Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has revealed he's enjoying being an action man again.

The ex-professional wrestler has sidelined action films, in which he made his name, with family comedies but is thrilled to be back in the action arena with Faster.

"I left the action genre for a couple of years, but to get back into the pure action genre [in a] revenge thriller is just awesome," he told MTV News.

"We just started shooting Faster a few weeks ago, and the shoot is going great. It's a great space to be back into - I'm back into the space of kickin' a**, which I love to do."

The film, due out in the US in November, begins with Dwayne - who plays the Driver - getting shot in the head.

"The script was great. It's like a mix between The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and Bullitt," he said.

"It has an old-school texture to it where no one has names. There's the Driver, the Killer, the Cop, the Evangelist, the Woman."
