Katie Holmes recently confirmed during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival that there have been multiple discussions about a possible Dawson’s Creek reboot with the show’s other leads, including Joshua Jackson, James Van Der Beek, and Michelle Williams. However, Holmes expressed concern about potentially tarnishing the show’s nostalgia by bringing it into today’s world and noted that the show was popular because of its innocence, which was possible before the proliferation of social media and smartphones. She said that until there is a compelling reason to do it, the cast will continue to table discussions about a reboot.
Aside from her potential involvement in a Dawson’s Creek reboot, Holmes discussed her career as an actress, screenwriter, and director. She is the director for Rare Objects, which has just been released in theaters. Holmes stated that her experience as an actress helped her transition to directing, as she knows what it feels like to work with actors and hopes that they feel comfortable with her because she is one of them.
Holmes expressed her willingness to return to big-budget film productions, as she had a positive experience working on Batman Returns. She noted that she learned a lot from director Chris Nolan and that everything about the film production was amazing. Furthermore, Holmes acknowledged the significant progress made by women in the entertainment industry, with there being more opportunities for women to work as directors, executive producers, and writers.
