Chris Rock has signed Rosario Dawson to play the female lead in his upcoming untitled comedy, which marks his third feature film as writer-director. Deadline has the news and, while plot details are not yet available, they note that the film takes place in New York City and pokes some fun at show business.
Rock’s previous writing and directing projects include 2003′s Head of State and his 2007 remake of Eric Rohmer’s Chloe in the Afternoon, I Think I Love My Wife.
Dawson, meanwhile, recently starred in Danny Boyle’s Trance and is set to reprise her role as Gail in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
