Jawbreaker Director Puts His Spin on Witches


Discusses new script he’s writing

Darren Stein, the director of the Rose McGowan-starring Jawbreaker, spoke to Movieweb about a film he sounds rather confident about.

“I’m actually writing a film right now, which is about a coven of witches. It definitely feels like something new since it deals with media and reality TV. It’s sort of like picking something that’s mythic and supernatural and wanting to be famous and bringing it into the media age where the Kardashians exist. People are famous for being on TV and, perhaps not doing much. I don’t want to tell you exactly what it is, because I feel the idea is still fresh, and I don’t want to put it out in the press yet, exactly what it is. It’s pretty high-concept, though. It’s like Scream meets Black Swan (Laughs). It’s got sort of a melodrama, girl-on-girl conflict of Black Swan, and the snarky, modern-day media references that Scream had.”

Jawbreaker, in case you care, is making its Blu-Ray debut. We’ll keep you posted if Stein’s witch flick makes it to production.
