*Rosario Dawson is in negotiations to star opposite Aaron Eckhart in “Incarnate,” a potential new horror franchise from Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions.

Brad Peyton is directing the film, which tells of “an unconventional exorcist with the ability to tap into the subconscious of the possessed who meets his match when a 9-year-old boy is possessed by a demon from his past,” according to Blumhouse.

Dawson’s character info is being tightly guarded. She last starred opposite James McAvoy in Danny Boyle’s “Trance” and recently wrapped shooting “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”

Production on “Incarnate” is set to begin in November in Los Angeles.
