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.
