A stint in prison usually has one of two effects on a man – it either breaks him down or makes him stronger. For Driver (Dwayne Johnson), a 15-year sentence proved the latter. His strength was not just fueled by time, but also by a hunger to avenge the murder of his brother during the botched bank robbery that led to his own imprisonment. Untouchable on the ‘inside,’ he made plenty of enemies in prison – men who were counting the days until his release so they could exact their own revenge on the outside. Now, on the day of his release, he is hell-bent on reaping vengeance upon the four men responsible for his brother’s murder. With a list of names and addresses in hand, he sprints out of the prison gates and is immediately on his mission.

No regard for witnesses. No finesse to the acts. One down. Check. Within hours of Driver eliminating the first name on the list, two men are on his trail – Cop (Billy Bob Thornton), a veteran police officer just days from retirement, and Killer, a young egocentric hitman with a flair for the art of killing. The hunter is now also the hunted.

Without hesitation, Driver methodically continues down his list while the mystery deepens surrounding his brother’s murder and who might have tipped off those responsible to their robbery plans. With each killing, Driver finds himself face to face with Cop or Killer and he evades them every time. Killer wants Driver now more than ever – he’s finally met a worthy opponent. Thus begins a do or die race to the list’s finish with new details in the 15-year old murder emerging along the way…hinting that Driver’s list may be incomplete and his life in further danger.

Dwayne Johnson (“Gridiron Gang,” “The Scorpion King,” “The Mummy Returns” ) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Eagle Eye,” “Bad Santa,” Monster’s Ball”) star in “Faster,” a co-production between CBS Films, the film division within CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS), and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group, a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment. George Tillman Jr. (“Notorious,” “Men of Honor,” “Soul Food”) will direct from a screenplay written by Joe and Tony Gayton. “Faster” will start principal photography in January 2010.

The film will be produced by Castle Rock Entertainment’s Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer, along with Tony Gayton and Robert Teitel. Joe Gayton will executive produce.
