Rose McGowan is featured in the new issue of Fault Magazine Issue #17. In it she openly admits she has made many movies she’s not proud of and discusses her disappointment over the upcoming The Tell-Tale Heart based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. Saying she hopes it stays shelved, “I felt a little duped by Tell Tale. Blinded by Poe, as it were. Sometimes you think people have a strong vision, and it’s often not the case. Very hard to tell beforehand. Sucks discovering it.” Rose goes on to say: “It’s very hard to make a film that comes together on all levels. It’s like painting with 100 paintbrushes that are held by individual egos.” It sounded like a very promising project, so it will be quite interesting if the final product ever makes release.
The article isn’t all negative though, Rose talks about how she hopes to keep directing after Dawn and that getting into Sundance with the film has been the highlight of her career.

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.

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.”

The trailer for John La Tier’s The Tell-Tale Heart, starring Rose McGowan, Patrick John Flueger and Peter Bogdanovich, has just been released. It looks very atmospheric, visually arresting and promises a great role for Rose. I, for one, cannot wait to see this one!
According to IMDb, John La Tier’s The Tell-Tale Heart will see its North American release on October 15, 2013. Keep in mind that this has not been confirmed by official sources as of it so take it with a grain of salt. But fingers crossed we’ll see the film this year!
In other movie related news, the Chris Ekstein directed Last of the Duanes has been renamed Rise of the Lonestar Ranger and it will open March 6, 2014 in USA.
Last but not least, Rose’s Once Upon a Time episode, titled The Miller’s Daughter, will air on March 6, 2013 on ABC!
Exciting times ahead for McGowaniacs!
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 Heart Facebook page.
I’m kind of at this strange crossroads in my life. I’m trying to figure out where I want to be. And I love Los Angeles in the sense that I love my friends there and I love my life there, but the business 24-7 just grinds on you. There’s no escape for you. I notice that my self-esteem and my general sense of well-being is much higher when I’m not there, and it’s sort of sad to live your life somewhere that makes you sad.
At Halloween time, however, it feels like a match made in — well, made somewhere. Which explains just about everything you need to know about the tone of the indie production of Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart that crept quietly into town almost two weeks ago and which will continue shooting through Nov. 10.
For star Rose McGowan (Charmed, Grindhouse) that kind of instant atmosphere is an actor’s dream. “Basically, if I could liken this movie to anything,” McGowan said, “it would be a dark moonlit night, (seen) through the Spanish moss.”
In other words, although Poe’s original Gothic tale doesn’t specify a location, the specter of New Orleans can’t help but float in and out of writer-director John La Tier’s feature-length adaptation. In fact, La Tier, who moved to an apartment near the Algiers ferry during the script’s early development, couldn’t resist but to incorporate the city’s textures into his film.
The very first production stills from The Tell-Tale Heart, the Edgar Allan Poe’s short story film adaptation that Rose McGowan is currently working on in New Orleans, have been released today and are now available in the gallery. The atmospheric stills feature a radiant looking Rose with the film’s leading man Patrick John Flueger. Credit for the stills goes out to the Hollywood Reporter.

I have some excellent news to bring this morning! PRWeb is reporting that Rose McGowan, along with Patrick John Flueger and Peter Bogdanovich, will star in the upcoming film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic short story The Tell Tale Heart. We are happy to report that Rose has confirmed the news to us and that she is very excited to begin work on the new project!
Inspired by Poe’s imaginative short story, this independent film brings mystery, romance, and suspense to the literary classic. Production on The Tell Tale Heart begins October 20 and will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana. The picture will be directed by John La Tier while Daniel Zirilli will act as the producer.
“It was always our intention to stay true to Poe,” says La Tier. “We want this film to be something he would be proud of, and I believe this captivating script, combined with this cast and art direction, is going to be just that.”
