CANNES, France — Getting downsized out of screen roles is inevitable for most actors — and particularly actresses — as they get into their 40s and beyond. With her writing-directing debut, Famke Janssen is taking the do-it-yourself route to ensuring she still has a film career. Janssen's mother-son comic drama "Bringing Up Bobby," starring Milla Jovovich, is playing in the huge movie market that accompanies the Cannes Film Festival, where the filmmaker hopes to find distributors to put it into theatres in the United States and elsewhere.

The 46-year-old Janssen aims for a career balance of acting and directing. "I'm hoping that I can juggle both for a little bit, at least," Janssen said in an interview. "The older you get as a woman, the less parts you'll have just by nature. And then I really don't want to go down the whole plastic surgery route and become obsessed with the way I look, which is very much a part of being an actress, sadly.

Bringing Up Bobby is the story of a European con-artist and her son Bobby, who find themselves in Oklahoma in an effort to escape her past and build a better future. Olive and Bobby blithely charm their way from one adventure to another until Olive’s criminal past catches up with her. Consequently, she must make a choice: continue with a life of crime or leave the person she loves most in an effort to give Bobby a proper chance in life.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Production is underway on another movie being filmed in Oklahoma. It stars Milla Jovovich and Bill Pullman. It's just another example of Oklahoma becoming more competitive when it comes to landing Hollywood productions. That's due, in part, to a 35 percent cash rebate to the film makers for expenditures while in Oklahoma; an incentive that was more than doubled a year ago.

"Well, I love Oklahoma," actor Bill Pullman said. Pullman certainly is getting to see a lot of Oklahoma and the state's people. He took time out this week from filming "Bringing Up Bobby" in Oklahoma City to talk to the Boys & Girls Club. It was about this time last year he was wrapping up another film "The Killer Inside Me" in Guthrie.

"It feels like just stepping back out of time and that town is a real treasure, so it was great to kind of see that," said Pullman. "But in this one, I'm seeing a lot more of the diversity. I realized this is kind of an interesting city that's in the center of America has got a great kind of community spirit and I thought that's the kind of thing I only would hear about. I wonder if I'll ever get a chance to see it."

Oklahoma-based movie starring Milla Jovovich is directed by Famke Janssen.

Filming of "Bringing Up Bobby,” an upcoming movie starring Milla Jovovich, continues across central Oklahoma. Director Famke Janssen filmed scenes at the Oklahoma County Courthouse and at the Pops 66 restaurant in Arcadia.

Pops General Manager Marty Doepke said he was first visited by Janssen about a year ago. "She just showed up one day, and of course everybody recognized her,” Doepke said. "She said she was scouting locations for a film she was directing and was interested in shooting at Pops.”

Doepke said that trip was followed up by an assistant about 2 1/2 months ago, confirming that the production had chosen Pops as a location to shoot. "How can you say no that?” Doepke said. He said Janssen has been out many times since the agreement was struck, and the shoot took place Wednesday evening, shortly after closing time. "They didn't want us to close down or clear the store,” he said. "If was fun for the staff, and the customers who were still here thought it was neat, too.”
