Talk about random.

Deadline is now reporting that The Rock, a.k.a Dwayne Johnson, is looking at taking up the lead role in the upcoming FAST FIVE, the fifth film in the FAST AND THE FURIOUS series.  The film will most likely see him on the right side of the law, on the hunt for the crew of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.  The new film will see Justin Lin back in the director’s chair, and Chris Morgan as the writer, with the crew currently on the look for exotic locations to shoot the film.

While I think the franchise is not only a lowly one, but one that I think is slowly losing any and all of its popularity, I do think that if you throw in Johnson, the film may not be all that solid, but it will no doubt make the studios very wealthy.  This is yet another step in the direction of more action films for Johnson, who has been doing films like THE TOOTH FAIRY for what seems like years now.

You know, if Johnson and Diesel have to face off, at least it’s not in a sequel to THE PACIFIER or TOOTH FAIRY.  For that, we all can be truly thankful.  Now I’ll go back to not caring about this project.

    I have become a fan of the Fast and Furious films over the years. I am sorry that Luke Black and Bow Wow are missing from this film. But I am happy that Tyrese (Baby Boy ) Gibson s included in this film. I will definitely see this film. I am also a Dwayne(The Rock) Johnson fan. Will comment next on the movie.
