Rosario Dawson On For Queen Of The Night
Atom Egoyan's latest

With a leading man (that would be one Ryan Reynolds) in place and shooting set to start soon, Canadian director Atom Egoyan has tracked down the other main element for his new thriller Queen Of The Night. Rosario Dawson will be starring alongside Reynolds.

Queen, whose plot is still largely under wraps save that it will find Reynolds as the father of an abducted child, was co-written by Egoyan and David Fraser, based on an idea by the director. As far as we know it has nothing to do with either the Whitney Houston song or the character in The Magic Flute.

With cameras set to start whirring this month in Ontario, Egoyan also has Scott Speedman and Gangster Squad’s Mireille Enos signed on as part of the ensemble cast.

Dawson has been busy of late, working on the likes of Gimme Shelter, Chavez and Parts Per Billion, which she’s also produced. She’ll be seen as part of Danny Boyle’s heist/psychodrama Trance, which arrives here on March 27, and will also reprise her role as tough nut Gail in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
