FORMER Miss World Rosanna Davison is going 'gangster style' as she turns her hand to movies.

The top model and Herald columnist has confirmed that she is in talks to make her feature film debut in a new €5m Dublin- based flick entitled Ringsend.

Rosanna said: "I can't say anything more ... but it's correct and I'm delighted to be involved."

Ringsend is described as a 'fast-moving, Irish gangster film' and will begin shooting next October.

Former EastEnders star Martin Kemp, Dublin actor Don Baker and English rocker Terry Chimes – a former drummer with The Clash – are also set to star in the latest high-paced flick to hit these shores.

This will be the 28-year-old's first major film role, but it is not the first time that she has dabbled in acting.

In 2009, Rosanna starred alongside Irish actor Richard Wall in the independent Irish film Vena, in which she played his girlfriend.

Ringsend centres on a hardened drug dealer from Amsterdam who sets up a multi-million pound drug deal with Irish and UK criminals, using a cage-fighting tournament as cover.



Meanwhile Hollywood actress Julianne Hough (24) was in Dublin last night for the Irish premiere of her film Safe Haven.

The dancer turned actress, who shot to fame on hit US show Dancing With The Stars, visited Ireland only once before as a teenager.

This was her second time here after taking part in a prestigious dancing championship in Ireland.

"I've never been to Dublin, but I've been to Kerry," Julianne said.

"When I used to live in London I used to come here for the Irish Open Championship.

"I took part in the ballroom competition and, yes, I did win," laughed Julianne.

After living in London for five years until the age of 15, Julianne returned to the US, where she won the fourth season of Dancing With The Stars.

Julianne was joined at the premiere in the Dundrum Town Centre last night by her co-star and on-screen love interest Josh Duhamel.

Safe Haven will open in cinemas nationwide from March 1.
