Justin Lin steps down as director of tenth Fast & Furious film


Justin Lin says he has made the “difficult” decision to step down as director of the tenth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise.

The director said he’s proud to have helped build “the most diverse franchise in motion picture history” and is “forever grateful” to the film’s cast and crew.

Fast X is slated for a 2023 release, starring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster, with Charlize also tipping Theron to reprise her role.

In a statement shared on social media on Tuesday, Lin said, “With the support of Universal, I have made the difficult decision to step down as director of FAST X while remaining on the project as producer.

“Over 10 years and five films, we’ve been able to shoot the best actors, the best stunts, and the best damn car chases.

“Personally, as a child of Asian immigrants, I’m proud to have helped build the most diverse franchise in film history.

“I will forever be grateful to the amazing cast, crew and studio for their support and for welcoming me to the FAST family.”

No further details were given about the reason for Lin’s decision.

Lin has directed five Fast and Furious films, including The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), Fast & Furious (2009), Fast Five (2011), and Fast & Furious 6″ (2013).
