Rosario Dawson's Descent and More

Rosario Dawson's Descent and More

As it is with George Clooney, it seems I can't peruse entertainment websites or magazines these days without seeing something new about Rosario Dawson. Today I've rounded up the top three items — including the new teaser trailer for her movie Descent, which premiered earlier this year at Tribeca — circulating the film world about Ms. Dawson.

1. Dawson has been cast alongside Shia LaBeouf in Eagle Eye, the next thriller on Distrubia director DJ Caruso's list of projects. She mentioned to MTV that she had signed on for the movie, though she gave no specifics about her role. In a separate interview Caruso "would only say that 'she is going to play a character named Zoey.'"

2. Though Kevin Smith seems to think otherwise, Dawson will not, in fact, be starring in Smith's next "bawdy sex comedy" Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Dawson was rumored to be a part of the movie from the beginning, but apparently the production dates conflict with those of Eagle Eye. About Porno, she says, "It’s going to be a really interesting film. I don’t think I’m going to be a part of it. He wrote it for me, but I’m just signing on to do [Eagle Eye] and that’s going to be shooting from November to March."

3. In Descent, Dawson plays a bright and attractive college student who vows revenge on the man who rapes her. You can watch the new teaser trailer for Descent if you

That is really a shame she is not going to be in Kevin Smith's new film. I am a huge fan of her character in Smith's Clerks II… oh well!

So a role is written for her and she turns around and says "Yeah, that's great, I'm making this instead" Don't get me wrong, I love her (after Sin City how could I not) but that seems kind of lame.

I have to agree that she is seriously overrated. She better not ruin Eagle Eye. And if they have her as Shia's love interest, that will be really odd. She played the older version of his girlfriend in A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints opposite Robert Downey Jr., who was playing the older version of Shia.

Something about her annoys me, I cannot quite put my finger on it. I didn't care for her and then her character in Clerks 2 was really annoying. I agree that she is overrated.
