Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson are in final negotiations to star alongside Will Smith in Columbia Pictures drama Seven Pounds.
The screenplay, written by Grant Nieporte, centers on a guilt-ridden man who inadvertently falls in love while attempting to kill himself.
Dawson will play a love interest who suffers from a serious heart condition. Harrelson will portray a motel attendant who becomes intrigued by his suicidal new tenant.
The Pursuit of Happyness helmer Gabriele Muccino will direct the film, which Escape Artists and Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment are producing.
Shooting is scheduled to begin in February for a late 2008 release.
