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."
Late last month Rose McGowan sat down for a lengthy Q&A at Toronto’s Fan Expo, during which she touched upon several projects that she currently has in the pipeline.
• Rose shared that she recently signed with Dolly Parton’s manager and hopes to record an album in Nashville in the next few months!
• We learned earlier this year of Rose’s plans to direct a short film. Now she said that she is about to direct a film starring Piper Laurie (Carrie) and Joshua Close (The Master). We don’t know if this is perhaps the short film that she talked about earlier or a full length feature – but, as always, we’ll keep you posted!
I’ll leave you with a video of Rose singing part of Fever for the lucky Expo audience.
Last month Rose McGowan filmed a role for a western titled Last of the Duanes, based on the novel of the same title by Zane Grey and directed by Christopher Ekstein. The film was adapted by Ekstein, Jason Chase Tyrrell and Stacy Ownes Ekstein. Apart from the fact that she plays a madam, we know very little about Rose’s character and the size of her role in this production. Last of the Duanes stars Scott Eastwood (son of Clint Eastwood), Danny Trejo (Machete co-star) and Jason Patric. We’ll keep you posted with any further details as they come!
Meanwhile, you can view a video interview with Rose under the cut, in which she mentions the project, and check out a few behind the scenes images in the gallery. Furthermore, here is a synopsis for the novel on which the movie is based on:
Western legend Grey (Lorna Doone, Riders of the Purple Sage) wrote this novel in 1913, but it was rejected by his early publishers, who believed it contained too much gunplay and not enough sentimentality. Buck Duane is the son of an infamous gunfighter. Although Buck is warned by his family to avoid the outlaw trail, his quick temper, steady nerve and lightning-quick hand promptly get him into trouble. After killing a bully, Buck flees the law and heads off into the harsh badlands of southwest Texas, where outlaw gangs roam the Mexican border. Buck falls in with a bad crowd, but an exaggerated reputation and a couple of nifty shootings keep him alive among the ornery rustlers and robbers. He grows into a steely-eyed gunfighter with a conscience and a saddlebag full of regrets. Despite the notches multiplying on his gun, however, Buck is a decent fellow. He rescues a young girl, Jennie Lee, from the abusive clutches of the Bland gang, only to see her abducted again. In despair, Buck hides out for several more years, dodging the law and the bushwhackers, all the while searching for Jennie Lee. When the Texas Rangers finally catch up with Buck, it’s not to kill him but to make him an offer he can’t refuse. This may have been too bloody a story for 1913, but it follows formula in the end, as the outlaw settles down, albeit with a haunted mind, to a life of humble domesticity.
Today the gallery has been updated with The Tell-Tale Heart goodies: a stunningly beautiful new still featuring Rose McGowan and her leading man Patrick John Flueger as well as a handful of newly released posters featuring Patrick. Word has it that Rose’s character poster will be released soon! Meanwhile, enjoy these gorgeous new images.
In honor of Rose McGowan’s 39th birthday, the gallery has been updated with glorious Blu-ray screencaptures of one of Rose’s more recent movies, Dead Awake. Rose plays Charlie in the Omar Naim directed film, a character who is, in Rose’s own words, “a semi-homeless crackhead who I think is half cracked and half schizophrenic.” A different type of a role for our lady, that is for sure!
The gallery has been updated with the freshly released The Tell-Tale Heart poster and a handful of images from the set of the film, which is set for a 2013 debut.
Director John LaTier had this to say about the film and poster: “We hope the release of this poster will delight our fans, who have been patiently waiting for updates and a trailer from our film. We are in post production now, and though I cannot give away too many details yet, this poster and sweepstakes are leading up to a bigger announcement in just a few short weeks.”
In addition to the poster, the film is also holding a sweepstakes for a chance to have comic book illustrator Rob Prior (Marvel, D.C., Image Comics) immortalize the lucky winner as a background character in some accompanying concept art. To enter, head to the The Tell-Tale HeartFacebook page.
Did you know that all the way back in 1989 Rose McGowan made her first silver screen appearance? That’s right! In Seattle, a 16-year old Rose was an extra in a horror film called Class of 1999, which was consequently released in 1990. She has no actual lines but does appear in the background of a handful of scenes. Regardless, this has been an exciting find for us McGowaniacs and we are now able to bring you screencaptures of Rose’s cameo appearance. You may have to look hard to spot her in some of those scenes – but it’s worth it!
The film is available on DVD on Amazon if you’re interested in purchasing a copy.
According to PR Newswire, Rosewood Lane will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on September 11, 2012 in North America by Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
Directed by Victor Salva, and starring Rose McGowan and Daniel Ross Owens, the film follows Doctor Sonny Blake (McGowan), a radio talk show psychiatrist, who moves back to her childhood home on seemingly idyllic Rosewood Lane after the death of her father. But upon arrival, she discovers her neighbors are inexplicably terrified of the local paperboy (Owens). When their paths collide, she suddenly finds herself in a terrifying fight to stay alive while at odds with this dangerous and calculating sociopath, who may have gruesomely killed her father… and others.
The music video for RAC’s Hollywood, featuring an awesome cameo by Rose McGowan, has been released. Directed by Ryan Reichenfeld and shot in Los Angeles, the video tells the story of an 1850s cowboy and his horse as they experience and explore modern day LA. The cowboy, completely out of his element, longs for something familiar – and he might just find it in the end.
Be sure to check out the Hollywood music video over at McGowan Media. Hint: Rose appears towards the end of the video.

“I have no inteterest in real. I find real people boring.” – Rose McGowan
“If somehow, Liza Minnelli in Cabararet and Jean Harlow had a baby and threw it in white puffy boots with the perfect poodle… It would be you!” – Rose McGowan judging Sharon Needles
Screencaptures of Rose McGowan guest judging on the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race have been added to the gallery. What a fun (and emotional!) episode. Rose couldn’t have guest starred on a more fitting episode, being that it was doggy inspired couture and we know her love of pups. Rose looked gorgeous in her amazing sparkling corset and the episode was a blast, that ultimately and tearfully sent one of my favorite queens home. I really wish Rose would come back for more episodes because she was hilarious alongside Ru and the other judges! Watch the entire episode on Logo’s website (US only).
Fans have the chance to re-visit Rose McGowan’s star-making turn as Amy Blue in The Doom Generation as the film is finally going to be released on R2 DVD in Britain on March 26, 2012. This release is packed with exciting extras, including a featurette titled My Generation, interview with director Gregg Araki and a commentary with Araki, McGowan, James Duval and Johnathon Schaech. The DVD is available for pre-order over at Amazon.
In honour of these exciting news, I’ve updated the gallery with a nice batch of stills from The Doom Generation. Special thanks goes out to our friend Dale for contributing many of these. Enjoy!
