"Charmed" star Rose McGowan is set to play B-movie staple Susan Cabot in "Black Oasis", a biographical feature about the actress.
Opts for more big screen roles after being seen on the small one for some time, particularly that of "Charmed", Rose McGowan has given her agreement to portray the tragic B-movie staple Susan Cabot in a biopic of the actress entitled "Black Oasis."
Based on a Premiere magazine article written by John H. Richardson, the project will chronicle Cabot's rise on the B-circuit, in which she was a favorite of director Roger Corman, up to her death at the hands of son Timothy, who bludgeoned her with a weightlifting bar when she was fifty-nine years old.
Production is slated to start this fall with Stephan Elliot helming from his own script. Meanwhile, Hilary Shor and Tony Smith are both set to produce via their Hit & Run Productions.
