CBS Films is in final negotiations with Dwayne Johnson to star in Faster, an action drama that will be Johnson’s next film, reports Variety.
The movie will be helmed by Phil Joanou, who directed Johnson in Gridiron Gang. Joe and Tony Gayton wrote the script.
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.
Shooting is set to begin in August.
