Dwayne Johnson Joining Next Fast and Furious ?


Deadline New York is reporting that Dwayne Johnson is eyeing a starring role in Fast Five, the fifth installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise coming to theaters on June 10, 2011.

In the movie, Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) are fugitives being pursued by relentless lawmen. Our guess is Johnson’s character would lead those lawmen if the deal goes through.

Justin Lin is returning to direct. Chris Morgan wrote the script.
