Rose McGowan ready to direct

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Rose McGowan is planning her feature-length directing debut with an animation titled "Pomerania".

The actor-activist earlier helmed a breakout short-film "Dawn".

McGowan said the film is a funny take on issues of race, breed and classism.

"It's about a little dog who hides in the closet, and once she comes out of the closet she becomes the queen of a land called Pomerania. And she's at war with Muttlandia, where all the mutts are," she told The Hollywood Reporter on the sidelines of the Odessa Film Festival.

The "Charmed" alum said she is developing a psychological horror project "Sleepwalk", which is in collaboration with Joshua Miller and Mark Fortin, writers of her 2014 short "Dawn".

"It's a very haunting story about a young girl who sleepwalks a lot, and she blurs what is reality and what is false. It's about how we all do that in our own lives.

She also said she is done with acting.

McGowan was one of the multiple women who levelled allegations of sexual harassment, assault and in some cases rape against Harvey Weinstein after the New York Times and The New Yorker exposed a 30-year saga of exploitation.

"People in Hollywood have not been brave enough to step up for me as I stepped up for them. Because I helped to clean out the system and they haven't been brave in return," she said.

"I do miss performing but I feel like acting is in the past, mostly because of the lack of support that I've gotten," she added.
