Rosario Dawson will play the female lead in indie drama Fire With Fire opposite Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Bruce Willis, and Josh Duhamel. Also joining the cast are NFL Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (making his acting debut), Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, and Vincent D'Onofrio

As already reported in a previous post, the film is part of Fiddy's Cheetah Vision production company's 10-picture, $200 million deal announced last year, with Lionsgate releasing the films domestically.

The story centers on "a fireman in the witness protection program who takes matters into his own hands when he's threatened by the man against whom he's set to testify."

Duhamel will play the fireman.

No word yet on what characters the other actors will play.

Stay tuned...

    Wow. A rapper, a football player, and an mma fighter. More evidence that Hollywood has no respect for Black actors.

    Had an epiphany... If TP and 50 formed a studio and stayed BEHIND the scenes as executive producers ONLY... and hired the most talented writers and directors of color... wow. Can you imagine? Not only would the films make money, but could be critically received. Of course, please let the stories stray from the normal fare.

    I'm seriously tired of just hearing about 50 cent getting movie roles.
