Paul Walker is set to star in another action thriller. Comingsoon reports that the Fast and Furious actor has been cast in Universal's Skyscraper. The film is the first project from his newly signed two-year, first-look production deal with Universal for the actor's Laguna Ridge Pictures. The concept is based on an original idea by Mike Sobel. Walker will also exec produce with Neal Moritz's Original Films producing.
Universal has done very well with Walker's last film, Fast Five. That film has grossed over $630 million dollars worldwide and is one of the biggest films in Universal's history. Walker is slated to start shooting Fast 6, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2013.
Walker is also going to star and exec produce Hours, alongside producer Peter Safran's Safran Company. The thriller is set in post-Katrina New Orleans and is slated to begin production in April.
