Exclusive : Rosario Dawson may form Republic with Wesley Snipes

John Leguizamo and Djimon Hounsou also up for roles in Peter Gathings Bunche thriller

With Kevin Smith announcing he’s pushing “Clerks III” back, Rosario Dawson finds herself with a slot to fill on her Google calendar.

Word is, she’s been approached to take on the female lead in a new Wesley Snipes venture titled “Banana Republic” – which would occupy those available dates.

Written and directed by Peter Gathings Bunche, it’s the tale of a D.C Think-tank operative who – by wearing the guise of an international rock star and major player – tries to take over a small island by tossing out its current overlord. John Leguizamo and Djimon Hounsou are said to be in talks too.

The Snipes movie – yep, he’s an in-demand commodity again; apparently does some good work in “The Expendables 3”- is one of the many titles being shopped around Berlin this year, with a 2014 shoot tied in with the attachments.

Dawson next appears in Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City : A Dame to Kill For”.
