Carla Gugino to star in ‘Faster’

Actress set for CBS Films, Sony revenge thriller

Carla Gugino has signed on to co-star opposite Dwayne Johnson in the revenge thriller “Faster,” a co-production of CBS Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.

Project, which started principal photography earlier this month, is directed by George Tillman Jr. (“Notorious,” “Men of Honor,” “Soul Food”).

Castle Rock Entertainment’s Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer are producing alongside Tony Gayton and Robert Teitel.

Scripted by Joe and Tony Gayton, “Faster” follows Johnson’s ex-con character as he sets out to avenge his brother’s murder with a deadly to-do list.

Gugino plays the detective in charge of the investigation, hot on his trail and hell-bent on connecting the killings with a decade-old case.

Gugino was seen in “Watchmen” and “Race to Witch Mountain” and has teamed with “Watchmen” director Zach Snyder on his upcoming film “Sucker Punch” for Warner Bros.

She recently starred on Boadway in Robert Falls’ “Desire Under the Elms.”
