If anyone even began to mention the possibility of “Rosemary’s Baby,” I would be like “I can’t even let you finish, yes!” I adore it. I don’t think that it could be remade but another film-- I hadn’t seen it until after I filmed “Lovely Molly,” which I guess is kind of a crime, but now that I’ve seen it I adore it-- is “A Woman Under the Influence.” [Gena Rowlands] is incredible in that. I don’t know, I don’t think a remake would work of that necessarily. It’s not really horror but if it was remade, I would also do in less than a heartbeat, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.” In an instant. The Bette Davis role. She’s my favorite. I have many more male idols than I do female, but she’s so strong and powerful-- anything Bette Davis, I am a huge fan.
What’s next for you?
I am writing right now, I am in the midst of writing a short and then also a full length screenplay. They are very different from one another but they are taking up a lot of my time, in a good way. I am ready to get in front of the camera on a role again, but also excited about these two projects. Just one of them for me to star, but both are topics that have interested me because they are two-sided. Because you can look at the two issues that I am writing about in very different ways on both sides, and that interests me.
