Who’s Afraid of Vagina Wolf? Do I have your attention?
Well, director Anna Margarita Albelo is preparing to shoot a film by that title. The Cuban-American filmmaker says it was inspired by the classic 1966 film directed by Mike Nichols that starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Albelo describes the independent film as a semi-autobiographical darkly comedic examination of one woman’s midlife crisis, her nervous break down and her coming of age. Michael Urban, co-writer of Saved! wrote the script.
Albelo launched a fundraiser page yesterday via IndieGoGo aiming to raise $25,000 this summer in support of the film. Donors reap benefits, ranging from an official Vagina Wolf sticker to an exact replica of star Guinevere Turner’s face or breasts in latex. Donor categories include The Teen Wolf, The Young Adult Wolf and Welcome to the Wolf Pack. So far, donations total $260.
