Rock will direct the film as well as co-star.
She may be busy Being Mary Jane, but Gabrielle Union is making time for her old friend Chris Rock.
Union has signed on to star as Rock's fiancée in his upcoming film, Finally Famous, confirms TheWrap.com. The actress will play a reality star trying to convince Rock, a comedian trying to reinvent himself as a serious actor, to marry her on TV.
Rosario Dawson also stars in the comedy as a journalist working on a profile piece of Rock but winds up falling for him. Rock will direct the film from his own script, as well as star.
Besides working on her new BET show, Being Mary Jane, Union is reportedly reprising her role from Think Like a Man for that film's sequel, which is currently shooting in Los Angeles.
No word yet on a release date for Finally Famous.
