Rose McGowan Gears Up For Hooker Role

25 January 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Charmed star Rose McGowan is set to make a return to movie screens - as a high-priced hooker. The sexy actress, who once dated outrageous rocker Marilyn Manson, will star in actor and director John Shea's The Junkie Priest, alongside former New Kids On The Block star Donnie Wahlberg - who will play a monk. Shea, who wrote the screenplay, says of the brunette beauty, "She has all the superficial glamour that a high-priced hooker has, but she also has all the vulnerability the role requires." He adds of the film, "It's a dark biography of a Franciscan Monk who, in the early '60s, was the first to start a halfway house for hookers on the streets of New York. The monks were forbidden to work with women back then, so he broke rules trying to save these lives." The project will be a re-teaming for Wahlberg and McGowan, who co-starred in Shea's 1998 award-winning indie flick Southie. »
