Salma Hayek says adios to the Dwayne Johnson action film Faster

FASTER, the upcoming action-drama starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Billy-Bob Thornton just lost one of its sexy ladies. :(

Salma Hayek, who we reported getting cast almost a month ago, just dropped out of the film which is getting ready to shoot in exactly a week. No reason is given for her departure, but with production just around the corner, it's assumed we'll be hearing very soon who exactly will be her replacement. Fret not, however, as hotties Maggie Grace and Moon Bloodgood are still in the mix.

The film, directed by George Tillman Jr. (MEN OF HONOR, NOTORIOUS), centers around an ex-con (Johnson) who's looking to avenge the murder of his brother while being trailed by a veteran police officer (Thornton). Bloodgood will be playing the role of Johnson's girlfriend. Grace's role is still unknown.

According to IMDb, FASTER is scheduled to open on November 19.
Extra Tidbit: The film's villain, whom nobody seems to have reported on (and here I am relegating him to our Extra Tidbit), will be played by 24-year-old British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen. The character is known only as "Killer".
