The casting news tonight is all over the place: First we have Billy Bob Thornton teaming up with Dwayne Johnson in Faster, a George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor, Notorious) action drama vehicle. Johnson will star as Driver, an ex-con out for revenge following his brother’s murder. Thornton plays Cop, a (you guessed it) police officer tailing Driver. There’s also Killer, a hitman who’s after Driver for some reason (my god, maybe he killed Driver’s brother?!). The latter role remains uncast.
