Deadline Hollywood is reporting that there may be a match-up between action icons Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel for the next installment of 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise. This should be a welcome relief for The Rock fans, who have watched their hero take part in such silly films as 'The Game Plan' and 'Tooth Fairy.' He's currently charging hard in CBS Films' revenge drama 'Faster' and, in 'Fast & Furious 5,' he may play a lawman tracking down Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker). Justin Lin is returning to direct.
