Latino Review has posted a brand new bunch of stills and a new poster from his new film “Faster”, which sees his Rock-ness setting out to avenge his brother’s murder.

Carla Gugino plays a detective on his trail and Billy Bob Thornton and Tom Berenger are on board as well. George Tillman Jr (Men of Honor) is directing the film, with screenplay duties falling to brothers Joe and Tony Gayton.

Despite Johnson’s background as a wrestler, he has shown himself to be a capable actor and a witty and formidable screen presence as well. Welcome to the Jungle was enormous fun and Walking Tall gave Johnson a chance to stretch himself a little. You can catch the teaser trailer that we posted a couple of days ago here, which seems to promise plenty of head-cracking, gun-play and car chases. With a seemingly plum role in this year’s “The Other Guys” and Johnson also currently filming the latest installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, here’s hoping he can put films like Doom and The Game Plan behind him and inject a bit more quality into his CV.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
