Is a match-up between action icons Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel in the works for the next installment of The Fast and the Furious? Sources tell me it’s not a done deal but that Johnson is eyeing a starring role in Fast & Furious 5. He’s already in driving mode on the CBS Films revenge drama Faster, and here, it appears Johnson’s character will be on the right side of the law. Fast & Furious 4 reinvigorated the franchise with a $155M domestic haul.
