Rosario Dawson and Woody Harrelson are in final negotiations to star alongside Will Smith in the Sony Pictures drama “Seven Pounds” reports Variety.

The Grant Nieporte-penned screenplay centers on a guilt-ridden man who inadvertently falls in love while attempting to kill himself. “The Pursuit of Happyness” helmer Gabriele Muccino will direct.

Dawson will play a love interest who suffers from a serious heart condition. Harrelson will portray a motel attendant who becomes intrigued by his suicidal new tenant.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in February for a late 2008 release.
