Rodriguez was having trouble getting financing for his upcoming remake of Rose Mc Gowan’s breakup with her fiancé, director Robert Rodriguez, could be good news for some other actresses, who could end up with the leading roles she was set to play in his movies.Asked during a Facebook Q&A how close the remake – in which she would have starred in the title role made famous by Jane Fonda – came to being made, she said: ”We had million to shoot it in Germany, but he pulled the plug because he doesn’t know how to shoot outside of Texas.” The director previously claimed he didn’t want to make the movie in Germany because it would mean being away from the five children he has with ex-wife Elizabeth Avellan for too long.He said: ”Germany offered us a million budget, which would have been by far the biggest budget I ever would have had for a movie."I just want to go to an island somewhere and pay somebody else to deal with it," said Mc Gowan.
