Johnson teases Fast And Furious 6

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson says Fast Six will be bigger and better than the previous films

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has revealed that Fast And Furious 6 will be bigger and "better" than the other films.

The GI Joe: Retaliation star, who reprises his role as Diplomatic Security Special agent Luke Hobbs in the sixth instalment of the fast-revving films alongside Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, said the bar has been raised again.

"It's going to be good. We've re-elevated the franchise in a cool way yet again. That was pretty challenging considering Fast Five was a pretty damn good movie, but Fast Six will be better," he said.

The wrestler-turned-actor teased: "There's going to be some great surprises and twists in Fast Six, and my character's kicking ass all over the place. What more could you want?"

In coming months, Dwayne will be seen in black comedy Pain And Gain, followed by crime dramas Snitch and Empire State - while preparing for his role as the eponymous Greek hero in Hercules: The Thracian Wars and his re-match with long-standing rival John Cena at WrestleMania 2013.

"I've been called the hardest-working man in Hollywood - by myself," he said.

"It's a very busy - and fun - time. It's challenging because I have to promote the movies coming out, while also preparing for WrestleMania and for Hercules at the same time. What makes it fun, for me and for audiences, is that it's a bit like a buffet. Whatever you want, you'll get."

The father-of-one revealed his family help to shape his film choices: "I think about my family and about the audience - would they enjoy seeing me in this role, whether it's comedy, action, or family or drama? That's number one."

Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum also star in GI Joe: Retaliation, which is in cinemas now.
