outstanding commercial viability.”
