First Look at the Rock in Faster

18 Comments

USAToday has your first look at Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in his new, non-kid friendly movie “Faster”. The film has Johnson playing an ex-con who is out to avenge his brother’s murder. Directed by George Tillman (who last directed the rap bio pic “Notorious”), “Faster” also stars Billy Bob Thornton and Carla Gugino as cops trying to put an end to Johnson’s vigilante killing spree. The action movie will also provide eye candy in co-stars Moon Bloodgood and Maggie Grace, and is looking at a November 2010 release date.

After watching Johnson embarrass himself in kiddie movies like “The Game Plan”, “The Tooth Fairy”, and “The Race to Witch Mountain” (which also co-starred Gugino), it’ll be nice to see him busting heads and making people bleed again. And from the looks of the pic below, dude has been keeping in shape.

    He gets to keep his tatts for the movie too! Sweet. Been a while since we’ve seen action Rock. I can’t wait. I’m glad he brushed up on his acting with things like “Gridiron Gang,” and “Game Plan” both of which were actually good. It showed his range and that he’s not just a muscle head. he actually has decent comedic timing and acting ability. That said he should never have done “Tooth Fairy!!!”

    Don’t forget, Southland Tales, which I thought was his best role to date.The movie was a little off beat, but I loved it. His character was a little crazy but he got the nuances of the script down to a T. Cant wait to see where this goes because I hadn’t heard anything about this before now.

      Sorry guy not happening. he may do a show here, and maybe a match too (people are crying for a Cena Vs. Rock match, but with his movie schedule an appearance on Raw or Smackdown is probably all you’ll get for a bit) but he’s done with wrestling. it was good to him and he appreciates the fans, and the stars but it was never his dream to be like Hogan and Flair and Taker doing it for decades. He wanted to play football but injured himself, and got into wrestling instead as it’s in his blood. He put in enough time and will be one of the most remembered personalities of all time. That said he’s a better actor than anyone else from WWE, and I’m glad he’s going back to action flicks.
