Project Spotlight

Dawn (2014, short drama)
Directed by Rose McGowan
Starring Tara Barr, Reiley McClendon and Hannah Marks

"Dawn is really about what we do to young girls unwittingly, and how we send them out into the world completely unprotected, in a way that has, at times, really tragic consequences. Being polite at the risk of your own internal voice of danger being silenced is a pretty dangerous thing."

Robert Rodriguez confirms what we pretty much already knew: that Barbarella, which was to Rose McGowan, has been scrapped. Too bad that there’s no mention of Red Sonja, I’d really love to know what’s happening with the film. MTV Movies Blog reports:

Like the tides and Lindsay Lohan’s film career, movie projects come and go. One project we’re particularly sad to see go bye-bye is Robert Rodriguez’s planned adaptation of the schlocky, sexy 1968 sci-fi flick, Barbarella.

Yes, MTV News learned exclusively during a conversation with the director to promote the Blu-ray version of Sin City that his Barbarella is officially dead.

The film had been in development for years. Back in 2007, Universal Pictures was set to make the picture with Rose McGowan taking over the lead role from original star Jane Fonda. But the budget was said to have swelled past $80 million dollars and Universal balked. Rodriguez went in search of alternate financing.

“It came to the point where [a company from] Germany offered us a $70 million budget, which would have been by far the biggest budget I ever would have had for a movie,” Rodriguez told MTV News. “But I had to shoot it in Germany and post it in Germany. Nothing against Germany, but I have five kids and I was like, ‘God, I don’t know if we can do that. I don’t know if I can be away that long.’”

'Barbarella' 'Red Sonja' News & Rumors
Article written on July 27, 2008 by Riikkae-mail

Check out this fabulous Comic-Con interview with Rose and Robert, courtesy of Click on the link to read an interview with director Douglas Aarniokoski and writer David White.

CS/SHH!: What drew you both to the character of Red Sonja?

Rose McGowan: Well, I thought Red Sonja was incredibly badass. The studio brought me the script. I got really excited about it. I’d been getting such boring scripts and after doing Cherry in Planet Terror, I was really in a quite a deep depression — I’m not going to lie — at least workwise. I came home and said, “I really want to do this movie. It’s kind of great. Look at these comic books, you ever heard of this person? This is insane!” And then…

'Barbarella' 'Red Sonja' Video Vault
Article written on July 26, 2008 by Mycahe-mail

Luckily G4 put up the interview they aired of Miss Rose from Comic-Con, in it she states that Red Sonja will begin filming at the end of September and next week she begins training about 4-5 hours a day. She will be learning sword fighting, trick horse riding, free running, acrobatics and more. “Pretty much I’ll be able to control the universe on my horse when I’m done.” she joked. When asked about Barbarella, Robert says they had to push that back because he’s working on something else (which is why he will not be directing Red Sonja), but this one came in. So who knows, while I see it unlikely Barbarella will ever really get a chance again you honestly never know! Check out the whole interview below (HQ version here). Captures coming up shortly.

Article written on July 24, 2008 by Mycahe-mail

Check out one of the first transcripts of today’s panel for Red Sonja from Spout Blog. It’s very funny (Robert says he fell for Rose after she called him “Count Fuckula”) and gives lots of interesting details on the upcoming flick as well as exciting news that a Planet Terror “sequel” – in the form of a trailer attached to the Machete film is possibly gonna happen. Here’s to hoping, as I’d kill for more Cherry Darling! And get ready for those Sin City rumors to fly again, as Rose teases the fans once more and Robert announces there are scripts for Sin City 2 & 3 (“They have a script, waiting for Frank Miller to be done with The Spirit.”) The two also discuss a bit about Barbarella as well and I think it’s a safe bet to say that film is unfortunately not gonna happen. Check out some highlights below, and read on for the full article.

Robert: Rose has been working out 3 hours a day for Red Sonja and is about to start sword training with the Wachowskis’ guy on Monday. Rose will do her own stunts in RS.

Rose: “In Death Proof, the face being slammed against the plexi was mine. I smashed my cheekbone and almost had a concussion, but it wouldn’t look right otherwise. I’m gonna end up like a boxer at 38, but I do as much as I can.”

Rose: From a really early age, being into empowerment, being a feminist, and loving the underdog, and really, in my life, being one. So, I brought it home and said, “I’m really interested in female vengeance!” And then I’m like, “Oh god, therapist…”

This movie is going to be hard, its gonna be cold, its gonna be dirty, bloody. But I’m up for it. (Crowd cheers.)

I keep thinking Ill do a Jane Austen movie, and I said, “Would you ever do a Jane Austen movie?” and Robert said, “Could there be a dead body in it?”

When I was really little, I saw La Femme Nikita, and that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up. I think Nikita would be proud.

Robert: We tried to do Barbarella, and that didnt work. She came into the kitchen with a script for Red Sonja and said, “I really like this script, don’t know if you’ve heard of it…” (Crowd likes this.) She was like, “They want to meet me, Do you think its a good property?”

We decided to do this instead of Barbarella, which we did have funding for, we were gonna do it for $70 million in Germany, but there were other projects…
