According to Variety, Carla Gugino (Watchman) has inked a deal to co-star opposite Dwayne Johnson in the thriller Faster. This is a co-production between CBS Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.

Faster began principal photography earlier this month. It is being directed by George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor).

The screenplay was written by Joe and Tony Gayton. Faster sees Johnson's ex-con character set out to avenge his brother's murder.

Gugino will play the detective in charge of the investigation. She is on his trail and connecting the killings with a decade-old case.
