Grace and Hayek are Getting Faster

ON

Variety reports that Maggie Grace is set and Salma Hayek is in talks to star opposite Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton in CBS Films’ action drama Faster.

Directed by George Tillman, the film will start production next month in Los Angeles.

In the pic, scheduled for an October 15, 2010 release, 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.

Joe and Tony Gayton wrote the screenplay.
