Carla Gugino joins Dwayne Johnson and Maggie Grace in Faster
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The severely underrated Carla Gugino is set to star as a federal agent on the trail of an ex-con out for revenge in the upcoming action film FASTER. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will star as the ex-con with Billy Bob Thornton, Maggie Grace, Moon Bloodgood and Oliver Jackson-Cohen also starring. The film will be directed by George Tillman Jr. (NOTORIOUS).
You might remember that we just told you Salma Hayek had dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts”, and it’s not completely clear Gugino is her replacement, but it would at least appear so. In this case, I think I prefer Gugino, since it sounds like she’ll be playing a tough, sexy character, which is exactly what Gugino is.
