Deals: Rosario Dawson, Jack Black, Farrelly Bros.

94152__dawson_l-Sin City alumna Rosario Dawson (left) is making two more movies for Bob and Harvey Weinstein at their new company. She’ll costar in Kevin Smith’s Passion of the Clerks and in the Quentin Tarantino-produced Killshot. John Madden (Proof, Shakespeare in Love) is directing that Elmore Leonard adaptation, with a cast that may include Johnny Knoxville, Diane Lane, Mickey Rourke, Thomas Jane, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

-Shaun of the Dead‘s Edgar Wright will direct Them, about a woman who uncovers a worldwide conspiracy. It’s a comedy; School of Rock‘s Jack Black and Mike White will produce, and White will script.

-Remember inaugural Project Greenlight winner Pete Jones? Stolen Summer failed to nip his career in the bud; in fact, he’s sold his script Hall Pass (about a woman who gives her husband permission to cheat) to 20th Century Fox, which has lined up the Farrelly Brothers to produce it.

-It’s time for yet another adaptation of Henry James’ classic ghost story The Turn of the Screw. This one, at Universal, is to be scripted by Chad and Carey Hayes, who updated House of Wax and are also writing a new version of The Blob.

    Thank god Kevin Smith is going back to his roots! Jersey Girl was so bad that even though I saw the movie for free, I STILL called up Kevin Smith and asked him for my 8 bucks back.
    Elmore Leonard novels can make for good movies (Jackie Brown, Out of Site) or for really bad movies (The Big Bounce), so this could be a deal maker or breaker for Dawson.
    Finally, all props to Edgar Wright! Besides Shaun of the Dead, he co-created Spaced, which is the funniest British show since “The Office”.
