Rosario Dawson will play the lead role in DMZ, based on the comic book of the same title, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The potential series is set in a United States torn apart by a second civil war, leaving Manhattan a demilitarized zone — the DMZ of the title.

DMZ is based on the Vertigo comic by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli. It’s set in a near-future where the island of Manhattan is a no-man’s-land separating the two sides in a bitter civil war.

Rosario Dawson is no stranger to comic book projects as she starred in Sin City and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For along with the supporting role of Claire Temple in multiple Marvel/Netflix series such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Defenders.

They also tease a little about her character, if you’re not familiar with the comic.

Dawson will play Alma, a fierce medic who saves lives while desperately searching for her lost son. As she contends with the gangs, militias, demagogues and warlords who now control the lawless island, she becomes the unlikely source of what everyone there has lost: hope.

Ava DuVernay is currently attached to direct and co-write the New Gods feature film for Warner Bros., based on the DC Comics characters which is still in development stages.

Rosario Dawson Speaks On New Documentary The Need To Grow

We had the opportunity to cover Rosario Dawson Documentary The Need To GROW Focused on Lesser-Known Human-Caused Ecological Disaster Premiere in Los Angeles, California, Wednesday, October 9 at The Landmark.

With only 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth according to the United Nations, “The Need To GROW” documentary offers viewers an intimate look into the minds and actions of activists and innovators in the food movement, including an 8-year-old girl challenging the ethics of a beloved American icon, the Girl Scouts of America; a renegade farmer struggling to keep his land as he seeks to revolutionize resource-efficient agriculture; and, an accomplished visionary inventor facing catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology to help soil depletion.

This is one of Rosario Dawson most important projects in her career. It informs you and provides answers on how we can maintain and possibly stop issues that could possibly be the end of the human race.

Dawson threw a hell of a premiere and also brought her boyfriend democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker out for this premiere.

We also spoke to Democratic Presidential Candidate Cory Booker about the alleged Ukraine scandal and why he’s sticking up for Joe Biden. Cory also talks about why Donald Trump is allowed to get away with some of the things he says and does. Cory also discusses his plans for the next democratic debate.

The Need To Grow is available on Amazon Prime now.
