Rose McGowan (Conan the Barbarian, Planet Terror) has joined Jeepers Creepers director Victor Salva’s Rosewood Lane.
The story follows McGowan as she plays Doctor Sonny Blake, a radio talk show psychiatrist, when she moves back to her childhood home after her alcoholic father dies. Once back in her old neighborhood she discovers the local paperboy is a frightening and cunning young sociopath that targeted her father and now targets her. When the boy starts calling her show and recites eerie nursery rhymes, an unnerving game of cat-and-mouse begins. When the game escalates, she suddenly finds herself in a terrifying all out war, one that forces her to redefine her ideas of good and evil, and has her fighting to stay alive.
Victor Salva said: “‘Rosewood Lane’ has been a pet project of mine for years now and what I have always regarded as one of my most terrifying stories. To see it finally come to life, is wonderful.”
Rosewood Lane is financed by Voltage Pictures and produced by Emmy Award winner Phillip B. Goldfine. The film will be Executive Produced by Bryan Sexton and Benjamin F. Sacks under the Hollywood Media Bridge shingle. Don Fauntleroy has been tapped as Director of Photography and will also produce.
Producer Goldfine said of the film: “Rose (McGowan) fully embodies the lead character (Sonny), and with her strong cult following I can see audiences as they enjoy watching the horrific experiences her character goes through.”
