Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are going to mark the upcoming 25th anniversary of their iconic film, Thelma & Louise, but they’re not quite sure how.
Geena Davis thinks that deserves to be remembered on year 25.
“There’s still so much affection for the movie and we loved it,” Geena Davis said.
She added, “It seems like there should be some girl power celebrating going on.”
Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are working on an idea, but don’t have that idea quite fully formed yet.
The Grey’s Anatomy star said that her and Sarandon are focusing on a possible “live show or a tour” or something like that.
Geena Davis says they’re still trying to figure out what is feasible, but says “people seem to like the idea.”
Geena Davis will have to find the time to pull that off, as well! She is one busy lady. Besides starring as Dr. Nicole Herman on Grey’s Anatomy, she is also preparing for her new Bentonville Film Festival.
The festival is coming up May 5th in Bentonville, Arkansas, and will have a focus on women and diversity in film. Geena Davis says it will be the first film festival to guarantee distribution to the winner.
She is also heavily involved in the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, an organization she founded that promotes more diverse female characters in entertainment.
So, when does Geena Davis find time for acting? Or planning that “live show or tour” for Thelma & Louise?
The secret is, Geena doesn’t take every role tossed her way. She waits for the really, really great ones.
“If it was a great part and it was shooting in China I’d be doing it. I’d find a way,” Geena Davis said.
She added, “I’ve had such great parts and I’m a little fussy and haven’t run out of money yet so I like to wait until the really good things come along.”
