McGowan Drinks From The Black Oasis

Rose McGowan (“Grindhouse,” TV’s “Charmed”) has signed to play the tragic B-movie staple Susan Cabot in “Black Oasis” reports Variety.

Director Stephan Elliot (“Priscilla, Queen of the Desert”) has penned and will direct the film based on a Premiere magazine article by John H. Richardson.

The story follows Cabot’s rise on the B-circuit (she was a favorite of director Roger Corman) and her death at the hands of son Timothy, who bludgeoned her with a weightlifting bar when she was 59.

Shooting will begin this fall. Fortissimo Films will handle international sales.
