“Trance” star Rosario Dawson is in talks to play the female lead opposite Chris Rock in the untitled comedy that Rock wrote and will direct for Scott Rudin and Barry Diller, reports Deadline.com.
The film, described as an edgy showbiz-themed comedy with romance, will shoot in New York this June.
Rudin and Rock linked up after the latter signed on to star on Broadway in The Motherf**ker With The Hat. This untitled comedy marks their first screen collaboration together.
Dawson will next reprise her memorable character in the sequel “Sin City: A Dame To Die For.” She’s also starring alongside Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman and Mireille Enos in the Atom Egoyan-directed “Queen Of The Night.”
