Rosario Dawson could be Chris Rock’s leading lady soon…
The 33-year-old Puerto Rican & Afro-Cuban American actress is in talks to star opposite Rock in the untitled comedy that Rock wrote and will direct for Scott Rudin and Barry Diller.
The edgy showbiz-themed comedy, which features a hint of romance, will shoot in New York this June.
It’s the latest project for Dawson, who recently signed on to star in Queen of the Night.
Along with appearing in Danny Boyle’s Trance, which opened recently, is set to reprise her role in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, appearing opposite Jessica Alba, later this year.
She’s also set to appear in Diego Luna’s Chavez later this year.
