Mega-watt hottie Rosario Dawson ("Sin City") has signed on for a pair of productions over at The Weinstein Company, says Variety. One is the Elmore Leonard ensemble adaptation "Killshot," and the second will be Kevin Smith‘s "Clerks" sequel."

"The Weinsteins are near deals with Johnny Knoxville and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to join Diane Lane, Mickey Rourke and Thomas Jane in "Killshot," the John Madden-directed adaptation of the Elmore Leonard bestseller.

"Killshot" involves a couple who flee to the witness protection program, with a gangster in pursuit. Dawson will play the girlfriend of the gangster’s dangerous sidekick, a role that went to Gordon-Levitt. Knoxville will portray the FBI agent trying to keep the couple alive.

Dawson, who’ll next be seen in the Chris Columbus-directed screen adaptation of the Broadway musical "Rent," starts "Killshot" next month and will bounce from that film to "Passion of the Clerks," the sequel that was written and will be directed by Kevin Smith."
