Rosario Dawson has really made herself quite a name as an actress. From being cast (literally) on her doorstep by Harmony Korine and Larry Clark for their film KIDS, to her work with Quentin Tarantino in DEATHPROOF, she is now a solid cinematic bet.

Dawson has now booked one of her next roles in FIRE WITH FIRE, where she will play opposite Bruce Willis and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, with Josh Duhamel taking up the lead role.

The film follows a firefighter who enters into the witness protection program to protect himself from a thug who he is set to testify against in court. When the thug begins threatening his love interest, he must take matters into his own hands. While Duhamel will be playing the firefighter, it seems Dawson will be playing the love interest.

The film seems to be coming along just fine, with the cast turning out pretty well. It's hard to be sold immediately on Willis or Jackson without knowing exactly how they will portray their roles, but the film sounds like an interesting fit for everyone involved. There's no doubt that Dawson will bring her all to the film, making us less likely to get burned.
