After the dismal family comedy Tooth Fairy, Dwayne Johnson is ready to head back to his action oriented roots. For months we’ve been hearing about his return to fighting form in the George Tillman Jr. directed, Faster. The movie has everything we’d want in an action flick, fast cars, criminals, aggressive cops, and a 6 foot 4 former wrestler. Check out the first photo of Johnson as an ex-con who just doesn’t give a damn…

The story for Faster centers on an ex-con hell bent on avenging his brothers death. Johnson will play a character named Driver, while Billy Bob Thornton will star as a veteran cop who trails him as he races to settle with those responsible for his brother’s murder. Also in the mix is Killer, an egocentric hitman who’s after Driver.

The film also stars Maggie Grace, Moon Bloodgood, and Carla Gugino, which seems like a lot of women for just one guy. We do know that Gugino will play a cop, but the other two actresses characters are anybodies guess. Until we can find out more about them, lets take a nice hard look a Dwayne Johnson in a tank top, handcuffs, and in jail.

What do you think of the first photo of Dwayne Johnson from Faster? Are you ready for his return to action?
