Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson are set to join rock star Lenny Kravitz in a new film about a blind gang, according to reports.
Ash Baron-Cohen, the cousin of Sacha Baron Cohen, has written and is directing The Blind B****** Club.
The club is a gang who live life on the edge despite being blind, Screen Daily said.
The film, due to shoot in April in Brazil, focuses on its leader Jake, who meets Angel, a sighted call girl, and introduces her to his world.
Rosario has just finished shooting comedy Zookeeper, while The Wrestler star Mickey has just completed Immortals, alongside Henry Cavill and John Hurt.
Baron Cohen arrived in Hollywood several years before his cousin. His credits include Bang and Little Warriors.
