Dwayne Johnson to Live in the Faster Lane
Fri, 15 May 2009 10:46:09
Dwayne Johnson aka "The Rock" is in the
final negotiations to tackle the starring role in Faster for CBS Films. The action
flick will be directed by Phil
Joanou, who worked with Johnson in Gridiron Gang.
Johnson will portray an ex-con who is out to avenge the death of his brother who was murdered 10 years prior as the
pair were double-crossed while trying to pull off a heist. Shooting kicks off in August. Johnson has done a spate of family-friendly films
in the past few years and this will mark his return to more action-driven fare.
