Dwayne Johnson near deal to star in action drama 'Faster'

Posted on

Dwayne Johnson is near to finalizing a deal that would have him starring in action drama Faster, according to Variety. Johnson will play “an ex-con bent on avenging the death of his brother, murdered 10 years earlier when the two were double-crossed during a heist.” Phil Joanou — who previously directed Johnson in Gridiron Gang — is set to direct, and filming is expected to start in August.
