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."
Rose appeared on The Doctors earlier today to spread word about pulmonary fibrosis. Be sure to watch the video right below!
Actress Rose McGowan has had a long and successful career on both the small screen and the silver screen, but her biggest and most challenging role now is finding a cure for pulmonary fibrosis, a disease that claimed the life of her father. Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is an often-terminal scarring of the lungs that obstructs the flow of oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. With no known cause and no cure, Rose is now an ambassador for the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF), and is raising worldwide awareness of the deadly disease.
Rose McGowan stopped by on Studio11LA this morning to discuss pulmonary fibrosis and her role as the Ambassador to build awareness to fight the disease with the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis. Be sure to watch the video below as it is a very important cause, one that she is incredibly passionate about! Screencaptures are also now available in our gallery.
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.
