The thriller Queen Of The Night stars Ryan Reynolds as the father of an abducted daughter who uncovers a series of disturbing clues eight years later that suggest she is still alive. Rosario Dawson will play the detective in charge of the investigation, and they race against time to rescue the imprisoned girl before the trail goes cold. Dawson joins Scott Speedman and Mireille Enos in the pic, which Atom Egoyan co-wrote with David Fraser and is directing. Principal photography begins next month in Ontario. Ego Film Arts and The Film Farm are producing.

Dawson, repped by CAA and Untitled, is underway reprising her role in the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. She just wrapped Parts Per Billion alongside Josh Hartnett, Penn Badgley and Frank Langella. Her upcoming films include Diego Luna’s biopic Chavez and Danny Boyle’s Trance.
