LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Carla Gugino has signed on to star in the revenge thriller "Faster," CBS Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group said.

Gugino is best known for her work on TV's "Spin City" and "Entourage," as well as for her roles in the films "Son in Law," "Sin City," "Night at the Museum," "Watchmen," "Righteous Kill" and the "Spy Kids" flicks.

The announcement regarding her casting in "Faster" was made Thursday by Amy Baer, president and chief executive officer of CBS Films, the feature film division of CBS Corp.

The project, which started principal photography in early February, is being directed by George Tillman Jr., whose previous film credits include "Notorious," "Men of Honor" and "Soul Food." It co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton and newcomer Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Gugino and Johnson previously worked together on "Race to Witch Mountain."

Penned by Joe and Tony Gayton, "Faster" follows an ex-con as "he sets out to avenge his brother's murder with a deadly to-do list," CBS Films said in a news release. "Gugino plays Cicero, a detective who is hot on his trail as she diligently connects details of this recent crime spree with those of the brother's decade-old killing."
