The Last of the Mohicans star Madeleine Stowe is finally bringing her western screenplay to the big screen after turning down $5 million (£3.1 million) to hand the project over to movie bosses at Twentieth Century Fox almost a decade ago.
The studio executives wanted the movie rights to Unbound Captives, but they didn't want her.
Instead, they wanted Gladiator star Russell Crowe to take the lead and Sir Ridley Scott to direct the film about a white woman whose children are taken by Comanche Indians in the 1860s.
Stowe says, "Without a moment’s thought, I turned it down."

And it wasn't just any date for Stowe - she was an 18-year-old virgin who had never been out with a guy before.
Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in America on Tuesday (17Apr12), she recalled, "I had my first date when I was 18-and-a-half, and it was Dennis Quaid, who is a wonderful, beautiful human being... It was a great first date (but) I don't know if it was for him. I was a virgin and I was afraid to kiss him.
"We kissed and we made out and he told friends, 'I think she's a virgin and I don't wanna take that responsibility.' That's a champ."

Wearing a light sweater, a tank top, jeans and a warm smile,she exudes no movie star pretension whatsoever. In fact, as she settlesin to a chair at the end of her suite's dining room table, she seems likeany other working mom. I half expected her to offer me glass of iced teaand start talking about the PTA.
In town to promote "TheGeneral's Daughter," her new film withJohn Travolta, instead of bringing up the PTA she's on a surprisingly on-the-leveltact about the movie biz and is genuinely interested in having a conversationrather than a prefabricated Q&A. In fact, our rendezvous starts witha question from Stowe, inquiring about the PowerBook that I whip out totake notes on. She's none too savvy when it comes to computers, she confesses,asking how one moves around on the internet.
Well, you type in a web address or click on a link.

Only three or four minutes after the lights go down, any credibility "The General's Daughter" might have as a serious drama goes right out the window with the introduction of the title character.
At a retirement party for The General (James Cromwell), a military banquet hall is filled with brass honoring their commander. The camera searches row after row of stern-looking, spit-and-polish men before moving into a close-up of his daughter (Leslie Stefanson), a hot babe of the underwear model variety, smiling a centerfold smile and, except for her uniform, looking for all intents and purposes like she should be jumping out of a cake.
Forgoing the opportunity for a relatively realistic female officer portrayal like Demi Moore in "A Few Good Men," "The General's Daughter" asks us to believe that this porcelain blonde, who looks like she'd cry if she broke a nail, is not only an army captain but a doctor -- a shrink who instructs soldiers in the psychological warfare, no less.
