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."

Rose-McGowan.com opened its doors on February 12, 2007, which means that today, on February 12, 2012, we are celebrating the site’s fifth birthday!

To celebrate the occasion we are doing five different look backs at various aspects of Rose McGowan and the site. We are starting with this post, which features five of the highlights of Rose-McGowan.com between the years 2007 and 2012.

• In November 2007 and July 2009 we conducted exclusive Q&A sessions with Rose McGowan herself. Needless to say, this was a great honor and these interviews remain some of the greatest highlights of the site.

• Every year we’ve aimed to create something special in honor of Rose’s birthday on September 5. One of the highlights includes our 2009 birthday project. Over 30 fans from 16 different countries contributed to the 32+ paged color printed scrapbook, which consists of letters, birthday wishes, fan art, poems and local postcards, all dedicated to Rose. We also gifted her with some gorgeous Boston Terrier memorabilia, including a stunning figurine. Rose was deeply touched by the gift and sent us a very sweet thank you note. View the birthday project page for further details.

• In August 2010 we auctioned an authentic Rose McGowan autograph to benefit Boston Terrier Rescue Net, one of Rose’s favorite charities, in honor of the actress’ 37th birthday. View the news post for further details.

Rose-McGowan.com was mentioned the August 2011 issue of Total Film. The magazine featured a truly wonderful article on Rose and used our site as an example of Rose’s Old Hollywood demeanor. It was a huge honor to us that it was recognized by a magazine, especially one as awesome as Total Film! View the news post for further info.

'The Pastor's Wife' Site
Article written on October 28, 2011 by Mycah & Riikkae-mail

We had the privilege of getting to review Rose McGowan’s next film, The Pastor’s Wife, ahead of it’s debut next Saturday, November 5, at 8 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Read on for Riikka’s take on the film and Rose’s performance as Mary Winkler – and be sure to tune in next week to watch it yourself!

Based on a true story that made national headlines, The Pastor’s Wife centers on the 2006 death of Matthew Winkler, a beloved minister and community leader who was mysteriously shot and killed in his home. During their investigation, the authorities soon zero in on Matthew’s wife, Mary, as the crime’s prime suspect.

But why would Mary, a dutiful preacher’s wife and young mother of three girls, kill her husband? During her trial, shocking secrets about her relationship with Matthew are exposed, answering the disturbing questions many are asking about what really went on behind the closed doors of this “perfect family.”

Based on the non-fiction book by Dianne Fanning, The Pastor’s Wife is produced by Preacher Road Productions Ltd. and Front Street Pictures, with Gerald W. Abrams, Mike Moran, Juliet Smith and Harvey Kahn executive producing. Norma Bailey directs a screenplay written by Robert L. Freedman.

Ask Rose McGowan what she liked about any of her characters, and the word “strong” is bound to come up at least once. The Pastor’s Wife showcases a completely different side of the actress. Here she is Mary Winkler, the wife of Matthew Winkler, a beloved minister and community leader, and mother of three. Mary, unlike Amy Blue, Courtney Shayne, Cherry Darling and many of the characters McGowan is best known for, is soft-spoken, timid and even invisible to those around her. At first sight she appears as to be the antithesis of a quintessential McGowan character. However, as the title of the movie implies, The Pastor’s Wife puts the actress and her character front and center of the story, which allows Rose to act out a wide range of intense emotions.

Napa is about to get a good-looking female sheriff.

Rose McGowan, a prominent Hollywood actress, will play a veteran of the Afghanistan war turned Napa County sheriff in a new movie, Napa, that is scheduled to begin shooting here at the end of the month.

According to director and screenwriter Michael Kerr, film crews are scheduled to begin two weeks of filming at various Napa County locations starting Oct. 31. Producers plan to use several local wineries and the Napa County Courthouse as backdrops.

Shooting is planned to continue in Los Angeles in the second half of November. Producers plan to release Napa in mid-2012, though no distribution deal has been announced.

Though set in wine country, the plot of Napa heavily overhauls Hans Ostrom’s 1991 novel Three to Get Ready, a tale of a new sheriff (a male lawman in the book) in a Sierra Nevada village trying to solve a series of killings while battling small-town politics and the summer wildfire season.

“If you want to see the girl next door, go next door.” – Joan Crawford
If a portal ever opened up between ’40s Hollywood and the present day, Rose McGowan surely stepped through it. “I got somehow stuck in the wrong stitch of time,” she sighs. Just look at the homepage of her approved fan site, Dedicated to a Rose. Pictured sitting on a sofa underneath the poster for Jacques Tourneur’s classic noir Out of the Past says it all. “While I’m happy, there’s this undercurrent of wrongness about my life,” she says. “I do think I would have done much better – or differently – in the studio system.”

What a wonderful surprise! Rose McGowan – and Rose-McGowan.com, yep, this very website – are featured in the August 2011 issue of Total Film! The magazine features a truly wonderful article on Rose and uses our site as an example of Rose’s Old Hollywood demeanor. It means a lot to us that the layout was directly mentioned because we always felt it was a special design and representative of Rose, something that not everyone would get unless they caught the little fan touches. So it is a huge honor to us that it was recognized by a magazine, especially one as awesome as Total Film! Huge thanks to our friend Katie for brightening our day and sending in the scans from the magazine!

There are new layouts up at the Gallery and Fan Archives. These aren’t meant to be too permanent, we mainly needed to do some maintenance behind the scenes and it was easier to create new ones. But we hope you like the new looks for the time being!

Speaking of fanart, the section will be updated sometime around the first of the year. I know we’ve gotten some recent submissions but we just haven’t had time to add them. But we do appreciate your contributions and you’re still welcome to submit. We’ll try to add it as soon as possible then.
